A: Meet with your attorney and prepare to present this to the court. Bring all of the impeaching evidence you have to help your attorney expose these lies along with copies of the prior court orders, if any, that prohibit hair dying. DCYF will also likely be interviewing you if they are following up on allegations of neglect and/or abuse. Have your evidence of the drinking / dirty urines also available to help the investigator and/or your attorney advocate for the best interest of your child.
