SAN ANGELO, Texas -- A Texas district judge has ordered the return of more than 400 children taken from a polygamist group's ranch.

Parents are allowed to begin picking up their children at 10 a.m., Central time, Monday.

The parents are not allowed to leave the state of Texas without court permission and must participate in parenting classes. They were also ordered not to interfere with any ongoing child abuse investigation and to allow the children to undergo psychiatric or medical exams if required.

The order comes just days after the Texas Supreme Court said Texas Child Protective Services overreached in seizing custody of the children from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ranch in West Texas.
