A Caring Advocate In CPS Defense Cases
As a caring and compassionate foster parent, McNutt Law Firm PLLC understands the foster system and the Child Protective Services system on a personal level. She has adopted children that were part of the system. Her experience with CPS cases goes far beyond most attorneys and law firms. The issue of CPS defense is personal for our law firm.
When you are facing child endangerment or abuse allegations, you need an advocate to defend your rights and look out for your children’s interests.
Now, More Than Ever, You Need An Attorney In Your CPS Case
In Texas, the Child Protective Services department is going through a major overhaul. As the law evolves and the procedures change, it is more important than ever to have an attorney advocate for you.
At the McNutt Law Firm PLLC, we have extensive experience defending clients in CPS cases. We know that clients can sometimes feel “railroaded” by CPS. Having a lawyer on your side from the beginning can make a huge difference in the way your matter progresses. Foster care is not the place you want your children to end up. While many foster parents do a tremendous job, many do not. In addition, oversight is not always present to the degree it should be and some placements can be scary propositions.
CPS often overlooks kinship and family placements, which are preferable to outside placements. It may even make sense to pursue kinship/relative adoption. Keeping families together, whenever possible, should be the main objective. We advocate for this approach and take the extra steps to pursue this outcome.
