QUESTION: I have this guy friend who has a few kids. He is undocumented and his children’s mother will not let him see his kids. The children are now being physically abused by her. What can he do about this, if anything?
ATTORNEY CASTILLO’S ADVICE: If your friend’s children are being abused, he should contact the Department of Children and Families (formerly DSS) and make a formal report.
Regardless of your friend’s immigration status, he has rights as a father and should file a complaint for visitation/custody/support of his children in the Probate Court in his county. If he needs assistance in filing a complaint he should contact a family law attorney in his area.
