Standing Up To CPS

Texas CPS wields immense power. If someone calls and makes allegations of child abuse or neglect, the agency is empowered to investigate and take the children into foster care. A parent whose child has been taken away has the right to challenge the action. But attempting to represent yourself at a CPS hearing is not a smart idea. Your failure to present a convincing case could result in the loss of your parental rights.

Scott M. Brown & Associates will stand up for you and your rights. As experienced family law lawyers, we have represented many parents in hearings before CPS. In other cases, we have also been appointed by the court as amicus attorneys representing the child's interests. As a result, our firm commands an intimate understanding of CPS hearing procedures and the kinds of information that judges are looking for when they hear CPS cases.

False And Exaggerated Claims Of Child Abuse

Many CPS cases come about as the result of false or exaggerated claims made by a divorced parent or other disgruntled person. If unchallenged, this could result in the permanent removal of your children into foster care.

Scott M. Brown & Associates will review your case thoroughly. Whenever possible, we will present evidence in your favor and challenge the allegations made in the complaint. Our goal will be to preserve your parental rights — and return your children to your home.
