What to Do if CPS Is Investigating You

If you are facing allegations of abuse or a CPS investigation, it is important that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible. When allegations of abuse or neglect are made, CPS will investigate the situation to determine if the child’s well-being is in jeopardy and may remove the child from the home. In the event a child is removed from a home, the court will hold a hearing to determine if the allegations are true.

Situations that may result in a CPS investigation include:

  • Unsafe conditions
  • Negligence
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Sexual abuse

An experienced CPS lawyer will be able to help you throughout the investigation, represent you in court, and help you ensure that the best interests of you and your family are protected.

What Happens When CPS Opens a Case?

Child Protective Services may open a case if someone reports you to CPS. When this happens, an investigator will begin to gather information regarding you and your children to determine whether or not your children are safe in your care. They will likely talk to you, your family, your kids teachers and doctors, and people who know you and your kids. They will also inspect your home and take pictures of your living environment.

Additionally, the CPS investigator will examine your children for injury or health issues and review of criminal records, school records, and medical records. They may also request a medical or psychological examination of your child.

What are My Rights With CPS in Texas?

If you feel that you are being investigated by CPS in Texas, you have the right to exercise the Fifth Amendment and remain silent. That is because anything you say or do can be used against you in a court of law. Even if you mean well, words can be misinterpreted and documented. You also have the right to exercise the Fourth Amendment if the investigator attempts to enter the home. A court must have issued a warrant to pass.

However, there are things you can say to help your case. These include mentioning people that you know who can back up the statements that you are not abusive or neglectful. Staying calm and explaining things in a slow and concise manner will help get your point across in a more accurate fashion.

Are CPS Cases Public Record in Texas?

In most cases, CPS records are not public record. However, you do have the right to request records about yourself if CPS has performed an investigation about you concerning child abuse or neglect.
