Re: Grandma Needs Advice in Calif

Lyglee54: Sounds like the case has moved beyond my area of work. I work on the investigation side and not the court side. I have the following suggestions that may or may not work. If you could, try to get some duplicates of the photos that show the wounds on your grandson. Bring them to a doctor wh...

Lyglee: Do you mind to give some more details? Sounds like it went from the investigation i.e. Any prior CPS investigation? If so, what was the allegation and conclusion of it? What was the current allegation, general neglect? I assume it got substantiated. Any DV or AOD issue? What did the doctor s...

GamerXY: I am still confused because you keep referring to CPS SW when the correct term is caseworker. Firstly, most CPS caseworkers are NOT SW's. Most contract SW's here in Iowa are not even licensed SW's. I did run across one MSW working for the state agency, and that encounter (cross exam) was a...

Hey Gary,

Given that many news and facts posted here were on CPS being bad, would it be necessary for me to add more onto it? Although I agree that children do get hurt in the system, I feel it is also important to acknowledge the fact that the system exists for a reason.

I think in normal cases, the lawyer can represent both parents. Perhaps you two need different lawyers because there is a new allegation against you individually.

The only reason she told me was that it would be a 'conflict of interest' if our current lawyer (who we obtained and paid for earlier on when CPS threatened to TPR us) were to remain on the case. We believe they don't want CPS to use her because she use to be a family court judge many years earlier...

You may want to talk to you SW's supervisor and find out why "you can't move." AFAIK, your SW should be able to transfer your case to another state as long as the Court did not order you to stay in CA as suggested by Frustrated. If it did, there's nothing you or your worker can do. If I were you, Ye...

Well, two days ago, her supervisor called and wants to interview the two older kids. This is just standard proceedure. The children can refuse the interviews. They can meet the caseworker in the front yard. You don't need to let her back into your house. You did it once already, and the caseworker ...
