Child Protective Services Defense
Call Our Spring, TX, Family Law Attorneys Today
Texas Child Protective Services (CPS) is a branch of the Texas Health and
Human Services that investigates and intervenes with any reports of abuse
and neglect of children. If CPS is investigating your family for abuse
or neglect, you could lose custody of your kids. Our skilled family law
attorneys can help defend you in court.
Contact us at (281) 810-9760 to get started on your case as soon as possible.
CPS will only remove children from their household when it’s necessary
to protect them from abuse or neglect. They are extremely reluctant to
separate children from their families, so removal only happens when there
are no reasonable efforts that will keep children safe in their homes.
Whether or not CPS has a court order, they can remove your child from your
home if they feel your child is in immediate danger. If this happens,
a judge will schedule a hearing within 2 weeks after CPS removes a child.
You will need to complete a
Child Caregiver Resource Form, which will give CPS the names of at least 3 people, including grandparents
and other adult relatives, who might be able to provide care, emotional
support, or other support for the child while the parents receive services.
Termination of Parental Rights
Termination of your parental rights is a potential outcome of a CPS case.
If the court determines you are a danger to your children, they will formally
terminate your rights as a parent. Termination means the parent and child
no longer have a legal relationship. However, in order to terminate your
rights, a caseworker must consult with the attorney representing CPS against
you to ensure there are grounds for termination of your rights.
