awhile back I attempted suicide. I did it out side of the home when my child was in school. now the say I am a threat to my child because I might try and do it in front of him. CPS thinks splinting my family will do less harm than me maybe doing something. What rights do I have. These people act like the gestapo.

How long have they had your child?

Do you have a court ordered service plan? If so, you must do everything on that plan and convince the therapists that you're no longer likely to attempt suicide.

Rights... well, the 14th Amendment: "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." (There's more to it.)

I think the key to winning your case will be the work you do with the therapist.

I would like to add to that. This has nothing to do with suicide but I truly believe most therapist are paid
to back up the court. I know for a fact their was nothing wrong with my oldest child but the therapist made
it so we cant see her even though all of our visits went very well with her. My lawyer even told me that
this woman had destroyed other familys who were in much better shape than we were and we actually were
good. This is just my opinion.

I wanted to just say I am sorry that you tried to do this. When I have social services come to my door and threaten to constantly take away my children I feel like just ending it all. My drive TO NOT DO IT is my children. Even if you try to commit suicide while not in your children's presence what were to happen to them if you were to actually go through with it? It shouldn't be a reason to take your children unless they went through the traumatic experience of seeing it. My dad tried to commit suicide in the bathroom when my parents got into an argument it scared me and I cried even after it was over and he didn't do anything, but it stuck in my mind and my dad had severe bipolar and was also drinking a lot. Please, for your children, don't do that get some help.
