The SSI comes to me as the appointed guardian over mine and DH's son. He is the biological father of the child that gets SSI. However SSI says that ...

The way Tennessee's law reads is that if you strike a child 6 and under (will be 8) with a weapon (and anything can be a weapon) it is aggravated child abuse. Over 6 (will be 8) is aggravated child abuse if you leave serious injury. Mind you DCS/CPS will say a simple bruise is serious injury. And pl...

Frustrated :: We know they are stalling because birth mom has 5 assessments to complete vs. mine and DH's clinical w/ parenting component. They want him to go back to birth mom despite the fact that we have documentation of excessive ER visits and the fact that she never took the 5yo to a well visit...

Thank you good dad. We are working on it. You know I think what troubles me the most is the case is against me but I am not allowed to do anything because I have no rights to J since he is my step son. They even told my husband that if he were to leave me that J could have come home long ago. Of cou...

unless you make alot of money and are well above poverty level, they cant. if you go in front of the judge and tell them you cant afford it becuase it takes away from your other children and your insurance will not cover it, he/she will order the department to pay for it. they are not suppose to ca...

DCS has said we have to pay for it. Is why we looked into the insurance. The insurance said they would not pay for it because it will become a court document. Medically there is not a reason for either me or my husband to be assessed. (According to the insurance) The reason they want the assessment ...

the problem with defending ourselves is that I would have to do the work and honestly, I can't take on anything else. I wish I could. This mess is just so big and has gotten so out of control.... As is right now, unless we can come up with $1400 for clinical assessments that DCS has ordered via cour...

I know this is an old thread now... momomma, My DH was not allowed to see his son the first 6 months of life. They had separated while she was pregnant. When he was not quite a year he moved out of state. So visitation was limited. Bio mom was neglectful and he and his sister had over 50 sitters in ...

Question...

What can be done about the DCS attorney not putting in the court order what the judge said? Anything? Our attorney says we are nit picking but we aren't. The judge said that my DH and me were to have unsupervised visitation (no limitations) and that bio mom is to have no contact until she has comple...

we actually have both private and medicaid on the kids. Or I should say TennCare... there is a difference. What it does do is forces DCS to take J to our doctors. That is a huge thing alone.

Him being out of control the whole day... he was stopped when he did it, he just kept doing it. It is part of reactive attachment disorder with the combo of PTSD. Not using it as an excuse but ultimately that is what nobody understands. I love my son and would never intentionally harm him, I and my ...

we have three written statements from three different therapist. 2 have seen the kids especially the one in question and 1 works for TEIS. It is what they are told in training that it is best not to spank but if you do either use a paddle, fly swatter, wooden spoon or ruler. That is what they are to...

I am in therapy and have been. I did the parenting assesment and the parenting classes as they requested. You know what, I know I was in the wrong and I was hoping to get help. Spanking a child is not a crime. I spanked too hard and I know that. Forgive me for wanting some help or support. My concer...

I agree. It is a complete injustice. We think they are after us though because we don't fit the mold. I'm 32 no record of anything, I graduated High School, prior to our youngest being born I worked full time, etc...

Tennessee Child Abuse Registry

I don't have a link, but I do have what our attorney has said. In TN it does not matter if you are convicted or not, if CPS has been called out to your home and they find ANY evidence that abuse possibly happened then you are on teh registry for life. They will send you a letter and notify you that ...
