New law may provide a child protection defense for parents

Certain situations arise in which a parent has few resources to effectively care for a child. A parent may then wish to temporarily place a child in the care of another person while he or she acquires the needed resources that will allow him or her to be able to care for the child again. Sometimes, leaving a child with another person could cause the parent to be charged with neglect or abandonment, and this can leave the parent in need of a child protection defense. A proposed law in another state raises the issue and provides a solution that may be useful for parents in the state of Texas. 

Parents mount child protection defense in crib case

A case of an allegedly caged child is sure to grab headlines. The real impacts of such a claim, that a parent would cage a child, can prove disastrous for a family if the assertions are inaccurate or untrue. A recent case involving a disabled child called for the parents to mount a child protection defense in order to have their child returned to their care. Families in Texas who may be facing false allegations of child abuse or neglect may be interested in the details of this particular news story. 

Facing abuse allegations? You need child protection defense

Allegations of child abuse are understandably serious, and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services -- DFPS -- will usually launch an investigation into such claims. This can be an understandably frightening period for families. Many are unsure of what child protection defense they might need or how to handle the possible removal of their children.

Make child protection defense a priority when facing charges

Nobody is perfect, and even the most careful of parents can make a mistake when it comes to their children. The law understandably treats alleged child abuse or neglect seriously, and this can put a tremendous amount of stress on the entire family. When Texas Child Protective Services -- CPS -- becomes involved, it is important to have an adequate child protection defense on your side.

Couple mounts child protection defense in medical marijuana case

As states across the nation continue to struggle with the issue of medical marijuana, the courts have been slow to keep pace with the rapid changes in how this drug is used, both for medical or recreational purposes. In many cases, parents in Texas and elsewhere have been faced with the risk of losing their children after authorities took issue with their use of the drug. For one family, assistance with their child protection defense could help them regain custody of their five children.
