There will be an initial court date where you can tell the Judge that you contest the removal of your children by CPS. The court will ask you if you need a court-appointed attorney or if you will be hiring your own attorney.
More information is needed to answer your first question and it would be best if you called an immigration attorney to do a consultation over the phone. You should consult with a family law attorney for assistance fighting for custody. Best wishes!

He needs to read his order to see what it says about giving notice to the other party of the expense owed. If the requirements in order were not followed he will need to make that argument to the court. The OAG is not going to argue anything on his behalf.

Under the Texas Family Code, you have to have "standing" in order to bring a lawsuit to get Court ordered possession of or access to children. "Standing" essentially means the right to bring the lawsuit. It can be very technical. You need to consult with an experienced family...Read more »

You would need to file a writ of habeas corpus and or a petition/motion for enforcement against noncustodial parent. If you win, the judge can issue a capias for his arrest if he still doesn’t return the children. Police usually won’t get involved unless there’s a capias issues against a person.
Thanks for your question! I would reach out to a family law attorney in your area (I didn't see a city listed on your question) so the attorney can review the final order with you and learn more about the facts surrounding your situation.
It sounds like you are wanting to modify the...Read more »
