When Does CPS Become Involved?

Texas law states that any parent may be investigated for child abuse if they have caused serious bodily injury to their child. Parents may also be required to undergo investigation if they are accused of violating the Texas family law codes pertaining to the protection of children:

  • Failing to provide a child with food, shelter, or clothing
  • Causing emotion of mental injury to a child
  • Causing physical injury or substantial harm to a child
  • Threatening substantial harm to a child
  • Permitting a child to engage in sexual performances
  • Compelling a child to engage in sexual conduct of pornography
  • Committing sexual conduct that is harmful to a child’s mental, physical and emotional well-being
  • Allowing a child to be put in a situation that leads to emotional mental injury
  • Placing a child in or refusing to remove a child from a situation that could result in harm
