You need to know that a CPS report will be forwarded to the police or to the Harris County District Attorney's Office, therefore you have to consider the possible consequences once you learn that a CPS investigation has been started. You or a family member could be arrested. During the early stages of the investigation, do not be misled. A CPS investigator may ask you some serious questions which could implicate you or a family member in a criminal or juvenile offense. An investigator may assure you that if you help explain some troubling issues that it may clear you or a family member of suspicion. The investigator may even ask you to undergo a polygraph examination.
