Los Angeles County Child Abuse Central Index Grievance Hearing
When the LA County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) places your name on the CACI, the only way you can get off is by requesting a Los Angeles County Child Abuse Central Index Grievance Hearing.Three Specific Facts You Need to Know About Los Angeles County Child Abuse Central Index Grievance Hearings
There are a few things you need to know about how the Los Angeles County DCFS handles CACI Grievance Hearings.
First, the number of people in Los Angeles County who are placed on the CACI, actually have grievance hearings, and actually win their hearings amounts to a tiny percentage of the overall number of people placed on the CACI by DCFS. For example, in the year 2016, it was just less than 5%.
Second, Los Angeles County Child Abuse Central Index Grievance Hearings account for nearly half of all grievance hearings that take place in the entire state of California. LA County does a ton of CACI grievance hearings. Most of the people who have hearings represent themselves, without a lawyer by their side. And most of the people who lose their hearings don’t have a lawyer.
Third, at the time I write this, there are four Los Angeles County Child Abuse Central Index Grievance Hearing Officers (i.e., the “judges” in CACI hearings)…and each of them has seen a lot of CACI grievance hearings—I dare say more than anyone else in the entire state of California. Whatever your situation, chances are they’ve seen multiple cases with somewhat similar allegations. They’ve seen it all. And they aren’t going to fall for a “sob story.” You don’t win your hearing because you’re a good person or because the hearing officer feels bad for you. The hearing officers are seasoned, knowledgeable, and understand the nuances and sophisticated legal issues that come with child abuse allegations.Two Reasons Why Those Three Specific Facts are Important to You
What does all this mean for you? Two things:
One, it means if you want to give yourself the best chance to get your name off the Child Abuse Central Index by winning your hearing, you would be very wise to hire a lawyer who can meet the Los Angeles County Child Abuse Central Index Grievance Hearing officers eye-to-eye and matches their level of experience and knowledge when it comes to child abuse cases. You need a lawyer by your side who the hearing officer knows and respects. You need a credible lawyer who can speak the same language as your hearing officer and advocate your position in compelling fashion.
Two, because they do so many CACI hearings in Los Angeles county, they have developed a formal system for conducting the hearings. The hearings are quite a bit more formal than in other counties. The hearing is conducted much more like a real court trial than hearings in other counties. This is a good thing because it means your rights may be more likely to be protected. On the other hand, it also means if you don’t have a lawyer representing you and you don’t know the California Rules of Evidence, you may have a hard time presenting your case and attacking the allegations against you.Here’s how You Know I can Help You Win Your Los Angeles County Child Abuse Central Index Grievance Hearing
