Yes, it would be generally illegal for a parent of a child who was removed by CPS, to take the minor child out of the foster home, without CPS consent or a court order and if parent takes minor child without either CPS permission or court order, such parent can expose himself/herself to both criminal and civil liability.
I wish you the best of luck!
