Why Can CPS Remove My Child from My Home?

If a CPS agent receives an anonymous tip that your child may be in some kind of danger, he or she will likely investigate the claims made. CPS agents treat every allegation as if it is true, which is why you should take all accusations seriously. You should reach out to a skilled CPS attorney the moment you learn you are under investigation, regardless of how absurd the claims may seem to you. It’s important to remember how much is at stake in cases involving CPS. CPS agents have the power to remove your child or multiple children from your home, potentially traumatizing them and destroying your family’s future. The sooner you connect with a seasoned defense attorney, the better your chances are of receiving a favorable result.

What to Do if CPS Agents Show Up at Your Door

If a CPS agent shows up at your home, be courteous, but remember that you do not have to cooperate fully. Social workers may ask to come inside or speak with your children alone, but you don’t have to let them unless they have a warrant or court order. In most situations, the less you say to them, the better off you are. It’s best to speak with an attorney before conversing with CPS agents to ensure your legal rights are upheld.

If you can get the name and number of the social worker that came to your home, your attorney can handle most of the conversations for you, protecting you from being misunderstood or misquoted. The Grabel & Associates team knows what it takes to protect you from overzealous CPS agents, and will do everything in their power to clear your name. If you want to keep your child or children in your home, call our defense firm right now. It’s never too early to start building a strong defense.

Common Reasons Why CPS Agents Remove Children From Their Home

You may think that CPS agents could never take your child from you, but there are several common behaviors that could potentially lead to a visit from a social worker:

  • Leaving your child alone while you’re at work.
  • Skipping regular doctor visits or failing to provide adequate care.
  • Spanking your children or causing non-accidental physical injury.
  • Neglecting your child’s emotional needs.
  • Indulging in drugs or alcohol in front of your children.
