CPS FAQs

A CPS worker has called me and wants to meet with me to talk about my children. What do I do?

You need to cooperate. If you don’t cooperate, CPS will infer that you are attempting to hide something. Try to get some information from CPS about what they wish to discuss with you.

Chances are, you probably know why they want to talk to you.

Consult a lawyer and have legal counsel with you when you are interviewed. If you do not have time to obtain counsel and must participate in the interview, follow these guidelines.

  1. Be polite and helpful
  2. Show concern for your children
  3. Listen more than you speak
  4. Ask for exact information from CPS, they will often use phrases such as “we have concerns” or “it has been alleged” or “we believe”
  5. DO NOT GUESS about your answers to any CPS questions
  6. DO NOT GUESS about what other people knew or didn’t know
  7. DO NOT SAY the following, “he would never do such a thing” “I don’t believe that happened” “my child is telling a lie”
  8. Be able to clearly explain how your home is a safe home for your children
  9. Be able to provide positive references who have frequent contact with you and your children
  10. Do not lose your temper
  11. At the end of the conversation ask the CPS worker to summarize her discussion with you, her findings, any actions she is considering taking and her reasons for taking those actions.

Do I need to have an attorney with me whenever I meet with CPS?

CPS workers do not like lawyers. Unfortunately, a lawyer who is not familiar with CPS and takes the wrong approach in dealing with CPS may do you more harm than good. An experienced CPS lawyer can help to clarify the issues, present your case in a positive manner, and minimize the risk of your children being taken into foster care.

CPS wants me to bring my children to their offices for a meeting. What should I do?

This is a setup. NEVER, EVER take your children to CPS offices without your lawyer right beside you. This tactic is used by CPS to get you to surrender the children to them at their offices instead of them going to the effort of removing the children from your home. To summarize, take your children with you to CPS and chances are you’ll be going home alone.

CPS wants me to sign a “Safety Plan” or they are going to take my children into foster care. What should I do?

A Safety Plan tells you that you have to follow certain rules to keep your children with you in the home. For instance, in many cases, the Safety Plan will instruct you to remove an alleged abuser from your home, or to clean your home, or to participate in counseling.

You must ask yourself whether you can follow the Safety Plan – if you can’t then you are at risk of having your children removed. You must make sure that both you and CPS understand what exactly the Safety Plan tells you to do or not do. Many children are removed each year because CPS interpreted the Safety Plan differently than the parent did.

Ask CPS when does the Safety Plan expire. If no expiration date is given, then you are forever at risk of having your children removed. As always, try to review the Safety Plan with a lawyer before you sign it.

CPS wants me to separate from my husband or wife and to keep my children away from him/her. What should I do?

Just do it. CPS always believes that sexual abuse has occurred, no matter what the facts and logic suggest, and that children always know what they are talking about. The problem is that if you question any of the facts, your child will be out of your home. It is a difficult situation, but you must ALWAYS choose your child over your spouse.

CPS has done an “Emergency Removal” and placed my children into foster care. What should I do?

Find out as much as you can about why the children were taken into foster care. Ask questions, but volunteer little information at this point. Be helpful. Tell the CPS worker what your child likes and doesn’t like, and inform her of any medications your child might be taking or other special needs he or she might have. Ask for a visit with your child. Typically, you will get a one hour visit one time a week.

Do not threaten the CPS worker and try not to show too much anger. If the CPS worker feels threatened by you or senses that you are “unstable” it will only hurt your chances of getting your child home. Suggest relatives who would be willing to have temporary possession of your child. Try to make arrangements to get your child some of his toys, clothing, and other possessions that will make him feel more secure while in foster care.

I received legal papers telling me I have a court hearing to determine temporary custody of my children. What should I do?

Time is critical. You are going to have a Court hearing within 14 days of the date your child was removed from your possession. At the hearing, the Court will determine whether there is a continuing danger to your child in your home. CPS will have their investigators, lay witnesses, doctors and police officers ready to testify.

Who will testify on your behalf? Who will present your case to the Court? Do you know how to cross-examine a witness or how to object to improper testimony? You need legal representation. If you lack time to hire an attorney, ask the Judge for an additional two weeks to hire one. Your child will have to stay in foster care, but many times it is better to wait an additional two weeks and be truly prepared for court rather than rushing in unprepared.

Several things can happen at the initial or “14 day hearing.” Your child can be returned to your care (this rarely happens); CPS can take steps to determine whether a relative would be able to care for the child, or your child can continue in foster care for a period of at least 60 days. A CPS case can be won or lost at this point.

Without aggressive representation at the 14 day hearing, there is a very real chance that your child will spend months in foster care – – possibly without justification.

CPS is telling me my children have been sexually abused. What should I do?

Please do not say, “I don’t believe it” or “that’s not true” or “she tells stories” or anything that gives CPS the thought that you don’t believe sexual abuse has occurred. Show genuine concern. Ask, “what can I do to make sure I am providing my child with a safe home?”

Ask the CPS worker questions. Seek detailed answers. Who is the alleged abuser? When did the abuse occur? How many times has the abuse occurred? Exactly what did occur? (You need to get over your embarrassment and ask for graphic details about what happened). You must ask yourself if you knew of the sexual abuse or had any hint that it was taking place. What has your child told CPS?

Unless you convince CPS that you knew nothing about the sexual abuse and that you are able to protect the child from the abuser, your child is going to be placed outside your home.

CPS is telling me my children have been neglected. What should I do?

“Neglect” means different things to different people. Ask questions. Seek specific answers. Try to get CPS to agree to leave the children with you while you participate in parenting classes or other services CPS recommends. If your house is dirty, clean it. If it’s still dirty after you clean, move. You may have to agree to do other things like place the children in daycare, or change your work hours. Remember, you are doing these things to keep your children with you.

CPS is telling me my children have been physically abused. What should I do?

Physical abuse usually occurs in one of two instances: 

1.  The case of the baby who is shaken or beaten by an adult. Cases involving injuries babies and young children are the most difficult mainly because the victim is unable to speak. You need to convince CPS that you didn’t injure your child and that your home is safe. This is very difficult. CPS wants to know who injured the child and until someone comes forward with an explanation, the child is not going home. Do not make up stories, for instance, “he rolled off the bed.” Do not cover-up if you know who hurt the child — unless the person you are protecting is more important to you than your child. Your attorney may suggest you take a lie-detector test. You must attempt to obtain legal counsel. 

2.  The case of improper physical discipline of a child.  In the case of improper discipline, you have a chance of keeping your child at home, but you are going to have to participate in parenting classes and counseling. Of course, it will depend too on the type of injuries sustained by the child and if there appears to be a long-standing pattern of improper physical discipline — for example the use of extension cords to administer spankings is abuse and may result in removal of the child.

CPS tells me I don’t need a lawyer at the emergency court hearing. Is this true?

You need a lawyer. CPS is represented by the District Attorney. Your children will have their own attorney. You will not be successful representing yourself. Also, don’t fall for the line, “this is only temporary.” Many a termination case starts with such a representation.

I am embarrassed to tell my family about my CPS case. What should I do?

If your family can help you in any way, financial, emotional, or as a temporary placement for your children, tell them. A CPS case could be the most serious legal matter in your life. It is no time to “go it alone.” Show CPS that you come from a good family and that you have their support — it will make a difference.

CPS wants me to take a drug test. What should I do?

You know whether you will pass. If you will pass, sure, take the test. If you know you won’t pass, consult your lawyer. Depending on the circumstances, you may want to refuse to take the test, or admit to your drug usage. These are critical decisions and you need a professional to advise you.

The main thing is to get clean! If you are using illegal drugs, find someone in your family to care for the children while you go through a inpatient program. The longer you remain in denial about your problem, the worse things will get.

Remember, in a CPS case, you have one year to get your act together. It’s better to start early rather than waiting until you are out of time to save your family.

CPS has my children. Will I ever get them back?

It depends. You have a year to prove yourself to CPS. You need to form a success strategy with your lawyer. This will include taking steps to improve you life and then showing CPS what you have done. You will have to persuade the child’s lawyer that the child belongs with you. You will attempt to discredit as much of the CPS case as possible.

You have to visit each and every week. You have to be appropriate with your child in the visits. You have to INSPIRE CONFIDENCE in the people who are evaluating you as a parent. As a last resort, you may have to prepare for trial — this is both an expensive and uncertain endeavor.

CPS wants me to do a “Service Plan.” What does this mean?

The Service Plan consists of a list of things for you to do in order to have any hope of getting your children home. But, understand that the Service Plan is not a contract and CPS doesn’t have to return your children just because you completed your service plan.

Typically, you will be asked to take a psychological evaluation, do counseling and parenting classes. You may also be asked to take random drug tests, participate in anger management, or sex offender’s counseling.

What is a “Guardian Ad Litem?”

The Guardian Ad Litem is an attorney who has been appointed by the Court to make an independent recommendation to the Court about what arrangement will be in your child’s best interest. You will want to make sure the ad litem is doing his or her job and not merely following CPS recommendations. You will want to work to obtain a favorable recommendation from the ad litem.

Will the Court appoint me an attorney if I cannot afford to hire one?

The answer is “NO.” Now, having said that, if you are indigent and CPS files suit to terminate your parent-child relationship, you will be appointed a lawyer. But the point is, you should never wait until you are in such a bad situation to find legal help.

When CPS files to terminate you, they have had around 6 months to build their case against you and there is little your court-appointed attorney can do to erase the damage of what has already happened during the case.

Finally, the legal services organizations do not take CPS cases either because they are so specialized and time-consuming.

Mr Housewirth was kind and understanding about the situation I am currently dealing with, he seems very honest and forthcoming, but humble which is a rarity in this field. I will be using him again when the time comes to do so.
Greg Housewirth represented me in my divorce and then again later for several modification issues involving my children. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Housewirth to anyone dealing with a family law situation. He is extremely knowledgeable, very professional and honest. My questions and concerns (and I had a lot of them!) were always promptly answered with patience and courtesy. Each time I had to appear for court I felt he had fully prepared me. He was also immensely considerate with billing and payment options, and anyone who has been through divorce and/or custody issues knows that can be a burden all in itself. I know that I could not have been better represented!

Greg has been a life saver. I was so intimidated by CPS and felt like I could simply not make myself heard by CPS or anyone else...that was until I hired Greg Housewirth. He immediately pulled the parties together and stood by my side through the process. He was able to meet with CPS, drill down to the truth and have my finding overturned. He has an excellent team and his Paralegal was also a HUGE help. I am with my kids and my reputation is intact. Hiring Greg was the best decision I made during this trying and scary time.

I used to include Attorneys and Lawyers in the category of "Licensed Professionals you shouldn't trust," until I met and hired Greg Housewirth with Schreier & Housewirth Family Law.. I first met with Greg for a consultation after the ongoing, for over two years, custody case between my son's mother and I was abruptly interrupted and the focus redirected when CPS got involved. I knew then it was time to graduate from Pro Se representation to hiring an experienced and reputable Attorney who specialized in CPS cases. I knew nothing about CPS and was unaware to who and what the CPS is and naive to the impact the CPS can have once part of a case. Greg shot straight with me from the beginning.

Going into the process of adopting our three children was daunting and our case was fairly complex. Working with Greg made the process clear and seamless. He took the time to explain each step of the process, clarifying and offering realistic expectations along the way. Our family is so thankful we worked with him and are now at the end of our adoption journey. Highly recommend.

CPS can and will be one of the most horrifying experiences you will have in your life time. Often cases are misrepresented with prejudice and bias judgements. Today, I would not be the person that I am if I had not met Holly Schreier. Holly was direct, but yet caring, she had no formed opinions. She got to know my heart and love and most of all that the court needed to see a true picture of who I really was. Holly without a shadow of a doubt, has my recommendations for any mother or grandparents who has it in their heart to raise their children. My babies are the happiest I have ever seen them. Thank you Holly Schreier for saving my family. I will always remember you for your warmth and services. I would not hesitate one minute to refer this law office to handle family matters.
Mr. Housewirth was very professional as well as personable, he made me feel at ease at a time when I needed it. I would highly recommend him and would definitely call on him again if the need arose.
I needed a consultation, started googling and found they guys.. I'm from AZ they still assisted me and the information eased my mind, and was very helpful.

Most terrible lawyer ever. My 3 year old would be a better lawyer than he is. I hired this guy for my case and it was all a waste of money. Firstly, this guy NEVER communicates. You have to call or email a hundred times before he replies once. Secondly, this guy does not remember his clients nor does he cares. It's like he just wants the money and wants you to lose. If you call him, he doesn't even remember who you are. He has to go looking for folders to remember what your case is all about. Thirdly, this guy is not aggresive , I mean he is weak. You cant win any case with him, better still represent yourself. He is not willing to fight for you. He just wants the easiest way out. All the documents and proof I send to him, he didnt check one of them until court date. He doesn't even care about them..HE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT HIS CLIENTS VICTORY. It's like he has a personal problem or something affecting him because even the way he talks is so lackadaisical. You will never see him in person to discuss face to face. He always avoids this. You will be left in the dark with him. I had to fire him. Now, if you want to LOSE your case, Hire him. Yes, dont say I'm not your client. This is Esther.

Like most people who hire an attorney, it was going through a highly emotional and extremely difficult point in life dealing with my child’s father. I asked for referrals from a Tarrant County single mom group on Facebook, and a friend suggested Schrier & Housewirth. I originally had Kendall Goetz as my attorney in September 2017. She instantly filed with the Court on my behalf. I was very pleased. After some attempts at negotiating, a court date was set for November 2017. At court, we agreed to go to mediation. It took 7 months to get mediation scheduled, as opposing counsel would not cooperate. Not a good sign. Days before mediation, my attorney left the firm. I thought to myself, that’s very odd but it happens. The firm then scrambled to try and pick up the pieces. I was asked to come in on a Saturday to “catch them up “and meet with Mr. Housewirth to discuss my casw Luckily, when I left mediation I had a mediated settlement agreement that I felt covered all the issues where I was concerned for the safety of my child as there had been several emergency calls involving police, CPS, and my child’s father refusing to return the child to me, leading up to this point. Opposing counsel was supposed to prepare the final order after mediation. It took 6 months before an order was produced. There were several things left unclear and not worded correctly to accurately reflect what was agreed to at mediation. Before corrections could be requested, the paralegal AND associate attorney both left Schreier & Housewirth, leaving me with just Mr. Housewirth. At this point, it was clear there was something terribly wrong with this firm, for that many employees to up and leave in such a short amount of time. I repeatedly called, emailed, and went to the office in person to beg Mr. Housewirth to request opposing counsel revise the order or that Mr. Housewirth draft an order himself that was in compliance with the mediated settlement agreement. I also asked that Mr. Housewirth apply for a protective order on my behalf as my child’s father was continuing to misbehave. He did no such thing. Finally, the Attorney General got involved because my child’s father was grossly delinquent in support. Once the Attorney General filed an intervention, then opposing counsel sprung into action and set a hearing to have the court sign the final order. I continued to beg Mr. Housewirth to please be prepared, to please help me get a protection order, and the final orders corrected ASAP. Days before the hearing I went to the office and asked to view the proposed order that would be presented to the Court. I spent over an hour going through each paragraph specifically with my corrections. The morning of the court hearing, Greg Housewirth was unprepared, scatter brained, and told me he only had 15 minutes to handle my case. He “had to go.” There were two very important parts of the order that needed to be clarified before entry with the court. Opposing counsel agreed to those two revisions! Finally something went my way! Everyone signed off on the order, the court signed, and we all went on our way. Then, I received a emailed copy of the order signed by the court. It did NOT have those two clarifications included. It has been 107 days since the order was signed. I have sent 17 emails to Schreier & Housewirth, called 11 times, and went to the office in person 6 times (one of which the new paralegal was there but had the door locked, and refused to turn around and look at me standing at the door/windows), and I have had NO RESPONSE and NO EFFORT TO CORRECT THE ORDER. I would not recommend this firm to anyone. The way this firm and Mr. Housewirth operate, it is beyond me how he is still in business.

I called Mr. Housewirth for a modification of child custody/visitation. During our phone consultation he wasn’t over barring, pushing for things that I did not need nor did he make me feel he was just out to get money. He made me feel very at ease. He let me ask as many questions as needed and answered each and every one of my questions with detail and true concern for my situation. Based off his in depth responses and explanations he seems to be very knowledgeable in his field. By no means did I feel that I was just another potential client to him. I did not feel that he was telling me whatever he felt I needed to hear. I felt he was very open and honest with me through out the entire conversation. I will certainly use Mr. Housewirth when/if I need legal council.
Fantastically helpful and knowledgeable, easily approachable, and considerate. Greg is not just knowledgeable about the law, but he is also a kind and decent person to work with.

When my family encountered cps at our door. We were confused, scared and a tremendous fealing of helplessness burdened us. We didnt know what we were getting ourselves into but thank god the attorneys at Schreier & Housewirth did. As soon as we hired them a sense of relief overcame all of us. They were knowledgable and sufficient. Every time i had court he was way ahead of their next move and Greg Housewirth made sure I didnt lose my rights to my child. Evan though there was no lack of effort coming from cps, he continued to stick to what he knew was right while complying with what the law would allow. If I ever have another family law situation Schreier & Housewirth will always be the law office I call. I will be grateful to them as long as I live. Thank You to everyone at Schreier & Housewirth for staying by my side during one of the most difficult times of my life. I totally recommend this law office for any type of family law matter!!
September 2012 a twelve year relationship began to come to an end. I was only 23 with two beautiful little boys. My ex had a large controlling and violent temper that could no longer be handled by me. You think it would have been a given that things would have been quick in court, but my ex came on strong and tried to play daddy of the year for court when it first began. In January of 2013 I was on a hunt to get some legal advice and find out how I can gain custody of my children. I contacted multiple lawyers and many were very rude, some never responded back, and some gave me a automated response, but Greg I got a personal email from him sharing his views and asked me to come in to talk. When I first went to meet with Greg I was a mess. My ex had my two boys two in a half hours away from me and made my life tremendously hard when it came to see them, my ex also called CPS on me three time in less than a years span. Greg told me how to handle CPS, and to not let them intimidate me. My ex had a goal to keep my children from me, and his plan was to flee the state and never let me see my children again. Greg helped me put a stop to that! We had multiple court dates and it sometime seemed never ending, but the continuous support from Greg and his team helped through all the nerve wrecking court dates. Greg did a great job presenting me as a mother and how the best interest of the children would be in my care, but I cannot tell you how amazing Greg's approach in court is. As my ex's second lawyer tried to use a strong and aggressive tactic to make me look wrong or bad, Greg left it up to my ex to show his true colors in court. Everything we did in the court room pertained to hard evidence and facts, and things we could not show proof of Greg as mention took the route of letting my ex shine the light he did want on himself. After a year and a half of numerous court dates, appeals, and all my trial which was August of 2014 quickly came to an end just about a week ago. The man that came in strong ready to take me down didn't even show for final trial. My children cannot be more happier to know that they get to stay with their mother, and no longer have to be let down by their father. It was almost bitter sweet saying goodbye at the court house to Greg and Kelly, as they have been so amazing through this whole thing. I am beyond blessed by the work that was carried out for my family and there is no one else I would ever go to or send any one to but Greg. His many years of being a lawyer and in the system of law show when he takes your case on. If you are looking for someone that will prepare you for court, be honest with you when it comes to your case, someone that is reliable! There is not one better in Tarrant County than Greg. Heck even if your not in Tarrant County he is worth the drive to see. Thank you Greg and all of the team for all you have done for me!

Had a very thorough yet quick conversation over the phone with an attorney here at the firm. Very straight to the point and friendly without making me feel dumb. Discussed possibly options I have and what may be the best route to follow without any pressure.
I called Mr. Housewirth for a modification of child custody/visitation. During our phone consultation he wasn’t over barring, pushing for things that I did not need nor did he make me feel he was just out to get money. He made me feel very at ease. He let me ask as many questions as needed and answered each and every one of my questions with detail and true concern for my situation. Based off his in depth responses and explanations he seems to be very knowledgeable in his field. By no means did I feel that I was just another potential client to him. I did not feel that he was telling me whatever he felt I needed to hear. I felt he was very open and honest with me through out the entire conversation. I will certainly use Mr. Housewirth when/if I need legal council.
Great job!
Greg got the children home! He expertly guided us through our frustrations of a system that isn’t always fair, but held everyone’s feet to the fire, and got the only acceptable results .... the children home. He worked so hard for us! Thank you times a million!!! Highly recommended !

Just finished my divorce this morning with Greg as my lawyer and he was very helpful. Him and his staff are wonderful and always listened when I came in or called for any questions. Being young, I was afraid of not being taken seriously but Greg was very prompt on getting the job done. He helped me figure out the custody situation with my daughter so it was best for her & I. Also, don't be afraid to reach out to them because they will help you every time. The one thing with Housewirth Family Law is that it is okay to reach out to them & ask them to know how things are going and where your case stands. I am thankful to have have my uncontested divorce case done and finished in under 3 months time. Thank you Schreier and Housewirth Family Law!
September 2012 a twelve year relationship began to come to an end. I was only 23 with two beautiful little boys. My ex had a large controlling and violent temper that could no longer be handled by me.

Greg was fantastic! He called me back within 2-3 minutes of my initial inquiry and concisely answered all of my questions. He even recommend that at this time I should continue negotiations on my own until I feel i have gotten in over my head. How phenomenal is that that an attorney would be so gracious as to honestly tell me that the costs of his services were not warranted at this time. Even if he hadn't have been so honest his fees are extremely reasonable and I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone requiring legal assistance! Thanks Greg!
I have been working with Holly Schreier and Greg Housewirth for a little over a month now, and I have to say that I am highly impressed with their dedication to their practice, and their clients. Greg and Holly take their clients' time very seriously, and strongly believe in providing the best quality service in the smallest amount of time possible, so as to save their clients money and unnecessary losses in time. They both have been practicing for quite some time, so are truly experts in their field, and are even leaned on by the court system to be leads in cases when necessary. If you need family law services of any kind, I highly recommend consulting with them, as you will not be disappointed.
I didn't get to use their services my circumstances ended up changing but they called to check back up on me and I think that was very sweet.

Communication was key for and they were great at giving me real time updates on where everything stood with my case. Very friendly staff and it was nice getting to know the entire office. If I had questions, the staff made it very easy to understand. I highly recommend if you are looking for a professional, friendly, and hard working attorney.
My ex and I came to Greg after doing extensive research on divorce attorney's in Tarrant County. Every one of the reviews I read have been spot on, Greg is an absolute pleasure to work with. He had us both in his office to discuss our situation which was very amicable and based on that, recommended the best course of action. He is very knowledgeable in his field and made us both feel relaxed and comfortable while explaining how the process would work. Greg and Kelly really went out of their way to accommodate me for my court appearance due to scheduling issues. I even called Greg late one night to let him know I could not make it into court the following morning due to a flight cancellation. He was completely understanding and rescheduled me for the next suitable date the following week. I would HIGHLY recommend using Greg as a divorce attorney and mediator if you are looking for someone who is personable, knowledgeable, and treats you as a person instead of just easy money.
Greg has saved our family time and time again. Dedicated, and will get on your butt if your not doing what your suppose too. He's family now!

Only in beginning stages thus far. But I'm very impressed by Greg Housewirth's willingness to get involved and actually read through all my previous court documents before he'd been paid for any service rendered or gotten any retainer. That's refreshing and unprecedented in previous interactions with attorneys. Very impressed thus far!

On behalf of my family , I want to thank Greg and his staff for there help in our family custody experience. His excellent work , gave us the results we were hoping for. He knows the way child protection services works and worked well with them. His staff was very sensitive to our needs, Greg was very prompt in returning phone calls, emails, and what else was needed to get the best results in the end. He and his staff cared very deeply about the whole family. Thank you all very much. You were a excellent law firm for us. We highly recommend Greg housewirth family law office. You will not regret it for one moment.
Mr. Housewirth was very professional as well as personable, he made me feel at ease at a time when I needed it. I would highly recommend him and would definitely call on him again if the need arose.
I was in close to a 3 year battle with my case. I live in kansas and both Mr.Housewirth and the firm were extremely helpful in all situations that came across. When it came to court dates or meetings it was far enough ahead of time that i could plan accordingly. He would always take into consideration my amount of travel and if it was necessary i needed to be there. I highly recommend this firm and Mr.Housewirth. I cannot thank him enough for all of his time, effort and help. My case ended how i would have hoped.
Thank you for taking the time to speak with me and answer any questions I had!
Mr. Housewirth was wonderful and helped me win my difficult family case after dealing with the situation for many years! His paralegal, Kelly, is also great and very helpful. Mr. Housewirth did a lot of leg work for me and his dedication and hard work was shown during the administrative review, where everything was ruled out. Also, Kelly emailed me every piece of correspondence that the law office received in relation to my case as well as letters sent out on my behalf. My billing statement was very organized and itemized so that I was aware of every charge and where my money was going. I highly recommend Mr. Housewirth to anyone looking for a lawyer for family matters.

CPS can and will be one of the most horrifying experiences you will have in your life time. Often cases are misrepresented with prejudice and bias judgements. Today, I would not be the person that I am if I had not met Holly Schreier. Holly was direct, but yet caring, she had no formed opinions. She got to know my heart and love and most of all that the court needed to see a true picture of who I really was. Holly without a shadow of a doubt, has my recommendations for any mother or grandparents who has it in their heart to raise their children. My babies are the happiest I have ever seen them. Thank you Holly Schreier for saving my family. I will always remember you for your warmth and services. I would not hesitate one minute to refer this law office to handle family matters.
Greg is amazing! I met him as a single lost mother and now I am a confident mother. He and his team are absolutely beautiful. They took my my nightmare and turned it into a dream.
Very Knowledgeable! Answered All My Questions in regards to my current situation. Made me feel more confident in the decisions I Am Making in regards to my family. I would recommend this Firm! It was even great that this was a virtual Consultant due to the fact I am currently out of state at the moment.
Been almost 2 years and I STILL HAVENT received my child's name changed birth certificate. The first time it was because they misspelled the fathers name (took me 1 year of waiting to finally call the Austin vital statistics for the exact reason). Now another year is about to pass after they corrected the name and STILL don't see a birth certificate. They are not easy to contact either. The lawyers always seem to be away from the office. I paid good money for such a frustrating experience.
