MATTERS INVOLVING DHHS

If the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) are involved in your matter you should urgently seek legal representation to ensure that you understand your rights and obligations, and what you can do to address the concerns raised by DHHS.

One of the duties of the DHHS is to focus on the wellbeing of children, particularly when family violence or child abuse is raised.

DHHS have the power to remove children from your home, and they also have the power to direct you to undertake steps to improve your health and wellbeing.
