Re: This just sucks

they aren't going to call you very often, because they want to drag it out, and they want you to sit around and wait. I would be worried that while they aren't calling you, they're building a case against you. Here's what I've done recently: I bought a voice recorder, and record all conversations I ...

Re: IS CPS GOING TO KIDNAP MY CHILD?

No, I'm not in california. I'm in texas. I doubt they will be able to deem his grandmother unfit (he's with my exhusband's mother, not my mother). She has never used drugs or been commited of a crime, nor has her husband, and their house is immaculate. So they can just put him in foster care if they...

Re: IS CPS GOING TO KIDNAP MY CHILD?

In their petition they asked the judge for the services (drug testing, parenting classes, counseling, psych eval) and then a safety plan placement with no unsupervised contact by me. My ex was not listed in the services or safety plan, he was only summoned to testify. But when we got there, they thr...

Re: IS CPS GOING TO KIDNAP MY CHILD?

ok, another question... What is the difference in them forcing me to no contact with my son and them removing my child? Because I honestly do not see the difference. If I didn't have his grandma, he would be in foster care. So what is the difference? And how can they say I'm not entitled to a court ...

Re: IS CPS GOING TO KIDNAP MY CHILD?

well, luckily, while we were still in court, I asked the judge if I were allowed to use my own psychologist for the psych eval, and she said I was def. allowed to do so. I'm a poor person. My ex and I are barely getting by, although I haven't let cps know that. Since I just moved here, I don't have ...

Its interesting how they are so nice to you when you are fighting them, and as soon as you begin to comply, they get pissed... Saw this first hand a while ago... They're not very happy with me right now.

Re: Do CPS workers get paid for taking and placing babies?

They don't get paid under the table. However, they take babies from parents any way they can. If they have to make up a reason, they will convince the judge that the child is abused or neglected. There are a million reasons they could use, from a dirty dish in the sink, to a skinned knee. Once they ...

Re: I called CPS on a teacher

Once they get your kids info, they will investigate YOU... not the school. If they do find that the school assaulted your child, they might blame it on you and take your kids, or better yet, they'll want to come in and look at your house, and if it's clean, they'll keep their eyes on the carpet for ...

Re: What are the laws on letting an investigator in your hou

If I hadn't let them in my house, they wouldn't have ever found anything to use against me. They would have taken me to court anyway, but with no ammunition. It was the biggest mistake I've ever made.

Worried about my Psych Eval

I've been ordered by the court to take a Psychological Evaluation for CPS. I'm worried about this because at first, I thought, no big deal, I'm good at faking mental health or disorders, I've been doing it for years in order to avoid certain diagnosis that I'm afraid is imminent. However now, I've h...

Re: IS CPS GOING TO KIDNAP MY CHILD?

So basically, what you're saying is that they will not let me give him to his daddy? He is not being accused of abuse or neglect. He can pass any drug test they throw at him. If I give him full custody, will they show up at his door to remove our child? How can they? Will they be able to get a warra...

Re: IS CPS GOING TO KIDNAP MY CHILD?

if I give up my rights, they can call me anything they want. This is not a way to win the case. It's a way to get them out of my child's life right now.

Re: IS CPS GOING TO KIDNAP MY CHILD?

Another plan could be to give his father full custody. In other words, give up all parental rights to him. If I do this, they will be forced to close the case against me. If there is no case against me, they will not be able to force any safety plans or service plans that mean I have to be supervise...

It does not say who should supervise. Doe...
