We have laws in place that CPS feels they are immune to. It is time that someone does something to help the children and parents that are being harmed by a system out of control.
Please overhaul and expose all the corruption in this system. Then we need to protect our children using the justice system that's already in place. If someone is guilty of harming a child, let them know what their crime is, have a warrant when they come to the home for the children, let them be tried in a transparent court by a jury of their peers (fellow parents), and let the justice be swift. The current system sets children up for legalized human trafficking - and we know that is a huge injustice towards our smallest and most innocent citizens.
these people need cameras on them! they lie! I experienced this when I reported suspected sexual abuse.. i knew what the mother did as child told me,but i had no idea about the step aunt! child told me 2 days later about that! she told me call lawyer stop visits! long story short, she changed after meeting with the mother and her ex-cop dad.. then they said i was lying and she said that i TOLD the child to say that! they throw their threats and diagnosis out just because of who they believe-even with proof of the mothers violence, they don't care! they need reform .especially with law- enforcement in the family! they should have some fines and jail to make them investigate better!
My kids were taken in 2011 by my family with the help of DCFS who my aunt (a lawyer) use to work for. They came to my home with bogus accusations on several occasions prior to my mom and aunt taking them in 2011 all accusations were unfounded. In 2011 my family had my youngest sons therapist call DCFS to say that the young man (18, son of a friend, living in an abusive household) that my husband I decided to help get his GED and then get him into college so he could make his own way was accused of molesting my youngest son. My youngest son Matthew (Autistic with several other disabilities) if at all molest could have possibly been molested by the kid we were helping. How? because the 18 year old didn't come to us until June 2010. My mother had the same therapist who called in the report in 2011 call me back in January 2010 while I was at work and threaten me that if I didn't turn over Matthew to my mother and let her take care of him then she would call DCFS and tell them I was neglecting a disabled child by not allowing him the one on one attention. So because I didn't know the laws and I had been threatened so many times with DCFS by family I believed her and I turned my son over to my mother in January 2010. So as you can see it allegations of 2011 are impossible. That is only one of the allegations they made up against me the others are even more just as distasteful and untrue but there was nothing I could do. On July 5th my mother came to me (in tears) she told me that she had talked to the DCFS case worker in charge of my case and they told her that if I didn't sign custody of my kids over to her then they would take my kids, split them up into 3 different homes and stick them in foster care. I was so distraught by the thought of this that I burst into tears and believed every single word my mom told because why not she's my mom why would she lie to me. So under coercion and duress I signed the temporary custody papers that my mother just so happened to already have drawn up and with her when she came to my house. The order was signed at 2am in the morning on the 6th and my kids were gone on the 7th. The DCFS case closed on that very same day (no abuse founded) but by then it didn't matter cause my kids were gone. I've gone to court several times and each time DCFS has sent a case worker to go against me. Even the last order that was written up by the magistrate is was so full of lies and wrong information that will now be pasted on to future hearings to stand against me even though it's wrong. I have tried writing to my House Rep. Senators, the Inspection General even the President to tell and show just how corrupt this system is, all the way up to the judicial system and yet I get nothing because no one cares. My lawyer claims this is the most "****ed up" case he has ever seen in all his years of practice and he can't believe that all these people are getting away with this. It's the kids who are suffering here but not a single one seem
Stop the madness!bring our kids home!!
I had my Children taken from me in 2003. I was charged with neglect,although later in the Virginia Supreme Court they dismissed and reversed my charges. The family court judge still did a TPR. MY BOYS WERE ADOPTED. I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIND THEM SINCE.
cases should NOT be allowed to continue when a family member calls cps with lies an false allegations. cps is required to investigate an if no proof of abuse or neglect has occurred the case is supposed to be dismissed. but that is not my case. they have allowed a family member to make false allegations an lies against me, they refused to follow agency guidelines an procedures an the laws, even the court does this. how can they legally get away with this when it is based on lies an falsities with no due process an many rites bein violated?

Over half of the removals are wrong removals!!! It is a legal way for the government to to traffic children. It is totally evil,corrupt and disturbing that they the government can do this and pray on single, young or uneducated citizens of the matter away from good homes with living, great and strong mothers and place them into unhappy, dark, unnecessary conditions. It destroys the parents and the children beyong control.!
I would love to talk to someone, who has some experience, about my case. Is that possible? Need help badly.
Actual timeline of Lexington KY case.


There are no reports of drug usage, alcohol abuse or domestic violence in our home. The Department continues to suggest that there is violence in the home for no reason.

The initial visit by the Department with no notice that was refused entry by maternal grandmother was within our legal rights as there was no warrant. As a result we were threatened with removal if we did not cooperate.

There is no proof of imminent danger arising from missed doctor appointments; we normally reschedule around work.

KVC has continually submitted unfounded reports of feeling threatened by the family. No threats were ever made towards KVC workers.

In December as we were planning to move to a more feasible residence since the Department repeatedly accused us of not having a large enough home for the children we began to pack our belongings into boxes. There has been Department reports that we were living amongst boxes that should be reasonable considering the imminent move to a new residence. These reports have been held against us insinuating that we were untidy which to my knowledge does not grant the State grounds for removal since there was no threat of danger present.

DCBS Supervisor has a close personal relationship with the teachers of the children at Arlington Elementary. When issues would arise with the children in school the teacher would notify the Supervisor before the parents. We would receive calls and visits to the home informing us of small behavior issues. I have visited the classroom on several occasions to talk with the child and have seen more than one unruly child in the classroom.

A childís tonsillectomy procedure was completely normal and she was never in any life threatening situation as reported by the Department. Dehydration and malnutrition is completely normal within forty eight hours of the procedure. Child was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure as soon as the opportunity was available and was deemed to be in good health other than mild dehydration. The Department has repeatedly stated that this was a life threatening situation.

We have completely rearranged our lives to allow for Departmental involvement. This has forced a great deal of financial and emotional stress upon all parties involved. Father has had to give up his career in the transportation industry by coercion from the Department requiring him to be home more often and take a great deal of time off of work to satisfy the concerns of the Department.

Maternal grandmother has had to give up her home and lifestyle as well as possible marriage due to the Departments request that she reside with the family at all times. Technically this has caused us to violate our lease agreement at our residence by allowing another person to remain in our home for a length of time and could cause possible termination of our lease agreement thereby rendering us without a home.

We didnít get to see our children
CPS abuse needs to STOP! Our nation's children have become a commodity.

Suppose to be child protective services not child explortation service, cover ups and defiantly not sit on your butts and forget to do a proper investagation because of you think one parent saying your daughters in kindergarten while she is actually in preschool isn't odd why wouldn't you investagate ?
I AM SO GLAD THAT I FOUND THIS SITE!!! I HAVE BEEN DEALING W/ C.P.S FOR OVER A YR. AND I FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE ELSE WHO IS AND HAS BEEN VICTIMIZED BY THE ABUSE AND POWER THESE LITTLE PEOPLE HAVE WITH NO ACCOUNTABILITY. IT IS REALLY SAD THAT OUR COUNTRY IS THE MONEY BEHIND THEM. HELL IF I HAD KNOWN ABOUT A GREAT PAYING JOB W/BENEFITS, MEDICAL, AND COMPLETE CONTROL AND NO CONSEQUENCES OF DOING EVIL. I WOULD HAVE STAYED IN SCHOOL AND GOT BETTER GRADES INSTEAD OF GETTING MARRIED AND HAVE A FAMILY. BUT WHAT DID I KNOW, IT WAS JUST THE ALL AMERICAN DREAM GIRLS HAD. TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF VICTIMIZED FAMILIES GROWING UP IN AMERICA. I PROMISE TO FIGHT UNTIL IS STOPS. YOU MATTER, AND I WOULD NEVER WANT ANYONE TO GO THROUGH THE PAIN WE HAVE. WATCH OUT C.P.S, I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!
I have a mass evidenced case . . . to my all integrity where I myself worked for DOJ and for DHS - CPS and an attorney subpoenaed records for me from Norhtampton County, PA DHS - CPS . . with horrors clearly indicating mass corruption in what ** only portions ** they did send . . . county is refusing Right to Know Requests . . . or my requests to judges as it is clear from a letter I received July 2014 that there was mass secret communications and manipulations done to relocate my children in 2010 . Relocation is another ' scheme ' code word for Judicial kidnapping. This is a process predominantly known as divide and conquer . . secret meetings and discussions and ** PSYCHOPSEMA ** fraud document creation. I have proof in my case on one subpoenaed document alone called an " Accounting of Disclosires -- Access Log ". This log ALONE contains *** over 40 of MY OWN CO-WORKERS' names *** at Northampton County, PA DHS-CPS and other County agents and agencies and officials. Also I was able tog et some proof of payments PROVING MY OWN EMPLOYER EVAN AT THE TIME PAID MY OWN CO-WORKER COLLEAGUES !! This got the President judge who initiated action WITH NO ONE EVER LISTING US FOR CUSTODY COURT . . . and I had no instances for claims of CPS against me but we were targeted as my co-worker from CPS was clear aiding and abetting my serious abuser WELL EVIDENCED incapable husband / children's father. I had reported this man for stalking us back in 2009, 5 months before it is displayed the secret meetings and ' DOCKET SWITCH ' from PFA list to custody docket was perpetrated on this safe, responsible, innocent protective mother and my three defenseless minor children. Serious abuser father / husband was goign to go to jail . . . and my children were relocated in an act to stop that from happening . . . and as a means to ' gag order ' my children who were WHISTLEBLOWING on what the COUNTY EMPLOYEE ** county paid ** SERIOUS CONFLICT EVALUATOR *** who was professionally aligned with me in a grievance matter against MY EMPLOYER DHS-CPS for hostile work environment and intimidation/isolation. They had my serious abuser husband secretly going to this man also in Dec '09 . . . and more 'ammo' was aligned then TO ENDANGER MYSELF AND MY THREE INNOCENT MINOR CHILDREN. Then, when he got the notice of non-payment of support and to be listed to go to jail --- Northampton County, PA President Judge Kimberly McFadden held secret meetings . . county employee put his name in to represent me but never advised me not provided me a copy ... was having secret discussions with my husbnad's attorney . . . refused to tell me anything about the discussions ... filed a 1/2 false [ making it vilifying ] brief behind my back I did not know about until after the secret meetings . . . and without any due process . . judge ordered a
CPS in Tuolumne County has taken our baby Gabriel without cause and did not follow the important protocol of finding family before sending the baby straight to foster care with a single man in a house with no other children. Family is waiting and wondering why they were by passed without any reason. CPS uses suppositions and untruths to build cases instead of facts. CPS is cruel and not compassionate with families in deep grief and fear for their child's safety. Stop CPS please. Pray for the little children and all of us who are their victims.

My brothers and I were removed from our loving home by CPS 20 years ago. This kind of thing has gone on too long.
I have had my 3 year old stolen by cps and adopted out.
I support this petition. I am a mother whose children were medically kidnapped. - See more at:http://medicalkidnap.com/2015/02/28/was-medical-kidnap-in-washington-state-a-cover-up-for-medical-malpractice/
My daughter has been dealing with Nevad CPS for a year and a half. They just refuse to give the baby back. My daughter is a good mother and ios in a stable household. She went to jail for a traffic ticket. It is sa nightmare. I spoke to the case worker supervisor and she said my daughter needed to be taught a lesson
We want our children back!! Stop legal trafficking of OUR children to line the judges and CPS pockets
As someone whose entire extended family was destroyed I can tell you the CPS does little good to make lives better for children. They routinely cause mayhem and separation instead of using their money and training to keep families together. All for the love of money instead of any concern for the child. Title IV funding's mandates are: "The more kids you take, the more money you will make and if you return them home you lose all present and future funding for all returned kids..." How can that be anything but incentive to destroy kids and their family's lives?
If false or frivolous claims are made and ruled out, there need to be fines or penalties for the people who make those reports!
cPS needs to be overhaled, imunity taken away, case and supervisiors and the judges they own NEDD TO GO TO JAIL!!!!
My home state took 9 of my children n made it impossible to get them back they kept the case open for 2years i did everything they asked n they took my rights n adopted my children out because they didnt like the job i had to provide for them
They have kidnapped all my children.
The 12th Judicial District, Rio Grande and Alamosa County, Colorado CPS, Colorado Office of Child Representative GALs, and Respondent mothers' court appointed counsel (7 out of the 8) caused irreparable damage to my family, especially to the lives if my eldest daughter and her children!!! They all MUST be held accountable for their blatant violations of Constitutional Rights, federal laws, and federal Acts (RICO) and imprisoned accordingly!
We all have seen the damage done first hand. Awareness is rising, let us not lose direction and keep this momentum going until CPS is realigned with the PROPER priorities, saving abused children and NOT economic incentive.
CPs is a child profiting organization that steels our child they do whatever they want say whatever they want and can take our children whenever they want we need to fight back this is not right there making money with our children !!! We need to fight back I for one am tired of this injustice if we don't do nothing it will never stop families are going to keep getting torn apart .... Stand up for what is right stand up for you children !!!! It needs to end now !!!!!!!!!
After meeting my wife shortly after her daughter was taken by CPS, I can tell you for a fact she was not a drug user as CPS claimed, not an alcoholic as CPS claimed, and not an abuser as CPS claimed. Yet they took her daughter and refused to let her return home. My wife's only crime? She suffered from depression and anxiety. Now her daughter is forced to live with someone that mentally abuses her, lives in filth, has her medicated to maintain compliance, and nothing is done. This needs to be put to an end. CPS can not continue to operate above the law. This is kidnapping plain and simple, if anyone else were to do what they do, we would be in prison for the rest of our lives. It's time to put the right ones in jail.
Each potential CPS agent and foster parent should undergo sex offender assessments.
Increasing a child's chances of being raped, sodomized or murdered by 600% is NOT looking after a child's welfare.
