I went through two lovely investigations with Family Services. They came to my house, walked through it. Interviewed the kids, neighbors and school as far as I know. They are not able to tell you anything about your own investigation, which I found rather funny. My best advice is to be pleasant, friendly and cooperative. Always be prepared for a surprise visit at your home and give friends and family a heads up in case they are contacted for an interview as well. I also made sure anyone that dealt with my child knew who I was and that i was a good mother. People like your sons Pediatrician , daycare workers etc....can be your best allies in this situation. Good Luck!!! I am sure you will be fin.
