Facing a child abuse or CHIPS case in Wisconsin can be overwhelming. At Levine Law, we understand the gravity of these situations and offer experienced legal representation to protect your parental rights. Our attorneys are dedicated to navigating complex child welfare laws, ensuring fair treatment and the best possible outcome for your case.

Maintaining a strong parent-child relationship can be demanding in today’s culture. When the government steps in to ask questions about how an individual is parenting, the potential consequences can be harsh. Allegations of child abuse or neglect can lead to a range of potential consequences. Not all allegations seem fair.

Disputes between parents, misperceptions of individuals about an event and other situations may arise that turn into an investigation. Investigations into potential child abuse may begin with law enforcement, through the Division of Milwaukee Child Protective Services (DMCPS) or both. DMCPS access workers often rely heavily on law enforcement investigators to develop a Child in Need of Protection or Services (CHIPS) proceeding.

What do I do if I have been accused of child abuse or neglect in Wisconsin?

In a DMCPS investigation, police and social workers are given authority to take a child into custody if authorities believe the child is in danger. If your child has been removed by social services or if you believe that officials are investigating allegations of abuse or neglect, it is critical for you to speak to a lawyer who has experience in this nuanced area of the law. With the potential for termination of parental rights, as well as possible charges of child abuse in criminal court on the horizon, there is no time to wait. We have substantial experience representing men and women across the spectrum of criminal child abuse and CHIPS matters, and can help you tackle legal questions regarding child abuse, such as:
  • Is spanking considered child abuse in Wisconsin?
  • What constitutes unreasonable force in providing discipline to a child?
  • Can drug addictions or drug offenses qualify me for child endangerment as a parent?
  • Can domestic violence allegations cause my child to be taken by social services?
Our attorneys aggressively defend parents accused of child abuse or neglect in criminal court, as well as in CHIPS or termination of parental rights proceedings.
