Social worker home visits after reunification

If you get your child back, when and how often do social workers visit the home? Do they have to be scheduled or are parents always "on call" to do a home visit?

Also in my state they are required to conduct some unannounced visits, which does not make you "on call". When people show up unannounced and uninvited they shouldn't have any expectation that you will be home.
You can do an online query for your states CPS policy and procedures manual to find out how long they will be visiting your children if you would rather not take the more direct route of asking the SW.
