Our dedicated team at James D Jones is here to guide you through each step of the process, ensuring that you are well-prepared and informed.

1. Pre-Hearing Preparation

Prior to the hearing, our attorneys will thoroughly review your case, gather evidence, and assess the strengths and weaknesses of the CPS's case against you. We will work closely with you to gather any relevant documents, witness statements, or other evidence that may support your position during the hearing.

2. Presentation of Evidence

During the actual hearing, our experienced attorneys will present your case, highlighting any mitigating factors, challenging the evidence presented by the CPS, and presenting a compelling argument for the child's safe return. We will leverage our extensive knowledge of the legal system to ensure your voice is heard and your rights are protected.

3. Cross-Examination

If necessary, our attorneys will skillfully cross-examine the CPS witnesses, challenging their credibility and the relevance of their statements. This process is vital in uncovering any inconsistencies or biases that may impact the outcome of the hearing.

4. Closing Arguments

Our skilled attorneys will deliver strong closing arguments, summarizing the key points of your case and emphasizing why it is in the best interest of the child to be returned to your care. We will strive to leave a lasting impression on the judge, highlighting the strengths of your case and effectively countering any arguments presented by the CPS.

5. Post-Hearing Proceedings

Following the hearing, our team will continue to provide support and guidance. In the event of an unfavorable ruling, we may explore additional legal avenues, such as filing an appeal or pursuing alternative dispute resolution methods. Our ultimate goal is to ensure the best outcome for you and your child.
