LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A judge has approved CPS guidelines detailing how William and Claire Rembis can regain custody of their 10 children, who are currently in the state's care.

Claire Rembis told us the judge is giving them more time to go over the guidelines because they don't agree with all of them.

Their 17-year-old son is the only child not in the state's care.

The Rembis family has had child welfare issues in at least three states since 2001.

The most recent CPS investigation into the Rembis family started when a neighbor reported finding their 2 year old wandering outside unsupervised.

When investigators arrived at the home, they reported that children did not have beds and there was not enough food in the home to feed them.

Over the past few months, there have been reports of the children going through a dumpster to find food, but the Rembis family disputes this claim.

"It's really unnecessary and it hurts our children. I'm not sure that CPS and or even our society realizes that impact of separating children from their loving, non-abusing, non-neglecting, biological parents. But it's running a toll on our children."

William and Claire Rembis deny any allegation of child neglect, and are not currently facing criminal charges here in Lubbock.

The Rembis' will be back in court on Jan. 4.
