Judge on the benchThis is my first post in a series of articles which will focus on how to navigate CPS charges against Las Vegas fathers. I consider it important to write on this topic due to the seriousness of CPS charges against a father. It can cause a change to the custody arrangement and have a significant impact on the relationship between a father and child. If one acts based on incorrect legal assumptions or creates conflict with the mother, then that can create potential issues while handling the charges. It is the goal of the following articles to provide information to help fathers best understand their situation. It is also my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of an attorney. If you require assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.

I will address several topics over my coming articles. Issues which I will analyze include:

  • Why Las Vegas fathers sometimes face false CPS allegations
  • What to expect when a CPS complaint has been made by the mother
  • Defending one’s self from CPS allegations

I have chosen to address these topics for multiple reasons. First, fathers should understand why they face false CPS accusations. A mother may make false allegations to CPS in order to gain an advantage in custody proceedings or to spite their child’s father. Second, fathers should know what to expect following a CPS complaint. This may include a visit from law enforcement and CPS investigators. A father may be subject to criminal charges and engaged in a custody dispute due to accusations. This leads to the third point which, if facing CPS accusations, then fathers should reach out to an attorney immediately. Counsel will assist in defending fathers from such accusations and ensure that your custody rights are protected.

In each of these articles I will stress that it is important to retain an attorney as soon as possible if you or a loved one are in need of legal assistance. Counsel will be able to advocate on your behalf and help navigate an investigation by law enforcement or CPS officials. It is important to take CPS charges seriously due to the potential negative impact it can have against a father. Failure to take CPS charges seriously or comply with an investigation can result in adverse consequences. For example, it may impact a father’s visitation schedule with their child or may provide a mother with arguments in a future court proceedings. Failure to take CPS charges seriously or comply with an investigation can result in adverse consequences such as loss of visitation rights for the father.
