Houston Child Protective Services Lawyer
Sanctions Against Child Protective Services
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.
