Child Protective Services Attorney in San Antonio

Defending Parents & Standing up for Families

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services established Child Protective Services as a way to promote the welfare of children throughout the state. The agency is responsible for ensuring every child has a safe and stable home.

Though the agency’s intentions are in the right place, sometimes misunderstandings occur and innocent parents are left scrambling to defend themselves against accusations. If CPS has paid you a visit, it’s important that you understand your rights and arm yourself with a capable CPS attorney in San Antonio. At The Law Office of Derek S. Ritchie, PLLC, we represent parents who risk losing their children because of false allegations or a simple misunderstanding.

Call (210) 761-4943 or contact us online to request a free and confidential consultation with our family law.

Handling CPS Investigations with Care

If someone brings forth accusations of child abuse or neglect, CPS is obligated to investigate the allegations. Most of the time, a CPS representative will visit the child’s home and request access to enter the premises. Unless they have a warrant signed by a judge, you do not have to let them in. At this point, you’ll want to retain a trusted San Antonio CPS lawyer.

If a CPS representative does have a warrant and has the right to move forward with an investigation, we can defend you at every stage of the process. Attorney Derek S. Richie will make sure your rights are not violated and that the case we present in your defense is airtight and effective. If your children have been taken from your home, we can do everything in our power to bring them back home.
