Advisory for Indian nationals

                                                          Advisory for Indian nationals

        Indian nationals are advised to be mindful of the US Federal and State laws, especially those relating to treatment of young children. In the State of Texas, for example, State law requires that anybody who believes that a child has been abused or neglected to make a report to the Child Protective Services (CPS) Program of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) or to a law enforcement agency.  The CPS Program investigates allegations of child abuse and neglect by parents or other family or household members. There have been cases brought to attention of this Consulate from time to time when temporary legal custody of children of Indian nationals has been handed to the State government concerned by a court of law after a determination that children cannot live safely at home.
