“Pssst…CPS is at the door.”
We check the search terms which people use to find our site. I have some concerns and comments about some specific searches.
Often, people want to know what CPS is allowed to do or what they should do if If CPS knocks on your door. You do not have to answer the door for CPS and you do not have to answer any of their questions. Even if they come with the police. The police are there to protect the CPS worker from you. If they had reasonable cause to enter or to remove your child, they would have a warrant they would not be knocking. The fact that they are knocking tells you that they need permission from YOU to enter. When you let them in, you will give them free reign to make up stories, twist your words around and remove your child. I wouldn’t be rude or mouthy to these people however, stand your ground reasonably.
