Texas Child Protective Services (CPS) serves to protect children from abuse in the home and also provides services to families and children in their homes. CPS is in charge of foster care with the hope of helping kids make the transition into adulthood and also places children in adoptive homes. In addition, CPS handles investigations of abuse or neglect and can remove a child from your home if someone makes a report against you.
CPS workers can be intimidating and aggressive. Being accused of child abuse, neglect or molestation of a child in Collin County can change your life forever. Parents are often investigated when a report is made by a school teacher, a counselor, a pastor or an ex-spouse. The best thing you can do to avoid the many harsh consequences of having CPS in your home is to retain counsel immediately.
Our lawyers can help to prevent the removal of a child from your care and can provide aggressive investigation defense. False accusations and charges of such behavior are more common than you might think. Perhaps a bitter spouse or ex made false accusations against you to CPS or maybe a nosy neighbor heard you having an argument and called the police without having proper cause to report child abuse or endangerment.
