CPS AND ACS TACTICSIf parents deny the CPS or ACS investigators to meet with the child at home the investigators will go to the child’s school and the school will allow them to meet with the child and question the child. The child will not know he or she has no legal obligation to talk to the CPS or ACS investigator. As a matter of fact, if they refuse to talk to the CPS or ACS worker with their parents not being present, they will be threatened by the CPS or ACS investigator. Children should not be exposed to this type of tactic.


Parents and caretakers, without a court order, have no obligation to consent to the request made by ACS or CPS workers regarding signing a release regarding medical information regarding the child. Parents have no obligation to take drug or alcohol tests or to submit to any type of medical or mental examination.

I have been representing clients in CPS and ACS investigations for more than 45 years. Unfortunately, virtually each and every item in this article that is not supposed to happen generally does happen. CPS and ACS Investigators ignore the parents and family’s rights and they act like they have God-given rights to do whatever they want in the family home and outside the family home. ACS and CPS investigators act like they have the right to coerce parents to jump through any hoops they feel are necessary.
