How long does a cps caseworker have to investigate a case in texas.?

My ten year burnt her leg with a pot of hot water. i called the school and explained what happen. I knew the CPS would be involved. So when the CPS came by we weren't home, so we called and met them at their office that same day. The case worker said she would have to talk to the other kids and do a home visit and speak with people (contacts we gave) and it would all happen that week because she said she had thirty day to investigate. i didn't hear anything from her in 45 days. she didn't contact the other kids or contacts or home visit. on the 46th day I called her and told her i was moving back home. (job called me back to work) she called a week later to start the investigation as i was moving. in the cps pamplet it said they had 30 days to do it. do i have to let her in back in. can any one advise me? I took my daughter to the ER. She is current on all her shots the burn was fully healed in a month. she didn't miss a single day of school over it. I just feel this case worker made it a personal vendetta towards me.

It really depends as it is not an ending process. Usually a case closure or a case petition needs to be done in 30 days. I would be more interested in seeing the burn and hearing your story as burns are very specific and are fairly easy to discern whether a person is not telling the truth. I would suggest you talk to a supervisor a I would like to see the burns or have a physician who is an expert in child abuse look at the burns. What the CPS worker asked for in Texas makes no sense as none of it has to do with the burns. That is why I have always recommended that all CPS investigators be required to take Anatomy and Physiology at a minimum. If they ever started paying them I would like to see a degree in Nursing (ASN)and a degree in Human services or Social Work, preferably a masters. Unfortunately they don't want to pay these people. I would not have called the school, I would have called a physician. If this burn is a full thickness burn it is a dirty burn and as such requires medical attention to include a shot for Tetanus and Gamma Globulin if the child does not have a current tetanus shot. There is also such a thing as medical neglect. This child needs to see a physician, if they have not. It should be about healed by now. I think the worker you got doesn't have a clue!

I will tell you this...Get a lawyer...you can talk to one for free on the first visit...make no mistake...Tx loves taking good children out of homes, but will leave an abused child in a home..I know...I have personally seen this happen...and they do it so they can show the world when they are grown what good jobs they did by taking good children from good parents.... My advice?..Get in, & talk to a Lawyer ASAP!.....you didn't say where at in Tx...that would help me if I knew?...but, I do know how they operate!....Scarey!....
