Michigan CPS Defense Team
In Michigan, CPS is the division of the Department of Human Services (DHS) that investigates allegation of child abuse and neglect. Unfortunately, much of what CPS workers do is a matter of DHS policy. DHS policy is different from state law. The fact that DHS policy is binding on a CPS investigator does not make it binding on a parent. Parents have well recognized Constitutional rights regarding the raising of their children without unreasonable governmental interference. We can help you evaluate your rights and responsibilities. We can help you explore ways to keep your children in your home and the government out of your home.
Our top-flight legal defense team is ready to assist you in dealing with CPS and defending against criminal child abuse and child neglect allegations, including, but not limited to:
