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!!!!!!
i had my kids taken away because of jealousy issues between me and my mom ...she was verbally physically and mentally abusive to my kids...she has had them removed from her care and went to jail for chocking my child...she has since been diagnosed with mental problems ...
These people must be stopped! They totally destroyed my family!
Wrongfully took my 19 month old daughter from me based on my exes lies and no investigation was made in the state of NC. Back in 2012 and they were supposed to investigate within 72 hours of the allegations being made and still has failed to do so and my daughter is suffering PTSD and is a victim of Parental Alienation Syndrome. Nothing worse that suffering a loss of a child that isn't dead.
My kids were removed 2 yrs ago by 2 cps workers who said they received a complaint on me.Well I found out they did 9 months prior.They invited themselves in my home and informed us if we called the police it would make it harder for us to get our kids back.We had out 2 youngest taken from our home and they were told they were being taken to McDonalds for lunch and then coming back home.My 2 oldest were removed from school,and all of this The paperwork was got at 2:59 and 3:01pm and my kids were taken at 1:30pm.Now they say I act like I don't want my kids coz I don't check on their well being.The actual truth the worker is not telling is that I was stopped from attending all dr's,dental, and therapist appointments.I asked to speak to their teachers and was informed my lawyer had their grades.I call the foster home to speak to the kids and get no answer or get hung up on.Something needs to be done especially since the judge has stood up in court and called me a sorry*****mother,and told my boyfriend he hitched his buggy to the wrong horse.The judge listens to all cps has to say but will not let me open my mouth.
Our grand daughters were taken from our home last night after being with us for a year and was going to be put in a shelter, then foster care untill we finally found another family member that would take them temporarily....because it was decided for us that we needed a break. We never asked for any such thing. We had some issues, concerns, disagreements with Casa, the CPS caseworker, and the childrens attorney. We were not being heard regarding concerns of our grand daughters. We were labeled by them as disrepectful, rude, and words twisted. They said we were informed when we weren't . Judge Clark said her team and the grandparents are not getting along so she decided we all need a break and was going to send them to a shelter in a different school system... REALLY ?? and they claim they are react in the best interest of the children. We are seeking legal counsel now, We should have had an attorney all along.
CPS needs to be scrapped completely. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Let only law enfor enforcement to follow due process of alleged child abuse. Mandated reporting procedures need to be fine tuned, it has swung too far back on the pendulum.
Cps needs to leave happy families a lone
I have a friend who lost her little girl to them (unjustly) and was mortified to see so many injuries on her while she was in foster care.
Cps violated my rights and tried to take my child shortly after birth due to me being physically handicapped today my children are 23 years old and 19 years old they are grown healthy and smart children, I am against CPS violating parental rights and it needs to come to an end I stand with all the good parents
CPS needs reform OR removed!!!
utah dcfs isevil church and government do not mix any young single nonmormon mother is not safe quit stealing our babies now
cps have take my grandchildren and adopted them off far away to some family. the lied on me in court said I wasn't able to take care of my grandchildren and the doctor letter was given to them and they lies falsify lies on me in court just to adopt them off for money for their these children cries because the thought they were coming home to live with their grandmother. they also made my daughter sign some paper saying the next baby she have they will take from her and make you pay child support if you did not sign these documents these are mentally ;abusers these is not you'll blood children these belong to their bloodline. we need to make a change. my daughter is mentally abruse she have got help, went to classes they hearing here say. they said I never, never, ever get my grandchildren.
CPS truly is incompetent in their actions and sends people to your home to investigate and accuse good parents of bad things. They take kids from good parents and leave children that are in bad positions. Stop them before they destroy our future generations....enough is enough!!!!!!!!!
CPS is a freaking Joke!!! It's taxpayers money keeping these thieves employed!!!
