Bristol, CT asked in Family Law for Connecticut

Q: Hi, school psychologist in Bristol CT reported my children to DCF for neglect of medical care.

The information provided to DCF by the psychologist is false in that there has been no neglect. My wife has email correspondence from the school and DR’s offices of continued care for my daughters issue over the past several months, There is also false information in the report by the school psychologist. This is causing extreme unnecessary stress on my family, and children. Do I have any options to pursue legal matters in this situation? I spoke with the DCF representative assigned to my case today, she indicated there is clear miscommunication on part of the school and also thru her interview process inconsistent information has been provided to her. One example was that 1 school Admin has told the DCF rep that she has never seen me in a meeting (only my wife), while another school admin stated that they have seen me in meetings, which is the correct information. I have attended most, if not all of the meetings at school pertaining to my daughters health concerns in school.
