Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If CPS has you in their database and did not have charges against you, then you have a right to appeal to the director of CPS for removal. Legally, in Texas, only the director has the authority to remove you from the database. If they refuse to do so and you were never found substantiated for abuse, you can file a suit against CPS for improperly reporting your case, but you wold need a local attorney to represent you to get you removed.
