In some circumstances, Texas law requires courts to appoint attorneys to children and parents in child protection cases filed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
Texas counties are now required to report data about representation of children and parents in child protection cases to the Office of Court Administration (OCA) through the Texas Indigent Defense Commission (TIDC). This legislation can be found here: https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/86R/billtext/pdf/SB00560F.pdf.
Data gathered by TIDC can be found at http://tidc.tamu.edu/Public.Net/.
TIDC’s Family Representation Team can help.
