CPS Investigation Process Begins with Home Visit
When CPS decides to look into a case, they typically begin with a home visit. It can be alarming to have a CPS worker show up at your front door announced. Do your best not to panic and politely stand up for your legal rights. Do not let them enter your home without a warrant and do not let them speak with your child alone unless they agree to record the entire interview. Your defense attorney will prepare you for interactions with CPS and speak on your behalf whenever possible. Limiting your interaction with caseworkers is a great way to put yourself on track to earning your desired outcome.
CPS Caseworker Did Not Follow Agency Rules
If CPS has already completed their investigation and you have received an unjust outcome, your lawyer may be able to contest the results on the grounds of caseworker competency. If the CPS worker did not follow the agency rules, twisted the facts of your case, or acted unjustly in any other way, the result of your case may have been skewed and therefore is deserving of a second look. A judge will review the evidence to ensure the best interest of the child is upheld. If you can demonstrate that you did not knowingly or willfully harm or neglect your child, your child will most likely be returned to your home.
Having a seasoned defense lawyer fighting on your behalf could mean the difference between proving your innocence and losing custody of your child. When so much is at stake, it is vital that you partner with a team that has worked on numerous CPS cases in the past. Always ask to see a lawyer’s proven track record before choosing to partner with him or her. The more experience working on cases similar to your own, the better.
