CPS Reporting


The 86th Legislature required “counties and courts are to report information on court-ordered representation for appointments made in suits affecting the parent-child relationship.” See Senate Bill 560.

No later than November 1 of each odd-numbered year and in the form and manner prescribed in the plan, each local administrative district judge for a court subject to the plan, or the person designated by the judge, shall prepare and provide to the council:

(1) A copy of all formal and informal rules and forms the court uses to appoint representation in suits affecting the parent-child relationship under Part 1, Subchapter B, Chapter 107, Family Code;

(2) Any fee schedule the court uses for court-ordered representation; and

(3) Information on whether the court is complying with Chapter 37, including the lists and the rotation system required by that chapter.
