Houston Child Abuse Attorney

Did child protective services take your children or grandchildren?

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS) is set up to receive reports from anyone in the community on cases of child abuse and child neglect Certain professionals, such as doctors, social workers and members of the clergy are even required by law to make a report any time that evidence of abuse surfaces. The agency will dispatch an investigator to your home in order to determine whether the report is founded upon fact and to take action to protect your children if necessary.

When you find the stability of your family threatened by rumors of child abuse, you need the representation of a knowledgeable Houston child protective services lawyer to help you prevent state intervention in your parenting or grandparenting. The Texas Family Code lists several actions and omissions that will be looked upon as abuse.

These include:

  • Causing or permitting Injuries to the mental or emotional health of the child which clearly impairs the child's growth, development or psychological functioning
  • Causing or allowing a physical injury that substantially harms the child, as well as placing the child in danger of such injury
  • Sexual abuse or failure to make reasonable attempts to prevent sexual abuse
  • Use of a controlled substance in a manner that could harm the child physically, mentally or emotionally

The court will take any evidence of child abuse seriously, and you will need to be prepared to effectively defend the case and disprove all allegations. Otherwise, your children will be removed to a foster family or placed up for adoption.
