Juvenile Criminal Defense: When CPS Is Involved
It is stressful enough for a parent when their child is charged with a crime. This stress is compounded if Child Protective Services (CPS) becomes involved. This could result in a termination of parental rights, which is why it is important to have a skilled lawyer on your side who understands how to handle these sensitive matters effectively.

What Causes CPS To Become Involved In A Criminal Matter?
In many situations, CPS becomes involved because a concerned adult, such as a teacher, relative or mentor reaches out to them to investigate. If CPS becomes involved in a criminal matter involving a juvenile, this means that the parents will be placed under scrutiny as well. The assumption is that the child’s behavior may be related to not living in a productive environment. If the state believes that the child will be better off if they are removed from the home, it will take steps to do so.
Because a case involving CPS involves both the juvenile and parents, it is crucial to seek legal counsel who understands how to build an effective defense on both fronts. Sylvia Escobedo is dedicated to helping families through these difficult times while protecting their rights every step of the way.
