Kalamazoo Lawyers for Allegations of Child Abuse

Western Michigan Child Protective Services Defense Attorney

Child Protective Services is authorized to act for the safety of children in Michigan. Unfortunately, at times parents feel the fundamental rights to their children are ignored when CPS is called and pays them a visit. If you receive a visit from child protection workers, you should hire a lawyer to protect your rights and assist you in the overall process.

At the law firm of Peter A. D' Angelo, PLC, we represent the interests of parents in Portage, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and other communities throughout Western Michigan. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Protecting Parental Rights in Michigan

A complaint from a former spouse, a teacher or even a neighbor can result in a visit to your home from child protection workers. If the agency workers find evidence of abuse or neglect, they may start an investigation and potentially remove your children from the home.

Depending on the case, the court may be asked to determine whether you will retain custody of your children. The court may also be required to determine whether your rights as a parent will be terminated for all time. If your parental rights are terminated, you will no longer have a right to contact your children. Your children can be placed for adoption in certain cases.

Once Child Protective Services gets involved, it is extremely important to contact a lawyer to determine what steps you need to take to protect your family. Those steps may include taking parenting classes, drug treatment or other programs.

When dealing with a government agency, it's important to have a lawyer protect your interests every step of the way.
