For those of you first dealing with CPS, in my opinion, just don’t sign anything that gives them control of your children, don’t let them in your home without a warrant, and don’t talk to them. They are the enemy and they are not looking out for the children. They give judges false information to obtain warrants. Try and find out what information they said to get a warrant if they do.
If you don’t talk to them, they make threats. That’s all they are, threats. Don’t give them any information. They will twist it and rewrite it as they understood what you said, which is usually has nothing to do with what you were really saying. Don’t trust your lawyer. He is on their side too. Do the research and tell him what you want him to do, don’t let him talk you into something you don’t want to do, or would even be the worst things you could do.
Fight and make them prove everything they say. If there was real child abuse going on it would be a criminal matter. If they can’t charge you with a crime, then there is no child abuse taking place. Don’t be afraid and don’t let them wear you down. Best of luck.
