How can DSS take someone to family court for child abuse when they have nothing to prove it, or to even suggest it is true, and is there anyway to prevent going to court?

Re: Child abuse
If you feel that you have been wrongfully accused of some crime or that civil proceedings have been brought against you maliciously or that DSS has abused the Family Court, then you can sue DSS and/or the DSS agent in Federal Court or state court for violation of your civil rights. You may be able to seek an injunction against DSS for violating your civil rights, but normally the Federal Court's do not intervene at that stage, provided the DSS procedure affords you due process of law.
