My brother lives down in FL and he and his g/f has had their 1 yr old son taken away by CPS last month. They had a guy they knew stay a few days while his new place was getting ready. One day this guy comes back to get his stuff and nobody was home at the time, so he decided to take a few other items. My bro';s g/f came home early and caught him, and he beat her up, fractured her arm and bruises all over her. They guy is lucky my bro wasn't there or there would have been a different story. She pressed charges and then found out he took her gun and reported that and now they guy is in jail. The guy's g/f got PISSED! So she got even and called CPS. She claimed my brother was neglecting his son, doing drugs like meth, coke etc.....drinking all the time.....My bro smokes pot and thats it. The CPS agent came to the house and saw alcohol bottles lining the wall., My brother collects rare bottles from all over the US and so yes there were a few alcohol bottles on the wall. So now CPS wants both of them to attend all these classes. Well my brother's g/f left last week to move back with her parents and saying she wants to sign away her parental rights. How will this affect this case with CPS and my brother? They only get an hour 1/2 a few days a week. When my bro's ds got taken, they put him in foster care and found these people were not taking care of their baby very well. So somehow, my brother managed to get his son into the custody of his boss at his work (they are good friends) so that is good news. But I am wondering, will it be harder for my brother to regain custody of his son since his g/f decided to be a dead beat mom and left at the 1st sign of trouble?? He is jumping thru all the hoops without argument, although he did get a lawyer cause he thinks the CPS agent went overboard and took his son away without investigating thoughly first. So his g/f has not attended any of these classes but he has. What are his chances of regaining custody?
He is an excellent father, I am sooooo proud of him for stepping up to the plate and being such a wonder father. I just CPS thinks so.
PS..I think this might be a backlash of the Casey Anthony case cause I know they dropped the ball with her too....
