Hi I just got a letter in the mail from DFPS stating their investigation was complete and their findings of reason to believe whatever it is they stated and were thinking I went to custody court about 3 months ago over my kids and my ex and I only have 2 hours a week visits once court was done I was told cps was out of all this so why did I get a letter? Is it a closing letter? Whatever they said in the letter to have reason of belief about is that going to come with charges should I be worried about that letter or is it just a closing letter and it’s done with? Should I be worried ?
You need to consult with an experienced family law attorney IMMEDIATELY to discuss this letter and all the details of the case. If you believe that the findings are inaccurate, you have the right to an “Administrative Review of Investigation Findings,” sort of like an appeal of the CPS findings. But you must request the review quickly, and in proper legal form, so don’t wait.
