Pretty much. They tried to send me to rehab for marijuana abuse even though I pissed clean and my hair tested clean :roll: Surprisingly they didn't give me shit for not vaxing, but why try to send me to marijuana rehab when I don't even test positive for THC? :? You can't even be physically addicted to weed haha. Ugh. It was a nightmare though. They got on my case for DS not walking yet (he was 10mos) and for not being able to say more than 15 words (he didn't even really talk until a couple months after his second birthday). They're useless drama here.

This all the way!! CPS is pretty much useless. You have nothing to worry about.

:? Who are you? :roll: It was a legit question and sometimes you do have to worry. I believe there was a story IN THIS THREAD about a a kid being taken away for two weeks because someone called in bullshit. So yeah, asking what she think might have been said or if she can imagine what they might be looking for is fair.

My ex called on me a few weeks ago because he's a spoiled b***h. They came, talked to me for a few hours, looked around the house, took pictures of dd, and drug tested me (I passed). The end result? He's not allowed any contact with either of us :D he's an abusive a*****e. On tip of that they tested him and he came back positive for meth. Had no idea. I guess it sucks to suck lol.

Exactly. If CPS does nothing and they are useless than how did the over 400,000 kids in the united states get into foster care?

Wow! Apparently he didn't realize he would be investigated too. What an idiot!

Obviously if she doesn't have anything to worry about it shouldn't be a problem in the long run, but it certainly doesn't hurt to have an idea what kind of run around you might be in for. And shit does happen, like bullshit claims of molestation might get your kid taken away immediately, even if they are proven false after investigation. So yeah, to worry a little is not unfounded.

Because most of them were given up or their parents didn't care. I called CPS on my bestfriend and my BIL for making meth with her daughter inside. He was on probabtion and I made a report with his officer as well. They did NOTHING. Not even a visit until the school reported her having bruises.

Not true, you cannot legally surrender children they have to removed first and there has to be cause and a court order to do so. Their parents may not have cared but there has to be an investigation opened and a judge has to order them removed.



I will say that due to the system being overrun and the fact that there aren't enough people to investigate claims it can take awhile for everything to be investigated. Claims of abuse or neglect are classified by risk, the ones where there is imminent danger take precedence over those that are considered lower risk. Physical and sexual abuse claims are investigated before neglect or endangerment claims.

:roll: What dicks!

I called on a friend who was tore up on drugs. I told them her name, phone number, and everything they needed to know. She has a 10 page long arrest history. She had just gone down to the job and family service office a month prior and filled out her assistance info. The CPS is in the SAME building. I told them I had her address just not her apartment number but that THEY had her apt #. They told me obviously I was not too concerned for the childs safety if I didn't take the time to find out the apt # before I called them and they hung up on me.

I'm trying to get a job with cps (in October when I finish my degree) it's so unsettling to know that so many people have such a negative opinion of the system. I know the case loads are ridiculous which is why they need more caring and qualified people. I really do want to help and make a difference.



Most women in this thread have claimed that they have been unfairly reported and that case workers came out and cleared everything. How is that useless? It's not CPS' s fault someone called. They have to investigate and they did. ... so I don't get it.
