Houston Child Protective Services Lawyer

Sanctions Against Child Protective Services

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, acting through its Child Protective Services Division, is known to make mistakes. Unfortunately, these mistakes can potentially cause severe disruption in the long term stability and wellbeing of families, as well as a great deal of shame and embarrassment.

When parents or grandparents unjustly have their children taken away, it can be an emotionally traumatic experience for everyone involved, and the family may never fully recover from the episode. In the short term, the parents are likely to incur significant expenses in the battle to get their children back, as well as losing income from missing time at work.

When you have been the victim of bad faith actions on the part of Texas CPS, you need to speak with a Houston child protective services lawyer who has experience in successfully representing parents in your situation. You could easily lose the fight to recover custody of your children, and even in cases where the parents are successful the agency usually goes uncorrected for its mistakes. Your attorney can argue in court that the judge should officially sanction the department for its failure to properly investigate your situation, or for other breaches of good faith against you, such as CPS parental rights termination without valid evidence of child abuse or child neglect.
