                       GALVESTON CPS LAWYER 

DON'T TALK TO CPS or the POLICE. Talk to your attorney. Child Protective Services, CPS, has the purpose of protecting children from neglect and abuse.  CPS agents often have good intentions, but are overworked, and  make mistakes.  Their actions sometimes lead to the removal of children from their parents, either on a temporary basis, or sometimes permanent when termination of parental rights is sought. Nor are all CPS worker equal.  It is almost always a highly-charged emotional situation and CPS agents sometimes get verbally abused by parents and other family members, many times undeserved. This treatment of CPS workers is wrong and almost never helps an already bad situation.  While they usually save children from the worst conditions, it is never a good situation.   It is always traumatic on the children.  When CPS makes a mistake or has been misinformed, it is all the worse.   All that stands between you and the loss of your children is your lawyer, the judge and jury.  The first thing you should do is seek an experienced attorney to represent you, to bring calm rational reason and investigation, to present your side and protect your rights before your family and case is damages further.  DON'T TALK TO CPS or POLICE. Even truthful answers can be used against you, as can a misstatement by you.  Anything you say will not help and may be used against you. DON'T let the police or CPS in your home unless they have a warrant or court order authorizing them to do so.  A custody or termination of parental rights battle is one of life's most important.  What in life is more important to us than our children.  Children are our future and we play a pivotal role in determining theirs.  It is a fight of love but still a major fight.  We can help you survive and navigate the mazed holocaust of your family, and protect your child's future.  When you need a well-trained-experienced and prepared veteran gladiator, sensitive to the delicate issues, championing the cause, a best LOYAL friend and advisor for the duration, call us, we are here to help.

CPS child custody and rights termination cases can arise in many different situations generally in divorces and other affecting the parent child relationship, which include adoptions, terminations, modifications and paternity cases, among others.
