It’s important to know all the resources available as well as understand the legal system. This website is aiming to give youth in and out of foster care an easy one stop place to find answers to some of the most common questions and to provide current resources.
The Juvenile Courts hear most of the cases with CPS. Those courts are the 313th, 314th and 315th District Courts. There are also two courts which specifically hear cases involving youth in after care. Those two courts are The Child Protection Court and the Gulf Coast Children’s Court.
