When it comes to raising a family, many of the actions that parents take can be scrutinized heavily. For one parent, a particular parenting act may seem second nature or incredibly normal while for another parent the same act may seem quite the opposite. On the other hand, there is behavior that is viewed as being wrong no matter the parent or context. In Texas, Child Protective Services (CPS) was created to protect children from the type of behavior exhibited by a parent or another caregiver that qualifies as either neglectful or abusive. For the most part, it is fair to say that CPS does exceptional work in difficult circumstances for the most vulnerable members of our society.
Unfortunately, there are instances where CPS may not make the best determination of what is and what is not questionable behavior on the part of a parent or caregiver. Even though CPS may act with the best interest of children in mind, decisions made by this agency can remove children from their families, cause turmoil in the home, and ultimately involve the courts of this state to play referee in the proceedings. CPS serves a purpose in Texas but it is possible for a lack of information, a misunderstanding or other error could lead to your child or a child you care about being taken into CPS care and away from your family.
As a state agency, CPS has resources that most people cannot compete with. CPS has regional attorneys from all parts of the state. No matter where you live, the agency will be well equipped to make a case and argue in court why your child(ren) need to removed from your care, at least temporarily, and placed with another family or into a community home.
