Arizona CPS started an investigation against my husband. Only taking the mothers side of the story. They dropped the case because it was unfounded. But not before they threaten my husbands Medical license, our foster care license, and anything they could use as leverage. They told us they would drop our case of we just did what the mother wanted and that was move out of state. Then the case work helped the mother flee the state. We have been awarded sole custody (family court) but because the mother is now in hiding we haven't seen our daughter in a year.
I had a son pass away of RSV. He passed away at home overnight. I took him to the doctor three days before and told me mild cold he would be fine. Because he passed away at home cps took my other son away and tried accusing me of being at fault. Autopsy proved otherwise. I got my son back 3 1/2 months later after countless hours of classes and counseling. Cps needs to be reformed.
I am fighting cps now trying to get my grand kids back after over a year, I agree that thing need to change in the cps system,!!
Please do what is right and protect children that have no voice.
Both parties, innocent and guilty deserve true justice.
They took my 1 1/2 yr old last year because i didn't have a stable place to live. They could have helped me get stable which they are "supposed" to do instead they took her from me. She is finally out of foster care and thankfully with her dad. But they traumatized her and my son who they did not take because he wasn't a baby. He was 14 at the time. I also have been traumatized by this and now in a severe depression. I don't have the money to see her each Saturday,she lives 3 hours from me. If they would of just helped me she would be with me. I was coerced into signing something by a worker who got promoted right after she put my daughter in the system. The public health nurse was upset and told me off the record that she butted heads with cps. She concluded to tell me that cps gets paid 18 to $20,000 for each little white baby they adopt out. I feel i was railroaded by cps and i feel for each parent that has had their child taken unwarranted. I suggest not signing anything until you know your rights as a parent. Dont let them scare you and make you panic thinking if you dont do what they say your child will be removed. I didn't know my rights and i panicked. Please if you have a cps case get familiar with your rights as a parent
Its time for someone to take a look at cps and make them accountable for wreaking famlies

I'm still fighting to get my child back. since she has been in foster care, she has been molested, physically abused with bruises, emotional traumatized by the foster parents and alienated from her other family members. I want CPS stopped.
my children were taken for our water being shut of we had hit a hard time with six children and roomate who was helping just moved out and so a so called friend decide to call children service out of spite well to get to the they have changed the alligations four times from they took them cause we were crack heads then my child played with knifes how i ask they locked with the pots and pans and they dont have the code now its for a dirty house no food wrong they have seventy five other case closed on us and all the workers say it is to clean and theres no neglect and children happy but they still want quit its harressment after harressment an now they have my babies and i cant afford atorney and i complete in case plan and ots not good enough help
If this had been in place my husband wouldn't have had to endure having his daughter taken away as retaliation for him standing up for and attempting to protect his little girl from her abuser, her vindictive biomom!
CPS should not have Federal Immunity in court when they break the law and the constitution. They need to be accountable just like the rest of us.
My Granddaughter was taken away from me without warrant then placed in a foster home. I had supervised visitation Im now being told by CPS she is going to be adopted, when I asked the worker why can't I have her back she then told me since she was removed I could not get her back. I was the one that took her to the hospital after noticing bruising and scars from a belt, my daughter then took all the charges for her and her companion 2nd degree child abuse and neglect. I solely believe my rights have been violated in many ways and I want my granddaughter back, i raised her from birth.
My daughter is in CFS in California. They have yet to prove any of their allegations yet they still have her in custody. My social worker knows that my finances are not very good at this time. They are using it against me and the attorneys they have appointed me have stopped corresponding with me. I am appalled at how they have treated me and my family. I also have three children in my home currently being cared for.
I want my grandchildren back that DCF MA. stole because a nut made a fake complaint. DCF/CPF needs termination completely. Rebuild with out all the corruption. Why are they not regulated? How could a system so broken not have regulation, it disgusts me.
Cps took my baby girls an kept them adopted them out. Reason there father went to the e.r by ambulance. No one was available, I was not able to be reached. He was only there a few hours. Made our lifes worse. How do you as the federal government allow this give them money to kidnap and kill our babies.
You have allowed them to over power judges. Shame on you, you have disgraced this country.
I want my baby girls back. NOW!!!!!!
This needs to change. More harm is done to families from CPS than actual children who are victums of true abuse. There are no repercussions for the case workers, they twist words, the judge agrees and end of story. There is no fair trial, you are guilty. Families are are out thousands of dollars, and destroyed by CPS. The same person who wants the child & job security is the same person a family is required to work with. Meanwhile, the caseworker is twisting everything they possibly can against the family. Ultimately a win against CPS is still a huge loss for the family. There are no consequences to the social worker who loses to a family who never broke a law. The agency doesn't even acknowledge their bad decision or the workers' lack of integrity. CPS does not care for the BEST INTEREST of he CHILD. Our caseworker wanted to have our daughter live with her drug abusing aunt! Anything so she wasn't in our family where she had to obey the rules.
My children have been removed after we won our dcfs appeal my 3 year old son was abused by his foster parents he is now in a safe home with family with my oldest child her foster parents are telling her lies about her dad and I like we don't love or care about her and that we don't want to make sure she eats while in their care now she don't want to see us I haven't seen her since august 29th this is call allienation of affection and the department don't know weather they r going to place her some where else or not
Stop the abuse to innocent families.
On two occasions arrest warrants were issued, based on false statements made by CPS, based on CPS telling the judge that the child is in imminent danger. Warrant was issued, and child brought to court and when asked what was the imminent danger, CPS could not articulate any danger. On the contrary, they reported no safety concerns whatsoever. CPS engages in this pattern, they seek an arrest warrant, based on imminent danger, and when child is in court they say they do not have any safety concerns. What gives?
I have my niece and nephew through Kinship care in Texas and parent reunification can't happen. CPS is blocking me from being foster certified by using a PROVEN false/positive drug test against me; therefore, I can't adopt. This is in retaliation due to my advocating for CPS reform, and the fact that I am clearly not intimidated by them. This IS NOT in the kids best interest. Just one example in thousands of the omnipotence CPS believes it has. STOP THE ABUSE BY CPS!
3 cases 9 of my grandchildren Lost them all. One court case record states "child was not taken for abuse or neglect". He was 2. Next time I saw him he was 19. And for what? CPS's GREED FOR THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR.
My kids were taken because of a medical misdiagnosis... Took me 6 months to get them back, but even after CPS had the diagnosis they still didn't drop it... A judge had to see our case in a 7 day trial; we won!
Our kids where taken because of a false statement and we are being forced to jump through hoops. Please help us
Birmingham al took newborn I visited one day and went into early labor had seven pound son five week early. I did use once the day before I had son. I know I was wrong there, however they wouldn't let any family member friend or dad even take him back to tn where we live or my bf who live in Alabama and at court said they would do icpc but wanted to wait 60 days.
it's about time!
it's about time!
The children/kids that need help never get help.
STOP child abuse!
I would never have believed any of this until they stole my beautiful granddaughter and denied me the right to adopt her.
CPS in Texas is out of control especially in Amarillo. please crack down on them. They are doing more damage than good.
STOP FEDERAL INSENTIVES!!!!!!
