Handbook for Families Involved With Child Protective Services

This interactive handbook by the Supreme Court of Texas Permanent Judicial Commission for Children, Youth and Families describes what happens when CPS investigates a family or removes a child from the home. What are your rights? Who are all the different people working on the case? What can you expect when you go to court? What can you do to keep your family together? This handbook answers many of your questions.

The Parent Resource Guide (this handbook) was written by the Supreme Court of Texas Permanent Judicial Commission for Children, Youth and Families, a group of parents, parent advocates, lawyers, judges, social workers, and others who work with families when CPS gets involved.
