Dad Sues Florida DCF for Wrongfully Taking his

Dad Sues Florida DCF for Wrongfully Taking his

William Dunn, 44, of Lakeland, Florida is suing that state's Department of Children and Families, claiming that it failed to properly investigate an allegation of child sexual abuse against him. Read about it here (The Ledger, 7/13/09). Florida DCF separated Dunn from his daughter for almost a year before determining that no abuse had occurred. Apparently the child had told the agency that her father had sexually abused her and then recanted the charge at the final hearing into the matter.

  5. Get together and file class action against them. The only way these crooked cops (CPS are employees of PCSO) will ever change is by using the law, their laws, against them.

    I speak with an attorney today about a suite. I would love for others to come forward and participate in a series of class action suites against the sheriffs departments, as well as against the privately owned "service providers" that partner with CPS; ie Directions for Mental Health, inc.

    4. I am looking to sue DCF due to the fact that my child was sexually assaulted and DCF tried to claim that I had mental issues after failing to fully investigate the matter. I have been through a tpr trial as well as the first appeal process where I am being turned into a suspect instead of a concerned parent looking for the legal justice being deprived within my parental rights. The courts have proclaimed that while participating in a case plan I was irrespective to services to use against me with the tpr however I have been thorough with cooperating and the assigned case worker has badgered me, harassed me, made false accusation of my behavior, as well as underreported facts to the court to terminate my rights. DCF will ignore a parents rights while fighting to prove the obstacles I have been put through. My child and I have a great bond and soon he will be placed for adoption without having the appropriate justice we both deserve.I am willing to participate in as many lawsuits against DCF to receive the proper justice that as a parent I deserve. Please contact me at 727-906-6007 K.Harrison

    I would like to sue DCF/CPS.. They wrongfully accused me of sexual abusing my stepdaughter even though she continually tells them I have never touched her they insist I am "grooming" her, with no supportive evidence they took her out of our home and gave her to her birth-dad (my wife's ex) who had previously abused her as an infant and is an illegal! They insist that my wife leave me, but our daughter insists that nothing has happened to police, dcf and cps. They have never even questioned me! It has been two months now and we are awaiting the hearing to oppose the charges of abuse against me and neglect of my wife for allowing it to happen...

    Is it true DCF get bonuses from removals? They removed my children reason was from medical neglect, educational neglect, emotional neglect, carpal punishment all listed by the Judge unfounded. Case plan is stable housing not with your mom and stable income? Then they can come home. I was recently employed and should have stable housing by the first of the month. A few days ago the new born was taking, the court order stated the reason was dcf said the baby was born in the house to avoid them. Sounds like a light cause to get a court order but it's also a lie. Now days later they want to I
    Do an investigation , for what they said whAt they wanted to say to have another child removed. Can I sue these people please help I need advice

  12. My daughter was wrongfully taken by a DCF worker, here in Pinellas County, back in October of 2012-- She first said she wasn't taking my daughter, gave me a list of "tasks" I had to complete and these were her stipulations, for me to have my daughter returned to me. I completed of the tasks she ordered of me, I phoned her several times, to INFORM her of this (she repeatedly rejected my calls, nor returned them) and once I finally DID get her on the phone she got her suprvisor on the phone, with us and she denied ever saying ANY of the things she really said and told me that she "couldn't help me with (my) request"! The case was opened in October, closed in November (a fact of which I was never informed), then 4 months later, after calling my daughter's father (a registered, pedophile who had DESERTED my daughter, mind you) on the day she "half-heartedly investigated me", to pick my daughter up, from her babysitter's house, a Pinellas County judge granted him custody of my daughter and (SOME how) this DCF worker was a "witness" for my husband, on the stand and she hadn't been involved, in MONTHS--- now, I'm facing jail time, for "non-compliance with child support enforcement", I'm being held in "contempt" even though I showed the hearing officer my medical records, showing him that I have CHF, Diabetes, Epilepsy and Fibromyalgia. I have NO MONEY for an attorney, Pro Bono attorneys that I've spoken with, say they won't handle the case, because it's been "so many YEARS, now" (I began fighting this, the day it BEGAN, but have never been able to afford more than to just have a consultation with a couple of attorneys) or they simply say they don't handle child custody or family law cases. Please, my daughter was 9 when she was "legally kidnapped" and now she's almost 13 and no one will help me... If anyone has ANY advice, it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thanks

  14. I just fought a case in Flagler County we lost custody for 6 months in false charges made by a angry ex employer that we quit working for because he was sexually harassing my husband he than says he is going to take our kids for 4 months and 1 day they come while my mother was watching them and just took them. 11 days not telling us where they are or letting us even call them and we were able to get them out in my mother's care back in my home. Me and my husband chose to sleep in our car and be homeless for 6 months so they could be home with my mother we were told by every one that nobody beats dcf cases and we can be right and not have our kids or just admit to something we did not do and get them back. Well we were 28th our kids everyday any ways and is rather admit to robbing a bank if I didn't do it than harming my kids I just cannot say that I hurt the thing I love the most 6 months with out our parental rights and 3 days before trial they offer to drop everything if me the mother submits to a pyscological exam on the basis that at the shelter hearing I was crying my eyes out and was inconsolable. I have almost died and looking my kids hurt worse than that. No not only did I say no I told them I was OFFENDED how dare you say my reaction to you taking my 3 kids 5 2 and only 6 months was inappropriate it's nature even a mama dog will bite you if you mess with her babies even animals in the wild yet a human cannot be upset when you take their babies.TODAY WAS TRIAL they voluntarily dismissed it. And I want to sue! They slandered us by telling our neighbors the allegations they went to my husband's ex wife who has nothing to do with any thing. That is just the tip of it. If anyone knows lawyers let me know I'll join Class Action lawsuits and please know this. If you did nothing wrong DONT let them win. You can win if you fight them don't take their case plans take it to trial YOU HAVE RIGHTS.Its just sad hearsay is legally enough to loose custody of I can help contact me.

  26. I can comment, the same thing happened to me. However, I have done my homework. And when I say homework, I mean studying civil law for the last year. No lawyer wants to help you out of the goodness of their heart, nor would they. All youre cases are more than likely losers, BUT, if you make a real effort to learn the law then filing youre own lawsuit without an attorney that you cant afford or are willing to pay the kings ransom fee they would charge. File youre lawsuit pro se and in forma pauperis, and it will then be public record everything you write, and scrutinized by people that could help.

    My story starts like all the rest, and 2 years later has not ended. My daughters mother was in jail and when she was free, her visitation with our daughter was court odered at the CJC building. However she called me on my telephone and my daughter answered, The entity called devereux, in partnership with Eckerd then somehow listened to the recorded jail call and decided to say I had violayed the court order, signing an affidavit alleging the court made an order that specified "contact through the CJC" and it really stipulated "visitation" and based on this fraudulent affidavit, the slack jaw, turkey neck attorney general made an emergemcy hearing to stick my baby in foster care, only they abducted my kid kid from school prior to the judge ruling against them and scolding them that this did not constitute any "emegency" and they were forced to give me my kid back after she didnt get off the bus and I had no clue where she was and I was frantic looking for her, only to find out someone signed her out of school early. If you want a reference to plead youre own case pro se, SEE BEISEL V DANVERS, KIDD, DEVEREUX, ECKERD case # 8:17-cv-00264

    Study, read and then study and read some more. You have 2 years to bring youre case so take youre time and google.... how to state a claim under 42 USC 1983. Be assertive, and never stop fighting for youre kids!
