Getting To The Facts Following Child Abuse Allegations
Child Protective Services (CPS) investigates allegations of child neglect and abuse for the state of Texas. While the organization often does good work by removing children from the home of an abusive parent or foster parent, they do make mistakes.
These can be a matter of overstepping their jurisdiction, or it can be a situation where they are acting on false information provided by an angry ex-spouse, or a teacher who noticed bruises on your child’s arm. Perhaps they claim it involves a parent’s alleged substance abuse problem. Whether you are a dad, mom or a foster parent, these allegations must be taken seriously or you risk losing custody of your children.
A Commitment To Keeping Families Together
The Law Office of Philip W. Moore, Jr., provides experienced and knowledgeable representation. We understand the frustration and fear that a parent feels when CPS knocks on your door. Attorney Philip W. Moore, Jr., often handles cases involving the CPS and other child custody issues. He knows what they can and cannot do, and often goes to court to aggressively defend accusations where good parents are wrongly accused of child abuse.
We are not here to judge you as a person; we are here to help you as a parent to keep what is most important. We also understand that the circumstances of each case are as unique as the people involved. Cases we handle often involve such allegations as:
- Parental drug abuse or criminal charges
- Child abuse or neglect
- Sexual abuse or statutory rape
- Child pornography
Aggressive Protection Of Your Parental Rights
It is important to remember that parents and foster parents are innocent until proven guilty. If the CPS contacts you or comes to your door, it is important to speak with an experienced family law lawyer who handles these types of cases before you speak to them. Moreover, we find that it is often necessary and desirable to go to court to resolve these issues and clear clients’ names of false accusations that can follow them for years. Attorney Philip W. Moore, Jr., will go through this entire process with you, protecting your individual and parental rights to the full extent of the law.
