Have you ever had CPS called on you?
If it's a false claim, can you fight it?

  • My X called once to be a %&^$...they came out unannounced however nothing ever came of it because my DH is OCD so the house is ALWAYS in immaculate condition...The CPS worker actually commented on how the house looks like no one lives in it because of DH's ability to keep it clean! You can fight it if it is false though...I do believe they files charges against my X and he had to pay a hefty fine for false reporting...He was angry because it was about a $3500 fine.

  • No but my ex threatened to once and I proactively talked to a friend of mine who works in CPS. Unless there is a documented immediate danger to the children, they do an investigation before acting on a call.

  • Yes, I have them called on me often. It is always false and the caseworker comes out and verifies all is well. They can not open an investigation without a good reason.
