Re: Should parents let CPS in willingly or not?

You can assert your rights again in the middle of an "inspection" ... revoking permission and booting them out. Yes, it's been court affirmed but I don't have a link for it.

Re: no warrant

They can take a child(ren) without a warrant when the children are in imminent risk of harm. Meaning... there is no possible way to leave them unattended for the amount of time that it would take to secure a warrant (let's ballpark 2-3 hours, depending on where you live). This requirement is routine...

Re: CPS nightmare ((Please Help))

Every mother and every pregnancy is different. Unassisted home births are hugely risky. You should use a midwife and/or birthing center if you don't want a hospital birth. Personally, I believe hospital births are WAY overdone, mother are over medicated and/therefore cesarean rates are through the r...

Re: Parental Rights

Where are the kids? If there was no abuse or neglect, going by your state laws, then you should prepare a document to submit to court that supports that.

Just to clarify, the "petition" can only be filed by CPS... do you mean she made allegations?

First rule of the law... NEVER talk to police unless you are trying to press charges toward someone else.

Re: Upcoming CPS "Interview"

In terms of confidentiality, they mainly want to protect the children of real abuse/neglect from exposure/gossip, plus, they don't want parents manipulating real victims into being afraid to tell the truth. Otherwise, I know of no laws dictating what parents can/can not do/say/talk about. Free speec...

Yes, you absolutely have rights to your child's medical records.

Re: Can an Adopted child "terminate adopted parental rights"

BTW, in TPR cases, it is the *PARENTS* rights which are terminated (even though you had arrangements otherwise)... *NOT* the child's rights. The CHILD still has rights and should be able to reach out to you... it just doesn't work the other way around.

Don't write off the police... they don't have a financial incentive to lie and fabricate evidence. In our case, having a police investigation and officer affirm that there was NO abuse/neglect was a huge help. They both follow the same laws so to have the police say you're innocent puts them in a po...
