I am in NO WAY an unfit mother.  My son's father is makigng alligations toward me and seeking full custody.  I am expecting a second visit from Children's Protective Services today.  I was working when they showed up yesterday.  Any advice?

As long as your not doing anything wrong you shouldn't have anything to worry about

They will tell you the "charges" and allow you to ask questions.
They will look around your home including closets pantry fridge ect.
They will photograph your child, take notes of what child is wearing the home ect.
Depending on the report and or home they may want you to take the kid(s) to doctor(s) apt(s)

If they feel your home is overly clean like you did knowing they were coming they may do another surprise visit

Is your house clean? Is there food in the fridge and cupboards? Does your son have regular medical care?  Is he in daycare?  What's the child's schedule like?  What is a typical day like for you and your son?  Those are just some of what they will ask you, and do a home inspection as well.

Yes. Don't offer them any information. Just prove you are a good mom. They like to twist any info you give them.

What are the claims?  Just be honest and you should be fine.

I think I might mention you're going through a custody fight to the worker who comes out.  They probably deal with this *all* the time.

You must be a wreck.  At least, I would be, and I have nothing to hide.  Still, scary.  :(
