The Administration for Child Services (ACS) was created nearly 10 years ago with a mission to protect the safety of children in New York City. Unfortunately, the agency frequently pins false accusations of abuse and neglect on parents and lives are torn apart as a result. If you were contacted or are being investigated by ACS, the best thing you can do is secure legal representation.

Our goal is to fight this organization on your behalf and ensure that your best interests are upheld at all costs. With over 20 years of family law experience, you can have confidence in the know-how of our firm’s New York City divorce lawyer.

ACS commonly gets involved in child custody cases, particularly when parents are at odds with one another. One parent may contact ACS with an unverified complaint, which then causes the organization to begin investigating the matter. Even the smallest complaints can cause lasting ramifications for both the child and the parents.
ACS can become involved in a family law case for any of the following reasons:
While it may seem like the investigation is innocent or that ACS is on the parents’ side, this is often far from the truth. Just one accusation of neglect or abuse makes you responsible for proving your innocence to ACS, something that is difficult without an experienced attorney on your side.
Our firm is focused solely on family law cases and dedicates our efforts to fighting for the well-being of families under the microscope of ACS. We won’t leave you to fend for yourself; instead, we utilize a vast array of resources to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
When the future of your family is on the line, there is no time to waste. Don’t give ACS the upper hand – get in touch with Attorney Peter L. Cedeño today and pursue justice.
