RESULTS: An Ad Litem Investigates
Our attorneys regularly represent children in Texas Child Protective Services (CPS) cases as part of our law practice.
The Texas Family Code requires the Court to appoint an attorney and guardian Ad Litem (attorney & advocate for the case) for the child in certain situations when CPS engages a family for services or removes a child from their home.
An Attorney Ad Litem (AAL) is a lawyer for the case and our attorney chooses to represent children as a “kid lawyer” in these cases.
Many people are shocked to find out these children have an advocate, which our attorney believes, who is the child’s voice.
An AAL shouldn’t just stand by and go with the flow of CPS or other attorneys but should:
- Actively investigate,
- Check on the clients in different settings,
- Question everything & everyone,
- And ensure the child’s “voice” is heard.
Our attorney’s weekend investigation efforts yielded fruitful information and insight into the family dynamic and they were successfully able to petition the Court for appropriate changes to advocate for his clients.
At Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys, we are each passionate about different areas of the law and are committed to compassionate representation.
Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys work tirelessly to achieve the greatest possible results for each of our clients and their families. This is one of our successful results, settlements, and verdicts. Every case and client is unique and depends upon the individual facts and circumstances of each case. Clients may or may not obtain the same or similar results in each case.
