CPS comes to your door and checks your fridge. What do they see?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
No time for fixing it. Show me a picture of your fridge right now. My pic will be in replies.

They will come by first and ask, if you tell them no they will get a warrant.

However it will be documented in your file that you were uncooperative so if your case isn't something that is open and shut that will be a factor in moving forward.

Quoting Kaelaasmom:

The police can't enter without a warrant, either. I am a mandated reporter. I know how CPS works.



Quoting Anonymous:

The police will make their way in for CPS. No warrant needed. It's for children's protection. If warrants were needed, CPS couldn't do their job.





Quoting Kaelaasmom:

Yes, yes they do. I do not have to let them in my home without a warrant.







Quoting Anonymous:

They don't need one.









Quoting Kaelaasmom:

They can't see my fridge from the hall of the apartment building, where they would be standing without a warrant.

I am aware of the fact that they will note it in the file. I still won't let any government representative enter my home without a warrant.

Years ago I had a case with CPS. They looked in my fridge all the damn time. It took like 10 seconds but as long as they seen food they were happy.

Quoting Mommy2justone:

Ha ha ha! I am a foster mom, they never looked in my fridge or cabinets. They give me the babies they take away from you. As long as you have food, they don't care if it is eggs, milk, cereal and cheese, they will not take your kids (unless there are other issues) . Most of the time they try to keep low risk cases in home, get assistance for them, and keep the kids out of Foster care. They have to train Foster parents, and there aren't enough of us , and pay for Foster placements.

some grapes, cheese sticks and coke.

I was heading to the grocery store today and then it started snowing hard all day (unexpectedly, it was only supposed to rain a bit TOMORROW).

When a cop is banging on your door because you are suspected of abusing your children, that's all they need to get in. I would rather believe cops on this one.

The police need a warrant to enter a private residence.
