How to Beat a CPS Case in Texas

If you and your family find yourselves in the unfortunate position of being under investigation by the Texas CPS, the best outcome you can hope for is dismissal.

The judge will grant a motion for dismissal if:

  • The judge deems the evidence provided against you is insufficient proof of an improper home environment
  • CPS is satisfied with the changes made to the home and approves of the living conditions for the child
