Hello. My name is Alex.
Thank you for your question.
I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

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!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
