Helping Clients With Child Protective Service Matters in North Carolina


If you are contacted by Child Protective Services (CPS) in North Carolina, you have every reason to be concerned about your rights as a parent. If CPS workers come to your door, that means someone has accused you of neglect or abuse. CPS workers have the power to remove your children from your home, if they believe the accusations are credible.

At Kennedy Law Associates in Charlotte, North Carolina, our lawyers help parents get their children back following a removal action by CPS. We also defend parents in actions to remove their parental rights.

Who Accused Me of Child Abuse or Neglect?

Police, doctors, teachers and some other professionals are required to report suspected incidents of child abuse or neglect. However, anyone can make an anonymous complaint: a neighbor, an ex-spouse or a relative.

Child Protective Services in North Carolina has the responsibility to investigate allegations of child abuse and neglect. If CPS workers remove your children from your home, it’s important to seek advice from an attorney. CPS can begin a court action to terminate your parental rights.

If your children were taken wrongly, our lawyers can help you get them back. If there are parenting issues that you need to address before your children can be returned to you, we can help you address those issues.
