Common Questions

Houston Child Protective Services

If you are worried that your children or grandchildren may be taken away by Child Protective Services, we understand that you may have a lot of questions on your mind. Nothing is more difficult than losing your children and feeling powerless when trying to get them back.

First of all, what exactly is Child Protective Services (CPS)?

CPS is responsible for investigating allegations of child abuse or child neglect in the home. If they determine that a child was not being treated well by a family member, they could be taken out of their custody.

If CPS has made a visit to your home, you may be asking why?

The law in Texas states that if someone suspects that a child is being abused, the have to notify the authorities. The law also states that if a report is made, the CPS is responsible for doing everything in their power to investigate the matter.

What does this investigation entail?

During the investigation, you and your children may be interviewed and they may look into your background. We recommend that you do everything possible to work well with the investigator, even if you know you are innocent of the allegations against you.

Perhaps the most important question surrounds whether CPS will take your child away. If they believe that it is the only way to ensure the child’s safety, then they could get a court order to remove the children from your care.
