It doesn't state in the Constitution that someone can't sell illegal drugs from their home... so if CPS removes children from a home because it's used for illegal drug sales is the Judge required to return the children because it's not in the Constitution? It also doesn't doesn't state in the Const...

The primary defense is Constitutional law?

Then how could you claim that the primary defense of criminal and civil chargers is Constitutional law? Very easily, if the Constitution is the primary law and trumps all other laws, you don't have to be a rocket scientist or even a lawyer to figure it out. It doesn't state in the Constitution that...

I didn't imply anyone should wait for the appeals process to assert their rights. Well I guess you had me and a few others here fooled. So then, why do you argue the point in the first place? And in fact belittle those who advise that rights should always be asserted in any and every court? I'm not...

You must always fight for your rights, whether the lower courts recognize it as a defense or not, the higher courts do.

All CPS has to do is ask for six more months once or twice, and the kids are in foster care a year or a ...

Re: Recanting

My daughter has now told my mother that she made all of her allegations up. To say that we're blown away is an understatement. What if anything, can I do now? She's going to see a specialist this week who will be aprised of all the events. So that's documentation. No doubt, CPS will believe that I'...

I certainly don't know everything but I never heard of a case where the CPS victims negotiate an agreement with CPS, they dictate all the terms, take it or leave it.

I think everyone here knows full well that you don't dictate terms to CPS, they dictate terms to you. I'm not talking about "dictating terms" to CPS.
