Child Removal

An allegation of abuse, neglect, or other type of child endangerment can lead to an investigation by CPS. The investigation may result in the child being removed temporarily from your care. During this time, you are able to fight to retain custody of the child or children. We work to assist clients in gathering all the information needed to seek the reinstatement of your custodial rights.

Termination of Parental Rights

When CPS determines that the children should permanently be removed from your care, we can help. Our firm is dedicated to aggressively fighting the petition to terminate your parental rights filed by CPS or another individual or entity.

Our firm understands the stress a parent feels when they are told CPS wants to speak to them about their children. Parents feel defensive if someone threatens to call CPS. We can represent you in all aspects of the matter and ensure your rights, as well as those of your children's are protected.
