What are some of the reasons why a parent should call Family Services during a divorce action?

Parents are advised to not call Family Services. Family Services doesn’t necessarily help a situation in a divorce case, and it’s best for a parent, if they’re concerned about their child having been abused in some way or neglected, to have the ability to go to Circuit Court and request a hearing on immediate danger and ask for emergency custody of their child and then schedule a longer hearing to really share what happened and have the court fashion a safe custody and parenting plan for their child without ever involving Family Services.
