The above answer does not create an attorney/client relationship. These responses are merely intended to provide general information about the question asked. Frequently, the question does not include important facts that, if known, could significantly change the answer. Information provided on this site should not be used as a substitute for competent legal advice from a licensed attorney in your community. The law changes frequently and varies from state to state. You should verify and confirm any information provided with an attorney licensed in your state.
You need to go to court to obtain a custody order. CPS seems to exit the picture once the child is in good hands even if there’s no permanent custody order for the person who is caring for the child.
While I appreciate the opportunity to weigh in on your question, I am not your attorney. I base my response on the limited facts you provided. A consultation with a family law attorney in which you discuss the situation in more detail is the best way to determine your legal rights and liabilities. I recommend that you consult with an experienced family law attorney in your county to get advice specifically tailored to your circumstances. In Tarrant County, please call to consult with me.
