The Children’s Commission’s Legal Representation Subcommittee has produced a Tool Kit for Attorneys Representing the DFPS in CPS Cases, which has been endorsed by the Texas District and County Attorney Association and DFPS. Designed for in-court use by County, District and DFPS Regional Attorneys, the Tool Kit covers essential legal basics at a glance that could be beneficial for CASA programs as well, including:
- evidentiary issues,
- hearing checklists,
- paternity issues,
- older youth,
- related federal law issues and more.
