Lansing CPS Appeals Attorney

Do Not Give Up the Fight. We Can Help You Appeal.

Having Children’s Protective Services (CPS) uphold a child abuse or neglect case against you can change your life forever. Not only is a child abuse allegation likely to follow you everywhere you go, but you can also face criminal child abuse or neglect charges. Authorities can use the evidence found by CPS against you in criminal court as well.

Even though it seems hopeless, there is no reason to give up. Courts can overturn child abuse petitions, and you can win criminal cases. With help from a qualified CPS appeals lawyer in Lansing, you can get your life back and move forward into a better future.

An appeal may be able to show:

  • That you did not receive proper representation in the first place
  • The court did not consider relevant facts of your case during the decision
  • CPS mishandled the investigation
  • CPS or the court overstepped their authority in the ruling on your case

You do not have much time to file an appeal after CPS notifies you of a decision, so be sure to act quickly. Mike Cronkright is not only a proven Lansing CPS attorney but has decades of experience in the criminal justice arena as well. We can make sure that your case receives the scrutiny it deserves.

The case is not closed simply because CPS says it is. Contact us today at (517) 325-0441 to start exploring your appeal options.

Appealing a Removal of Parental Rights

When CPS removes a child from your home, parents may still have viable legal options. Parental rights can be, and are, reinstated after an appeal. It does take time for the case to work through the court, but it is worth the effort to keep your family together.

Our attorneys have worked with thousands of parents, and we know the pain of losing custody of your child. However, the fight is far from over. At Cronkright Law, we love defending parents and keeping families together. We have the knowledge and skill to navigate everything from complex medical issues to the emotional impact these cases tend to have on both children and families. Most of all, we are ready to be a staunch and assertive advocate for you and your family both in and outside the courtroom.

Time is of the essence. Call us at (517) 325-0441 to start launching your appeal.
