    If you are truly innocent you do not have anything to fear. Help DCYF out to learn the truth. No one in DCYF is out to get you, if you get carried away hiring lawyers, etc. You will look guilty! Innocent people have nothing to fear from any investigation. The truth will out!. If your children are bruised you should be interested in how this happened, what happened, when this happened and who did it. Perhaps DCYF can help you solve the mystery and you both can avenge your brood. PS if the neighbor lied, they can get into trouble with the law. Falsely accusing people is illegal.

    Having dealt with DCYF in the past I can assure you that if the allegations are false you are ok. Organizations across the U.S. have been getting false complaints for years, and they are used to handling them. Many times even if the parent did commit abuse they will work with them giving them a plan of action that will help curve something like that from happening again. The plans usually entail doing some sort of classes or counseling and help parents learn to handle some of the more unpredictable situation that can arise with children.  As one person pointed out that you can obtain a lawyer, although they usually are unable to intervene until the child has been removed, this can often be avoided by co-operating with DCYF.  Many times too overzealous neighbors will tell a story of what they seen out of anger and later calm the facts down and let the workers know what really happened. If you did nothing wrong than you will more than likely get through this very easily, otherwise they will give a chance to fix whatever problems that  may have been going on that day. Either way you stand to come out in a win win situation, many times if you were having any other problems local programs like DCYF will also be able to open the doors and help you in other ways.
