People need to be made aware of Child Protective Services. Do not call them just because you are mad at your partner. Do not sign or stipulate to a case plan. This is their tatic, they scare you into signing a case plan and once you sign that sheet of paper you are admitting that your are quilty. I HAD NO IDEA HOW POWERFUL THIS AGENCY IS AND HOW THEY GET AWAY WITH FALSE ACCUSATIONS TO LEGALLY KIDNAP YOUR CHILDREN. I'm not 100% sure, but have been told they receive money for each child that is placed in foster care and big $$$ if the Child has a disability. In our case Linda Haley petioned to remove our child, told the Judge all kind of lies. They used a drug screen against me that came back diluted, even though it was done at Paige, observed. Terri Cranford and Linda Haley said I had to have cheated added water to it or tried to flush out my system. I was at work when Linda called, so I had to go home pick up the others asked to take a drug screen and was at Paige Medical within an hour. My Attorney advised me to have a Hair Folice test done. I offered this to the Judge, but she would not allow stating these can be cheated on too. I work at a facility, subject to random drug screens, and in the 10 years I have worked there I have never failed a drug screen. CASA, the Attorney representing our child wanted him to remain in our home or shared custody with the in-laws. Linda Haley (the investigater) at the end of telling lies or exagerating the truth suggested the child be allowed to stay with us every other weekend due to the ties he has with us. The Judge, looking SHOCKED said WHAT! and said we would have to take a drug screen. Having nothing to hide I agreed. Well, the man that administered the DRUG screen was reading the test results and asked if I used Marijuana? I said NO! He said there's a light line by some kind of mark. I told him there is no way it's accurate, I am 100% clean, the test has to be wrong. I was ignored, in shock because I do not use drugs. When I told our Attorney (S Roberson, Baker, LA) that there was no way that the drug screen was accurate, she said, I'm sorry, there is nothing more I can do for you and dropped us right there in the court room. We told her before taking our case that OCS is trying to accuse us of using drugs, etc. I went after court to Paige Medical and had an observed Drug Screen done, It came back Clean. I hand delivered a copy of the test results to the OCS office. After all of this I tried finding another Attorney to represent us, but they were either costly $10k, did not seem qualified enough to represent us, and many told us that the drug screen is what hurt us. Some said once OCS has it out for you they will make your life a living hell. Failing the drug screen in court has been good gossip for people and ruined my reputation. I believe the worst of it all is the courts did not give us visitation. When the in-laws were given custod. We can not even see our child. I know he loves and misses us, and there is nothing we can do. The in-laws have money, influence, and have spread lies around about us. They use this power to their advantage. We allowed them to see their grandchild when he was in our custody, because we understad he loves them too. Who is this hurting the most? The Child. When he sees us out and about he comes running, giving us huggs. All we want is to be a part of his life and OCS took all of this away! JUST BE WARE OF THE BIG BAD WOLF. THIS IS ONE TIME I SAY DO NOT TELL THEM ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS. THEY WILL TWIST WHAT YOU SAY AND ADD TO FABRICATE A CASE AGAINST YOU. REMEMBER DO NOT SIGN THEIR CASE PLAN - IT IS TO TRICK YOU INTO ADMITTING QUILT AND ONCE YOU SIGN I DO NOT BELIEVE YOU ARE ABLE TO BRING IT TO COURT. MAKE SURE YOU SEE GOOD ADVISE FROM AN ATTORNEY IF OCS ENTERS YOU LIFE.
