If DSS visits, do I have a right to get a copy of the concerns that were alleged against my family?

Thank you for any help.

  • you will get a letter with a quote of the complaint but it will not say who called them

  • Yes you do but not the "who said it" information that is confidential to the person who made the report

  • DSS should tell you why they are there. Cooperate and you will be fine. Issues start with DSS when you don't cooperate.

  • i dont think so..cuz the person who called about you will be on the paper, and they cant release that to anyone

  • well I would think that they could release the cause without releasing the contact. the only thing I can think of is that if you *know* why they are there, you could hide stuff. So not releasing it makes sense.

  • When they close the case you'll get a whole bundle of papers all about it.
