  • You don't need proof of anything to get a courtesy CPS visit...I'd report it and they can get the proof when they go visit. Your not the detective!

  • Being that I work for juvenile court and work with dependency cases all day long, YES YOU NEED TO REPORT THOSE PEOPLE IMMEDIATELY!!!!

  • Do you have proof of this? Or is this just hear say? If you have proof and seen this with your own eyes then Yes I would say a visit from children's protective services may be in order. Just be sure of these aligations.............

  • well even if you dont have proof isnt cps gonna check on all that anyway??
    maybe make a anonymous letter and tape it to thier door saying if they dont get thier crap in order, someone is going to call cps. i wouldnt go as far as calling someone when ppl can clean up thier ways after a threatening letter!
    if you still see everything going on, do it then

  • You do not need proof to call social services and make a concern report. Any one can call if they even SUSPECT that abuse or neglect is going on. All reports remain anonymous and the parents will not be given the name of the person who called. An intake worker who takes down the information will pass it on to a supervisor who in turn will make a decision if there is enough information to actually go out to the home. It is not the job of of any community member to actually investigate the situation. It is the job of social services to determine if the concern is accurate.

  • If this is true then it shouldn't even be in question...ask yourself..would you want your child living like this?
