CPS Adoption Representation in Houston

Have your children been placed up for adoption by CPS?

After your children have been taken from you by an agent of the Texas Departnemt of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS), the agency will attempt to get you to comply with its demands.

When the division believes that there are conditions that cannot be resolved, or if you refuse to comply with their requirements, they will typically suggest to the court that a CPS parental rights termination is suitable for the situation. If the judge grants the request and terminates your legal rights as a parent, your children will next be placed for adoption by another set of parents.

It is vital for you to get started on a strategy to prevent this outcome as early as possible, and the first step is to speak with an experienced Houston child protective services lawyer from our firm who can educate you about your rights as a parent or grandparent.

Your attorney will examine the evidence against you to determine the best way to challenge the accusations of child abuse and child neglect that led to this situation. Each case is unique and requires careful preparation, but by acting fast your chances of successfully blocking the adoption of your children and regaining your parental rights will be greatly improved.
