Tips for Dealing with CPS from Child Protection Services Attorneys

Informed & Compassionate Legal Counsel

Very little is as frightening as realizing you are about to be investigated by Children's Protective Services. We all know that CPS is supposed to protect children who are in need of advocacy due to their unsafe surroundings, but how are you supposed to respond when you know your child isn’t in need of that protection? Many parents feel threatened and see a danger to the welfare of their children when CPS comes knocking.

Therefore, you may be worried about how to prove your child is safe, protected, and loved under your care. You are most likely to be successful with the help of a determined and experienced child protective services attorney on your side. The lawyers at Cronkright Law will help you to be more than prepared for what’s to come from CPS and help you understand the issues in your case.

If your child has been injured, it is likely you will be under investigation, as school and hospital staff are required to report any injuries. If you find yourself constantly being questioned about the cause of your child’s injury, this may be an indication that a report to CPS is about to happen, and you should prepare yourself for the process you are about to go through.

Even with the tension of having police and CPS examining your family, you should remain polite with CPS. Despite how angered or upset you may be, it’s usually not helpful to be confrontational. Hiring an attorney quickly can go a long way towards decreasing the tension. In many instances, CPS workers don’t respond well to someone saying “no” to them; it is usually better that the attorney be the one to say "no" when needed.
