I received a Letter from Adult Protective Services (APS)?


I received a letter from APS that I’m being investigated, what should I do? Read the letter very carefully, the letter should give you a short explanation as to why they are contacting you. The letter may also list the name or names of the alleged victim of the suspected abuse, neglect, or exploitation.

Should I call them back? Possibly. If you are comfortable with doing so, you can call them and tell them that “you are going to cooperate but you would like to do so with the help of your attorney.” If you hire our firm, then we will contact them immediately, on your behalf, and let them know that I all communications will need to go through our office.

The letter says that Validated cases will be reported to law Enforcement, does this mean that I’m going to be arrested? An arrest may occur and you may get charged with a crime but that can be avoided by acting fast. We recommend that you consult an attorney immediately. Our strategy would be to make contact with APS and then strategize with you the best plan going forward that will close the investigation and keep you from being charged with a crime.

Please always remember that if you are in this situation, It is your right to say that you would like to consult an attorney before doing anything else.  We want to help the whole family in these situations against the District Attorney’s office and APS. Both of these entities will try and create sides and separate your family. Please call our office before doing anything or talking to anyone, 817-617-8058, or email at brad@thescaliselaw.com
