Might be a stupid question but...
I have 3 stepkids. They are here every other weekend even if that (that's by their mother's choice and we don't have the money to fight it yet). And I have my 2 kids.
CPS was called on either us (more so my hubby) side or my stepkids mother side. They won't tell us who the case was started for but the fact that it's between his kids and their mother. Nothing about me my name isn't even on the paperwork besides a person living in the home.
I understand they need to check out both house and they are more then welcome too. And that they will talk to the kids.
However, I really don't want them talking to my oldest son. CPS has already talked to my stepkids.
Can I tell them not to talk to my son or do I have to allow it? Sorry so long just to get to the question.

I respect the fact you don't want your child to be dragged into the drama but it really is in the children's best interest to talk to all people living in the home. Yes, you have the right to refuse. They also have the right to get a family court judge to order that he be interviewed...and then you are trumped. In the interest of saving time, money, and just the hassle....I'd let my child be interviewed.
