Are there specific court orders stating he can't be near his children unsupervised? Unfortunately, we can't hel...

With the psych eval, just watch for the times where you are asked the same question, several times, just worded differently. Those questions are there to trip people up (for various reasons). If the evaluator wants to do inkblots with you, tell him that you have researched inkblots. Legally, the ink...

About the service plan....If there are services on there that you disagree with,ask the worker why those services are listed. If the services are NOT needed, very calmly negotiate them off the list. If you approach it calmly, you can very well get un-needed services removed from the list. Say the wo...

You can use it and go to the Police, and tell them you were harrassed upon, and the Police will tell this person to back off, and if it does not work, the police will go to his or her house and physically tell them to back off or face a harrassment charge. I have done this once before already and h...

The next tirade she's on and she calls you, keep asking her, Why on earth do you keep making all these reports to cps when you know it's simply not true. Make that your only response to her tirade. Remain calm and rational. Example: Ex: You son of a gun, you are nothing but a worthless piece of exis...

Yeah but in third world countries like Africa, a malnourished child can and often do die due to common illnesses like a cold. Diseases associated with malnourishment and starvation run rampant in third world countries (scurvy, rickets, etc). Those diseases left untreated will eventually kill a child...

Hmm, very interesting subject. I would think that as long as the children in a Vegan family weren't malnourished, cps has no case. There are vitamins and other supplements that contain no meat or dairy products that can be given to provide the components of a diet that meat/dairy products usually pr...

Harlan, excellent thread! While there may not be standards for a 'clean home', I think that anyone involved in a cps investigation/case might want to think about taking that extra step to make sure the cps workers CAN'T turn around and say, 'cluttered house at each visit' or whatever. If they see co...

That may be true about alot of GALS involved in cps cases. However, my sons' GAL, although a bit harsh, was always on the side of quick reunification. He said almost immediately that it was in the best interest of the children to be returned. With him, the judge and the fact that all our documents w...

Unfortunately, sending one child home at a time is pretty standard.

If this is to be considered child abuse, so would taking your kids to go play with paint guns. Those 'bullets' leave nasty welts yet I see young children going all the time with their parents at the place down the street from us.
