Protecting your parental rights when CPS intervenes

On Behalf of | Jan 25, 2024 | Child Protective Services

As a parent, when anything even slightly wrong involves your children, you are likely amassed with a wide range of emotions. Thus, when your parenting, the parenting of the other parent or the safety of your child are called into question, it can quickly turn into an overwhelming situation that can leave you panicked and filled with questions.

When Child Protective Services or CPS is involved in your family’s life, it can feel like everything will be looked at through a microscope and everything will be under scrutiny. This is a very understandable reaction; however, it is important to note that you have legal rights throughout this interaction and process.

CPS and your parental rights

At Bracamonte Law, PLLC, our law firm understands that no parent wants their parental rights to come into question. Thus, our focus is not only ensuring that parents understand their rights and options when it comes to CPS interventions, but we are also dedicated to safeguarding the parent-child relationship.

The best interests of the child are paramount when it comes to ensuring their health, safety and wellbeing are protected. When allegations of abuse or neglect are made, CPS steps in to determine if these allegations hold any weight. In these situations, parents should understand how best to defend themselves against these allegations.

Protecting you and your children

A lot is at stake when a CPS case is opened against you. As such, a legal professional can help you take the rights steps when it comes to protecting your rights and your relationship with your children.

Whether it is defending against allegations of abuse or neglect, preventing CPS from removing your children from the home, helping you recover your children from foster care, helping you illustrate to the court that you are working to keep custody, connecting you and your children to community resources and guide you through the process to resolve your matter quickly and efficiently as possible.

When CPS comes into the picture and keeping your children is at risk, it is important to take immediate steps to protect your parental rights. A legal professional can help you understand how to do that while also keeping your interests in mind.
