If you are contacted by Harris County Children's Protective Services because they are investigating you or a family member, you must take this very seriously. Not only could you or a family member be facing criminal or juvenile prosecution, such an investigation could also destroy the peace of the family home by removing one of more of your children.

You need to know that a CPS report will be forwarded to the police or to the Harris County District Attorney's Office, therefore you have to consider the possible consequences once you learn that a CPS investigation has been started. You or a family member could be arrested. During the early stages of the investigation, do not be misled. A CPS investigator may ask you some serious questions which could implicate you or a family member in a criminal or juvenile offense. An investigator may assure you that if you help explain some troubling issues that it may clear you or a family member of suspicion. The investigator may even ask you to undergo a polygraph examination.
