Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry

If you or a loved one is accused of child abuse or neglect, you’ll need the help of an experienced CPS defense attorney to fight back. Receiving a guilty verdict may result in life-altering consequences, such as being placed on the Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry. In order to clear your name and protect your parental rights, you’ll have to prove that you did not mistreat your child in any way. You cannot wait for CPS officers to attempt to uncover the truth. The social worker investigating your case will assume you’re guilty unless proven innocent, making it difficult to get them to back off unless you hire a competent attorney.

If you’re up against abuse or neglect claims, give the attorneys at Grabel & Associates a call. Our lawyers understand what it takes to be successful in cases involving CPS. When the future of your family is on the line, you want Michigan’s brightest legal minds working on your behalf. Don’t wait another minute. Pick up the phone and connect with the Grabel & Associates team today.

Understanding Your Legal Rights in CPS Cases

One of the most important steps you can take in your case is learning about your legal rights. When you are convicted of child abuse, you have the right to due process. This means that you will be notified that your name is going to be placed on Central Registry. You also have a right to understand why you’re being placed on Central Registry and who will have access to this information. If you believe that your name should not be placed on Central Registry, your attorney will explore your options and help you fight back. The team at Grabel & Associates knows how to help you avoid placement on Central Registry, and we will do everything in our power to clear your name. The first step in battling for your future is connecting with a lawyer from our talented defense team.
