Legal Help In Texas Child Protective Services Cases

Raising children is the most important, yet subjective job an adult can have. What may seem like perfectly acceptable behavior to one set of parents may seem strange or even illegal to another. Unfortunately, there are also parents whose abhorrent conduct is simply not open to debate. Child Protective Services (CPS) was created to protect children in just these types of situations. In the best circumstances, CPS does wonderful things: It saves children from unsafe or unhealthy families.

However, because there are so many approaches to parenting, determining what is best for a child is not always so clear. Sometimes, acting under the best of intentions, Child Protective Services unnecessarily removes children from loving homes, dragging families through court, ruining otherwise healthy relationships, and harming all involved. This is not to say that CPS does not do good work.

Fully understanding the dynamics of any family situation is difficult, but after practicing family law for over four decades, being married for 40 years and successfully raising a child, I have a good idea where to start. I am attorney Leonard Roth, and I have been representing clients in family law matters in Houston, Texas, since 1972.

As a family law specialist as certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, you can count on me to protect your legal rights and family relationships. Send me an email to schedule an appointment to discuss your legal options.

When the CPS Is Involved With Your Family

If you are working through a family law case that involves Child Protective Services, you are probably already aware of the financial toll that the case is taking on your finances. CPS cases are often very expensive to resolve because there is almost no limit to CPS's resources, and they have no concept of the potential tragedy occurring due to their actions. When you contact me, I will help you understand your options and work with you to create a plan to meet and contest the Child Protective Services onslaught.

Although anger is a typical reaction when an outsider intrudes on your private life, it can also negatively affect your case. If CPS contacts you, call me at 713-965-7608. I work with clients, their case worker and supervisor to create solutions that address the concerns of all parties involved.
