Learn the Laws of CYFD &
How to Fight It
New Mexico’s Children, Youth, and Families Department (CYFD) is responsible for investigating the neglect or abuse of children, alongside several other family services. On the whole, it is a group of hardworking individuals who are committed to the best interests of the children they serve. However, they must investigate any allegations of neglect or abuse brought to their attention, even if they turn out to be unfounded. If your family is under scrutiny of CYFD in New Mexico and you are uncertain how to proceed, our Albuquerque CYFD attorneys may be able to help.
It may seem easiest to simply cooperate fully and tell the truth, but even if the allegations are without merit, this could be a mistake. Seemingly harmless or innocuous comments could have a significant negative impact on the outcome of your case.
Instead of risking losing custody of your child, we strongly recommend seeking out skilled legal assistance from a NM CYFD lawyer if you've received a CYFD complaint. Our team can help you understand the allegations and fight them effectively.
