As a former child abuse investigator, I feel it is only fair to educate the public about things that can help and insure family safety. I may no longer be with the department due to differences in opinions, but for the most part I want to still help out in my community. We need to educate parents on the various reasons behind CPS showing up at the door.
You might not think that blunt was a big deal when your smoked it at five months into your pregnancy, but you can get CPS called on you if your baby has a positive meconium test. What is a meconium test? The meconium is the first poop from your baby when he or she arrives in the world. This means if you have taken anything like opiates, marijuana, methamphetamine,amphetamines, cocaine, PCP, LSD, even marijuana it will show up and CPS will get called. You have to have prescriptions for any kind of hydrocodone or any medications that will show up. If you do not have those prescriptions, you are looking at troublee. You can’t do drugs.
CPS gets referrals from anyone and everyone. Most CPS cases are false allegations, but that doesn’t mean that the investigation will not carry on. DO NOT REFUSE TO TALK TO CPS or at least call your lawyer before you refuse. If a refusal is given and the allegation is a drug, physical abuse, sexual abuse, or other serious allegation, CPS can go to court and get a court order. I knew of workers who wouldn’t warn people about that outcome and those cases ended in removals when they could have been something else. I myself have had to explain the outcome to indivisibles who first refused, but later they were able to understand and their cases were closed with safe findings within a month. If you have nothing to hide, let the investigation take place. It’s like I used to tell my clients, we are in a river and the only way out is to keep moving.
There will be cases that are clear removals and the parents will be found in violation of the rules, but for those issues that aren’t clear removals and that can be worked out by community services or lessor CPS services, make sure to ask about those services. Until then, be safe and take care of those babies.
These are just a few of the reasons why CPS might show up on your
