You may want to be persistent with legal aid as they really can help in extreme situations like this where total custody has been cut.

And if your income is lower of course.

Check out www.MetroPolice.ca

Newest Postings....

Hope this helps.

Sounds like defamation of character from the said witness against you, I see a case there as well.
Make the CPS prove negligence,,,, seek a lawyer as soon as possible.

good luck to all of you! i feel all of your pains...both of my babies were taken away from me thanks to a controlling, abusive ex husband who filed false charges against me. I have not seen my children in 3 years (they are now 8 and 5). CPS took them from my home and placed them with their father. I was raising 2 babies on my own and didn't have a lot of money...their father did.

I went to the police station and was given an appearance ticket for two count of endagering the welfare of a child. I was also informed that CPS had placed my children in protective custody. they said that two people who were in the restaraunt during the argument had made statements that I shook my infant daughter and slammed my toddlers face into a table!! I assure that nothing at all like that happened. Three other people who were there signed statements in my favor.

When CPS took the children they took them to the emergency room and had them examined from head to toe. There were no signs of abuse. I have no past history of abuse. I have no criminal background or any signs of mental illness. CPS still will not let me see my children or talk to them. I think that since there was no physical evidence of abuse (not even a diaper rash!) and since there were statements in my favor I feel that CPS should return my children to me. I think they are being completely unfair and picking on me because I am a single mother.

Please advise me!!! Any help would be so appreciated. I feel like I'm being treated like a criminal and I all I did was argue in a public place!

To be perfectly honest the system is screwed up. I am a child welfare social worker in case management with families whose children are in state custody. The best thing you can do at this point is follow all of the rules. If they want you to attend parenting classes, drug/alcohol treatment, support groups, individual therapy, family therapy, obtain housing, obtain income, do UAs etc...do it!

The longer you fight it the longer this will go on. Even if you did absolutely nothing wrong just do whatever is asked and as fast as possible. The key is consistency and compliance. Provide documentation of every effort you make(and keep a copy for yourself and send one to your attorney and your child's attorney). Never miss an appointment or meeting, never miss a visit. Be as involved as possible in your children's lives. Ask about school, activities they are in.

The system isn't set up "innocent until proven guilty" it is exactly the opposite. Do everything you are asked. Inquire about a community resource guide, many services are offered on a sliding fee scale and many agencies will reimburse for classes or offer classes free of charge. If they ask you to stand on your head and sing the national anthem just do it!(and then report them to BSRB for unethical behavior!) Always always always be consistent, calm and compliant, it is by far the fastest and easiest way to get your children home where they should be.

If CPS ever comes to your home invite them in, be friendly answer all questions honestly, never appear that you are hiding anything. I have seen so many cases that have come in for reasons that seem absurd and then the child remains in custody simply because the family will not communicate with the agency. These kids NEED to be with their family, don't question what is asked of you even when it makes no sense. We as workers are bound by policies from SRS and court.

The system is not a passive progress...it is jacked up for the most part but we have to work with what we are given. Our job is to get your children home but it can't be done if families do not cooperate with what is asked whether you think it is legitimate or not. I have seen kids go home in less than a month and I have seen them wait and wait for years in foster care while the parents argue and fight and yell and place blame and it sucks. In my agency, the children aren't referred to me until they are removed from the home and in state custody, it wasn't my choice and I will bust my butt and put in 15 hour days if a parent is willing to do the same. If the parent does nothing there is no much I can do. And remember, the ultimate decision of the child coming home is up to the judge. Make your attorney work for you, if they aren't doing their job, report them and request a new one. I love nothing more than a parent who blows up my phone daily letting me know the effort they are putting in...these kids need to be at HOME!

And now I will step down from my soap box.
