Past Police Record used for current CPS case?
I have a police record for when the police came out to my house for when my husband abused me years ago. The officer asked me if I wanted him arrested and I said no. My daughter was 2 at the time when he did it but has no memory. But he now abuses her. CPS opened a case because of my call in complaint. Not severe but enough to open a case and do a home visit. I know they have to follow strict waysrules of determining if risk is obvious, possible or imminent. They interviewed my daughter who is 7 now and she really did not want to tell specifics. Just that they do time outs and "painful things". She was interviewed one day after the family and I think they manipulated her into not exposing details. My word against the family who has been abusing her with with some physical and definitely psychological, mental and verbal towards her..
But I have past records showing he abused me and my oldest daughter, his step about 4 and 5 years ago. roughly. There where incidents before but I did not call them in because I was afraid and it was just pushing me down. The last time years ago he kicked me literally when I as down. No arrest or charges. Hwever, can that show he is definitely capable? I told them details of what Ihave seen in the past few months for my daughter and what she has told me over the last few months. I had recently called CPS even though it did not seem like the severe cases they deal with. I held off for that exact reason.But I had to try anyway. He lives with his parents and other abuse is going on, again not severe but she should still live a life without abuse. He lives in a very nice community and the family seems too "dignified" to do such things. At least that is what they showed the worker. And they are very good actors.But it is a toxic and unpredictable environment behind the closed doors.
There are just too many details on what she told me and remembered but did not telll the worker. I absolutely believe her. Plus my details of what I saw.
I plan on sending those old records in as I get the records department to send them to me.(so glad they still had them) Otherwise it just looks like a "he said she said" case that has a custody/divorce case pending. You know how some of them go. But this is legit. Looks like they cannot go by gut feeling but a protocol of what is presented NOW. I think she believes me. The worker said she suggested family counseling for them all but so far there is none.
I do not want her yanked out of his house. Not at all but I want her to feel like there are those out there to protect her, and especially me. And yes, I do want to use it to get custody becasue I absolutely want to protect her from future harm. Any child deserves a peaceful home. I can't give her a big house but I can give her everything else he can and something he cannot. A peaceful home and never any fear of abuse. I'm her mother and can definitely prove I am totally fit to raise her.
Yes, she lives with him but not because I was deneid or i left or abandoned her. Very long story there. I never saw it when we were living together. But we havve a very close connection there with both her and him. Lots of visits, calls and video. My daughter and I have a very very close relationship. But I know now that the marriage will have to end to get her out of there and so be it. I knowthe court goes by how long a child has been living in the same home for awhile but so what if there is abuse.I know he adores her and she him.i know he can be a great dad. No doubt there. He just has no patience and neither do they. He loses it too much. Them as well.
Anyone have experience with CPS with no emergencies but still possible risk of escalating? Hitting the face, definitely spanking too hard and using so much fear to discipline her. Lots of yelling and screaming both at her and between all of them that she cannot get to sleep at night. Every child deserves safety in their life.

Re: Past Police Record used for current CPS case?
I wish to inform you that CPS investigates the charges and may take necessary reasonable steps including looking at past complaints while determining the truth. CPS take necessary steps as necessary so that danger to child may be determined. Further, if CPS does not take any steps then you may seek a restraining order or no contact order from court. The court always considers the best interests of the child. The court will speak to the child to ascertain the truth. The court will consider all the facts and decide the matter.
