Has anybody seen a CPS office that isn't cluttered? Ever looked at how much garbage is in caseworkers state cars? Why make your home beyond complaint? Just don't let the caseworkers in! There is no such thing as beyond complaint. They just lie! The complaint is a cop out and a ruse to put the parent...

Making the "deal with the devil" generally doesn't end well. A famous author wrote a story about how these went. It had such an impact on English lit that their name is linked to that sort of a tricky bargain. Perhaps you have heard of a "Faustian bargain".. If you're GUILTY and they have you "dead ...

Spanking legal as long as you don't leave any marks? In my family, resting an elbow or getting up from a CHAIR leaves a red mark. Pale Nordic complexions are a real nuisance. Are you sure the law in MO isn't about leaving a mark that lasts more than x hours or X days? Most states divine spanking fro...

For almost every problem, like bad service plans, file a complaint in court and ask for a constructive alternative. CPSWATCH used to suggest that you should propose YOUR OWN service plan in court, to counter theirs. Ask for services that work in your FAVOR, if possible. In our case the accuser/kinsh...

The only things that please CPS are if you grovel, put your children completely at their mercy and tell them how wonderful they are. Narcissists and Megalomaniacs on a power trip.

I thought you were discussing de-cluttering. Clutter compalints are a classic "catch all" from CPS. Insiders to CPS reported YEARS ago that Complaints of clutter are used when they actually have NO ISSUE but intend to COME UP with something. There IS a difference between clutter and filth. I do NOT ...

You just can't meet standards that don't exist. CPS agencies don't WANT official standards for the inspections of homes because such standards would prevent them from personality or subjective judgements about clutter. If they ever create official standards for home inspections the biggest problem f...

Marina's got it. The vast majority of families who fall prey to CPS agencies, guilty or innocent, are pressured into a "stipulation". There is some mechanism, perhaps the bar association which encourages attorneys to urge every client family to "stipulate'. Stipulate in english would usually be TO a...

Remember how they selectively report only NEGATIVES. I'm sure I'm not the only one who told you that. Legal argument for that is that they are witholding exculpatory evidence! A big legal no no! Selective reporting is also an abuse of the preponderance standard (or any other) to skew things against ...

In TX the Judge has a 90 day deadline right?
I'm betting you'll have an answer within
a week or else they might do it on the 89th day.

Best of luck.

What are the pros and cons of TPR and relinquishment in IL? The Termination itself or the hearing process? Losing contact with your child forever is grim. Most people see it as comparable to a death sentence. Often it certainly is the death of the family. The Process? You get to be HEARD, which in s...

Are custody evaluators as corrupt as Child Protection?
Are they getting pulled from Child Protection agencies?

AFRA has had success with class action "1983" suits in 31 states.
It seems the Federal courts are not giving caseworkers immunity.

I think you should be more persistent about knowing the truth. At age 17 they are complete jerks to keep you in the dark. The more likely truth is that the caseworkers don't know squat and are working to push their own variety of mental illness! They might have in mind to "rescue" you from your Mom ...

No hair sample collected by a caseworker is valid. Has to be taken BY the lab people, carefully. Caseworkers themselves probably do drugs.

Actually, if they step outside of the specifics of a search warrant, what they find can be thrown out even in Juvenile Court. You just need an attorney gutsy enough to push the issue.
