If your family is contacted by Child Protective Services (CPS), we suggest the following:
- Do not let the CPS workers into your home. The only legal ways into your home are:
- in emergency situations (immediate and obvious danger to life or limb)
- with your permission
- with a search warrant.
- write down everything that occurred
- call THSC Association at (806) 744-4441 and your attorney.
THSC sponsors continuing legal education seminars in which attorneys are trained by other attorneys with expertise in defending families in CPS cases. This list of attorneys can be made available to any family faced with a CPS investigation.
THSC members are eligible for free representation by an attorney who has taken our continuing legal education seminar on defending families in CPS cases. Join THSC today to secure this benefit for your family.
