Texas Child Protective Services Attorney

Once CPS has determined that a child’s welfare is in danger, the agency has the power to take away your kids and place them in foster care indefinitely. CPS can also initiate termination of your parental rights to permanently separate you from your children. On top of this, you may face criminal allegations of child abuse, child pornography, domestic violence, drug use or other unlawful activity. A conviction for any of these offenses will only give CPS more ammo to keep you away from your children.

Mr. Nelson is a board-certified* criminal defense lawyer who can fight the criminal charges, and he has long experience in family court proceedings and CPS defense. He will do everything in his power to clear your name and defend you against allegations that you are abusive to your child or unfit to be a parent.

CPS cases can last for many months or more than a year. Child Protective Services caseworkers will conduct a home study and subject you and your children to psychological evaluations in an effort to prove their case. Anything you say or do can be used against you.

We understand how scary and heartbreaking this is. Tad Nelson will fight to avoid removal and foster care placement, or work to get visits with your children if at all possible. We help you submit a family plan and present evidence that you are getting your life under control, and we represent you in court to argue why it is not in the best interests of your children to be separated from you.
