Write up a letter on your computer, send a letter to the caseworker, certified mail. If it wasn't formalized by the courts, then you shouldn't have to do so either. Try to get mom to be cooperative, but don't hesitate to call the police when you go to pick her up. Take her birth certificate, your ID, and any papers concerning this issue in case your mother tries to pull a fast one and claim that she has CUSTODY, which must be approved by the courts.

Eljay is correct. If you have signed a voluntary agreement you can cancel it at any time. You are not required to notify anybody. However, If CPS believes they have enough for an emergency removal, they may do that. If not, and they believe they have enough for a removal, they will then file in court and see what the judge says. Only you know what is on your case file and the basis for the placement.
