Legal Aspects of Child Abuse and Neglect Cases in Texas: A Compendium of Cases and Statutory Provisions.
Foerster, Frank; Spearly, James L.
Designed to assist attorneys, social workers, and other interested parties, this manual describes work with child abuse and neglect cases in Texas. After a brief overview of the child abuse and neglect issue in that state, as well as an examination of the role of the Texas Department of Human Resources, the manual discusses suits affecting the parent/child relationship in Texas and outlines in detail the stages in a child abuse case from emergency removal through adoption. A conclusion provides a brief discussion of the Indian Child Welfare Act and Title 4 of the Texas Family Code (entitled "Protection of the Family"). A list of related reading materials and copies of the Indian Child Welfare Act and the Texas Family Code are appended. (MP)
