This post concludes and recaps my series on how false CPS claims can impact Las Vegas child custody cases. I decided to write on this topic due to the fact that, for obvious reasons, many parents are unsure as to how they should proceed after a case has been opened with Child Protective Services. It is important to take such matters seriously, even when the allegations are false. The goal of my last several articles has been to provide information which will help people to understand their options. It has also been my goal to provide information which will help people to make an informed decision when they are selecting a family law lawyer.

I have addressed multiple topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:
- Steps to take after a false CPS claim has been made
- How Clark County Family Court Judges view CPS cases
- Dealing with false CPS accusations
- Changing custody due to a false CPS claim
There are several reasons why it is important for parents to understand these issues. First, it is understandable that one may not initially be concerned with a false allegation. Such parents quickly realize, however, that they cannot simply “explain the matter to the judge.” The issue must be dealt with properly. Second, Judges are solely concerned with the best interests of the child or children. This is why they will always be focused on whether or not a safe environment is being provided. Third, it is important to deal with false accusations by developing and presenting a comprehensive defense. Finally, it may be possible for the accused parent to gain child custody after it is shown that the claims were false.
One point that I stressed through each of these articles is that it is vital that accused parents retain qualified counsel to assist them. Matters involving Child Protective Services can have many nuances and no two cases are alike. By retaining an experienced representative, parents can make sure that their rights are fully protected.
