After Texas CPS received a report from an ex spouse regarding three children in my home they showed up at my home and after I voluntarily allowed them to speak to one of the children in question to find out what was going on the case worker went within five minutes from she felt the children were safe from being questioned and in a clean safe enviroment to stay in before their CAC interview to FORCING me to sign a document stating they could remove my child from the home. I asked what would happen if I didnt sign and was told they would take her out of my home anyhow, so I signed to allow my child to go to a relatives home where I knew the child would be safe. I now know that without a court order you DO NOT HAVE TO ALLOW CPS into your home and if they show up DO NOT DO SO or allow them to speak with your children without you or counsel present.
They have carried this situation into a 9 month situation which has cost my family over $20,000 as well as my job for having to take off so much to work with them to try to resolve their issues however they still state I was unprotective of my children which was proven nonsense in court. They involved ex-spouses and helped the two communicate and I have CPS records that are 3 inches thick of ex-spouses being the ONLY ones making accusations and they acted on every one of them which in turn did nothing but traumatize my children more. They were shown the ex-spouses history which included violence, drug use, attempted suicides etc they were shown police records, court documents etc and still stated that it was not a concern to them and that they felt the childrens safety was fine with the ex-spouses.
CPS will compensate for what they have done to my family however there is NO WAY they could ever undo the life long damage and pain they have inflected on my children as well as myself and our families reputation. If anybody else has been affected by CPS in Texas I can help and will be more than happy to do so to stop this from occurring to undeserving families. However I feel CPS in SOME cases do help innocent children who have and do need assistance but I also feel that they take their power and act upon families who are good upstanding families and in doing so damage and traumatize children and parents in the process. If we would not have seeked out help from a certain individual on our own we would have what family we do have today...or what is left of it, thanks to them..... We also have children who are in deep depression and angst due to their harrassment of them and still continuasly harrassing our family even now the case is closed.
