CPS: What You Need To Know To Protect Your Kids


The Beatles said it best: "all you need is love." 

As a parent you do your best to provide for your children and keep them safe because of the love you have for them. Unfortunately, Child Protective Services (CPS) doesn't agree with the premise that love is all you need. 

All it takes is one misunderstanding, one report from a concerned doctor or teacher, or one incident in the home to set off a chain of events that leads to a loving parent losing their child. 

This leaves parents feeling terrified, angry, frustrated and confused. We hope that if you find yourself in this situation you feel one more thing: determined. Combining determination with legal knowledge is the best way to resolve your CPS issues and put your family back together. 

First of all, it is important to determine why you are being investigated by CPS and why your parental rights are being threatened. In most cases, CPS catches wind of an alleged issue due to a teacher or a doctor - professionals who are legally obligated to report anything they perceive to be signs of abuse or neglect - making a report.

Second, you need to realize just how serious a CPS investigation is. You can lose your kids and face a prison sentence of up to 15 years if convicted of child abuse or neglect.

Third, you need to act quickly to protect your rights and arm yourself with proven legal representation. Not all attorneys have the skills and experience necessary to succeed in taking on CPS. If you have reason to believe you are under investigation by CPS, contact Schwartz Law Firm today for a strong defense of your parental rights and your family.
