How Do I Fight Back Against CPS?

There are legal ways to fight back against the CPS or a court order. We understand that it is imperative to resolve these matters quickly to have your child returned. Without proper guidance, you could suffer serious consequences. The firm is committed to providing in-depth representation to protect clients’ rights. Ellen will contact CPS to obtain all essential information and investigate the situation to see why and how CPS got involved.

Her thorough representation can help prevent CPS from:

  • Taking the child out of your home
  • Terminating your parental rights
  • Placing the child in foster care

Child Protective Services has discretion over your child’s situation. We tailor our representation to ensure that the best interests of the child are also addressed. We understand the restrictions you may be facing and will provide effective guidance. Ellen is dedicated to navigating you and your family through your CPS case.
