  • Why would CPS be searching through anyone's stuff? I didn't know they did that.

  • On a visti they will tour the living space. That would include yours since you share living space. They will look in the refrigerator and cupboards (food)

    Do have any idea what the allegation is? That may have some bearing on what they focus on.
    I our case, 3rd party res ponders, that spoke to us, took a quick look around and left. No complaints had been made, however.

  • If it is somewhere the child could reasonably go then they can look..... If they will or not depends on the allegations and what they find in the rest of the house....

  • Depends on what the report was about. If the report was that she is a drug user and that she beats her kids etc. then your custody could be jeopardized as well if you continue to live with her once the report is verified. If it is that she doesn't feed or bath the kids then they will look around the house and cupboards etc. and probably want to talk with you as you would have the most knowledge.

  • Yes. They are allowed to search your room if they feel the need to do so.
