Do you automatically lose your kid if CPS takes you to court?

No, but if CPS or DCFS or DFS or whatever your jurisdiction calls that particular agency of the state filed an action in court to place your children in foster care and/or to terminate your parental rights, the odds are against you. If you are innocent of the charges against you (that does happen at a surprising rate, though we all need to acknowledge that there are plenty of legitimate times CPS will intervene on behalf of the child for that child protection) and you are being given the runaround (or worse, being chewed up by a bureaucratic machine that isn’t interested in the truth), lawyer up. It is all but guaranteed that you couldn’t defend yourself successfully without a good (a good) lawyer’s help.
