They need a warrant?

Another post got me thinking about my own experience with cps a few years ago.

When someone makes false allegations against you should you not cooperate with cps? The articles I am reading are saying you should not let them into your house without a warrant and hire a barracuda of a lawyer. During my experience I did everything they asked and then some. I spent most of the day with my case worker, she was actually a lovely woman.

What are your experiences? Would you call a lawyer it invite them in?

I was told that by my case worker that she would go to the school and remove the kids until I cooperated with her.  And that the police and judge were on her side.  She's a bitch and I hope to never see her again.

Wow. Mine told me if I didn't cooperate she would have to involve the police but that is procedure and I really feel she was just making sure my children were safe. It all amounted to nothing but if they had tried to take my kids I have no doubt I would have gone to jail.

I never thought I would have to deal with them. But I was also a teen mom so many people felt I was too naive to parent correctly.

If they showed up would you invite them in or call a lawyer?

I think let the in only bc I would be prepared. That's if I answered the door....

If dh was home he'd tell them fuck off n he'd get a lawyer. That's just him though.

They showed up at my door and I let them in. Someone called and told them my kids were neglected all because they didn't have winter jackets on!! Of course CPS investigated but closed the case after talking with my kids, school, pediatrician. The worker was very nice and I got a letter about 2 weeks later saying the accusations were unsubstantiated.

Lol mine would have done the same. Luckily he was out if town or things might have gone differently. She seemed surprised that I was so willing to cooperate but I had nothing to hide.
