I am concerned my neighbor will call (or has called) CPS on me. My neighbor is a drug dealer, crack and pharmaceuticals, for the past month my husband and a few other neighbors have been calling the police every time he goes to deal his drugs and last night I called the cops because I could smell him cooking his drugs from the commons area in our apartment complex.
Well, the cops come by and talk with him, they legally can't do anything more than that with out witnessing evidence and smell isn't evidence. When the cops talk with the drug dealer he tells them that my husband is a pedophile and mentioned something else about our children that I couldn't hear. After the cops talk to him I talk with them and try to explain the situation (that he is a drug dealer).
Now, I want to know what my rights are if CPS does come knocking on my door or what I can do to prepare for a possible CPS visit.
FYI: We are saving up to move.

I would clean the house for company. Other then that don't worry, CPS is looking for people hurting there kids they will know a bogus claim when they see one. Also the cops know a drug dealer when they see one, they probably didn't even listen to him, he isn't a creditable witness. They can verify some of his claims with out even having to talk to you.
