CPS Harassment in Michigan

If you or a loved one has been accused of child abuse or neglect, CPS will begin an investigation in order to determine if the claims are true. Unfortunately, CPS is often overzealous and even coercive in their investigation tactics and will stop at nothing to prove your guilt, even if you’re innocent. If a caseworker harasses you or your family at any point, you may want to consider taking legal action. The investigation process can be damaging to a family and traumatizing for the child, especially when the CPS worker is acting unjustly. Contacting an experienced defense attorney is the first step in battling back and shielding your family from the negative effects of CPS harassment. If you need help determining the best way to combat CPS, reach out to the Grabel & Associates team.

How to Fight CPS Harassment

CPS workers do not have immunity from prosecution, regardless of what they may claim. The state of Michigan has social service regulations in place to protect families from suffering wrongly. If a CPS worker violates these regulations, he or she can be punished. When you partner with Grabel & Associates, you can rest assured knowing that your lawyer will stand up for your legal rights. Our attorneys have handled numerous CPS harassment cases, and we know what it takes to be successful in and out of court as your case proceeds.

One of the most effective ways to battle CPS harassment is to file for a state administrative hearing. Your attorney will document the caseworker violating state regulations and put together the necessary documents to obtain justice. You can also write a Declaration of Facts that outlines the ways CPS is acting unjustly and present it to the judge at your next hearing. If your caseworker is reporting inaccurate statements or misrepresentations, you can work with your lawyer to create a list of objections and corrections to the social worker’s report. This report can be presented along with your Declaration of Facts to the judge in court. If the social worker lies in court, you can report him or her to the District Attorney’s officer. Perjury is a serious crime and should be handled accordingly.

How Many Times Can Someone Call CPS?

If a CPS worker keeps showing up at your house to investigate a new claim of child abuse or neglect, someone you know may be purposefully filing false reports. If you suspect someone has reason to wrongfully accuse you, you need to take action to protect yourself and your family. CPS is required to investigate all claims, and therefore may keep returning to your house unless something is done to prevent the wrongful accusations. If you know the person that is calling CPS on you, you may need to go to Family court and file a petition for an order of protection. If the individual files another report, you can have him or her arrested. Your attorney will walk you through all of the legal options and help you work towards your desired results.
