Child Abuse Charges and CPS in Michigan

When a person faces child abuse or neglect related charges in Michigan, police often notify Child Protective Services, who will likely conduct their own investigation into your home during an already stressful time. In addition to alleged physical or mental abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect accusations, CPS investigation can result from drug crime charges, DUI with a child in the vehicle, or any other criminal charge that could lead investigators to assume your home may not be safe for children.

While CPS plays an important role in protecting children, they don’t always take into account the potential damage that tearing apart a family can have, especially when charges have yet to be conclusively proven, or when a defendant is clearly innocent. Child abuse charges can result in connection with a number of ulterior motives, including during fierce custody battles, and it is critical that families have an objective legal advocate on their side to walk them through what to say and do to ensure a fair and thorough investigation takes place.

Why Is Child Protective Services Involved in My Case?

Though many cases involving CPS also involve serious criminal charges, some Child Protective Services investigations carry on even after charges have been dropped or dismissed, or in some cases when a criminal investigation occurs but charges are never laid. CPS enters cases in attempts to take away the parental rights of the accused, and it is critical to protect your family against this damaging intrusion by working with an experienced defense lawyer. We know how evidence and testimony can be warped or misunderstood, and how suggestion can affect what children say to teachers, police, or CPS agents. In addition, we are familiar with some of the common signs to watch out for in criminal cases that indicate a person is actually innocent and will seek to expose all possible evidence so that you are able to place doubt in a jury’s mind at trial while also guarding against CPS review.
