What You Can Expect from a CPS Investigation

By law, when a report of child abuse or neglect reaches CPS, a caseworker must go out to see the child and family to see if there is any evidence to support this claim.

Reasons for a CPS investigation generally include reports of:

  • Abuse of a child
  • Neglect of a child
  • Drug use in a child's residence
  • Domestic violence in a child's residence

After an investigation, the caseworker could decide the following results of the investigation:

  • There is "reason to believe" the reports of abuse or neglect
  • The claims are "ruled out" as erroneous
  • The investigation was "unable to determine" either of the above

About CPS & Relocation Cases

If you are afraid that relocating your child to a family violence shelter could jeopardize your custody rights, you should know that seeking shelter will likely be viewed in a good light. This is because you are showing that you are taking steps to protect your child from harm. Furthermore, a CPS investigation will not give away your whereabouts.

Whatever the situation, your child would not be at risk of removal unless there is immediate harm present. Even if a child is removed from their parents, this is temporary in most cases. Depending on the investigation, however, parents may have to abide by a safety plan or service plan imposed by what CPS views as the best option for the child's protection. If parents break these rules, they may lose custody.

Tenacious Defense of Your Parental Rights: Call (713) 999-3113

In many cases, parental courses, child day care, and other community resources could be supplied by the CPS, enabling parents or guardians to preserve their rights and keep custody of their child. In other cases, it may be possible to show evidence that can clarify a mistaken report and clear a family's name.

If you are facing an investigation or an agency ruling, I, Houston family attorney Enrique "Henry" Torres, can fight for you and your family every step of the way. I know how important your children are to you, and I want to help keep your family together. Let us work together to overcome this difficult situation.
