Refusing Aftercare with CPS

Has anyone refused aftercare when they got their kids back from CPS? I mean not letting the social worker visit your house or do back ground checks on your roommates. What happens?

You can't refuse. Unless the case is closed.

I don't know if you can refuse and keep your kids. It is probably a condition of their return. I'd tread very carefully. 

Besides, if you are doing what you are suppose to then why is it a problem?

That shouldn't be optional.

Why do you want to refuse?

I'm not doing it a family member is. I think it's stupid but wonder if they will do anything.

I would think it isn't optional. Why not accept the aftercare willingly. obviously there was concern for removal, so you may need the help making better choices for the child/children.

Sounds like a good way to get them taken away again.

I agree. I'm nervous because there is a court date this week. It's not me but a family member that's doing it.

aftercare is there to help you.  When you refuse help you can't be pissed off if the next time you get into trouble with CPS they are less than committed to helping you.  In my eyes, if you have nothing to hide, why refuse help?  Because you KNOW that the people you are running with are trouble???
