Child Protective Services
REPRESENTING YOU IN CPS CASES
When a caseworker from the Texas Child Protective Services visits you and your family, it is important to act quickly. The more expeditiously you act in finding an attorney, the less time you will spend wondering about your rights. To speak to someone about your options during an investigation, contact us at the Law Offices of Mary Ann Beaty, P.C., in Dallas, Texas.
Our firm represents parents in these cases and also serves the children as a guardian ad litem. It is important to speak to us as soon as possible and before you attend an agency hearing concerning:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child neglect
- Emotional and physical child abuse
- Out of home and foster care placement
Allegations of parental neglect and abuse have serious consequences. Protective services will seek to remove your child from your home when they suspect drug or alcohol abuse, child abuse or neglect, lack of supervision, or lack of medical or emotional care that has occurred and endangers your child. Parents often have reasonable explanations to counter these allegations. You need a Dallas family lawyer to get the help you need to care for your child.
PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS
Often, Texas Child Protective Services will become involved with your family when you least expect it. It is important to contact us, even if you just suspect that protective services is making allegations against you. Many times allegations can be challenged so the child is not removed from the parent’s home. The earlier you get a board-certified family law attorney involved, the more we can do to advocate for your rights and make recommendations for agencies and providers to aid you in your case and that of your child.
With so many procedural steps required to challenge these serious allegations, it is important that you understand the process fully. We will keep you informed and involved in the decision making process and hold Texas Child Protective Services to deadlines that they set. In addition, we will make sure you have all the necessary information and access to comply with the conditions the agency places on you. Rest assured we will stay on top of the process on your behalf.
