You hire a Virginia attorney who understands and who has real case experience with defending folks such as yourselves against this quite often overreaching and out of touch bureaucracy which is part of the Virginia Department of Social Services (DSS) and which too often relies upon tips from unreliable sources in carrying out its designated mission which ostensibly is to protect helpless children who are allegedly being abused and/or neglected within their residential environments.
