oh yeah those kinds of cards are for people who are being questioned/charged with a crime. they have the right for their attorney. and children who are being questioned/charged have the right for their parents and attorney. to extend that to CPS is funny. the kids aren't in trouble. and hiding your...

Finding mental health care that isn't CPS connected

How do you do this? Is it as simple as just asking if they are a provider contracted with CPS? Our kids have varying needs for mental health/counseling/etc. *I* need therapy due to PTSD like symptoms directly related to CPS harassment for the past five years. We are not anti-psych, we just don't wan...

hey everyone

Well I hoped she'd go away... :lol: But not. She called yesterday for my GF. Called again today and GF answered. She wanted to "touch base" and said that she still wants to "get together". She asked if GF had signed guardianship authorized her son's caregiver to get medical treatment and such, and G...

Recommendations for voice recorder please?

Looks like we're going to have to meet with the CW next week. Despite her having plenty of info and all reassurances she is insisting on a "meeting". I need your recommendations for a good voice recorder that can be hidden and not heard (no tape hissing). Last time, I bought a digital recorder at Wa...

Re: Do you have an attorney?

If not I would strongly suggest you get one, for your protection. One of the biggest mistakes I made was in not hiring an attorney (my child was not removed from my home but I went through months of home visits, etc.). I thought that since I was innocent I didn't need legal advice. Sounds like they...

. Check your state CPS manual for what "initiates" an investigation. Is it contact with the child, contact with the parent? Face to face contact? Telephone contact? Attempted contact? Are you really in a hurry to make the contact yourself, rather than let them do it in a proper way? Also check the ...

What is "too late" for guardianship?

Couple years ago I did a POA for my kids giving POA to my uncle and aunt (they aren't in the state anymore). Now I'm wishing I'd done a Guardianship and kept it up naming my mom as Guardian, but at the time she was out of state and since then I let my guard down and got this stupid false sense of se...

Hi all... I haven't been here in ages for CPS reasons anyway, and I foolishly thought we were DONE with them. Picked up my youngest son from school today, and he says he was interviewed.

i think you would probably be within your rights to tell him that he has to come get child, however he will probably pull you having to go get child, not because he can legally, but because if you want the child back hell probably make you come get him/her. Well, what I'm wondering is if there is n...

Is doing this helpful at all if CPS does not have conservatorship or custody? In our case, CPS is involved, but they've given Temp primary physical Custody to the child's father with both mom and dad still named as Joint Managing Conservatorship.

Workers can be changed and reassigned? Most cases they don't and Supervisors refused to change them. They can be reassigned only if they got caught for doing something wrong and Courts are looking into it.
