Stop CPS Corruption
In order to put a stop to CPS corruption all Americans must have a thourough understanding of their rights as a United States Citizen and regularly excercise them!
Under The Constitution of The United States Of America
"No man who is in a position of authority over them is above the law. Those who have been victimized have the real ability to seek civil and criminal punishment against those who use the authority of the state to act outside the law with impunity."
Funded with our hard earned dollars, Child Protection Services (CPS) have taken absolute power with no regard to The Constitution of the United States of America.
American's petitions to our elected representatives at the local, state, and federal levels are ignored, never answered, and therefore, are never resolved. .
This problem affects families in every city, and in every state spanning our entire nation. Violations occur in secret and are, (more often than not) upheld in Family Courts.
The unspeakable acts of Child Protection Services often result in American Parents and children paying the ultimate price, their loss of each other.
CPS is able to steal children simply because American's, for the most part do not understand their rights.
Americans Have the Right to be Threat Free
Under The Constitution of the United States of America all Americans have the right to be free from threats, duress, coercion, or intimidation in their dealings with the State.
Parents are subjected to threats, duress, and coercion by CPS Workers when they are told they will never see their children unless they confess. Children are also told that until they tell what the worker wants to hear, they will not see their parents.
CPS Workers are banging, (not knocking) on parents doors at 6, 7, 8, 9, even as late as 10 PM.
CPS Workers Harass parents with constant phone calls and making empty promises to do things such as, pay the rent, or get them food, or buy their child a computer if they comply.
If the parents or child does not take the CPS worker up on their empty promises the CPS worker then reverts to threats and more consistent harassment.
Threats, duress, and coercion such as these cause the parents to fear losing their children. In many cases the parents are so terrified they forget their fundamental Constitutional right to Due process. When this happens, their children are taken.
The Right to be Secure
Under the Constitution of the United States of America all Americans have the right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable search and seizure.
This right is violated when CPS workers and police officers take and/or question children without warrants or evidence that a crime has taken place.
American children are their parents property.
CPS Workers go unannounced into schools where they interview the child away from the parent and without the child having an attorney. This is total disregard to the rights of the parents to be with a child when they are being questioned. Likewise, it is total disregard to the child's right to have a parent or an attorney present during questioning.
CPS Workers do this "private interview" kind of questioning in order to put down on paper, things the child never said. Reasons to tell the judge the children should be taken. The judge typically sides with the CPS worker sighting things such as "they are mandated by the state to tell the truth, so they must be telling the truth." Boom - the judge orders the child into foster care where it is virtually impossible for the parent to get their child back into their own home.
Under our 6Th Constitutional Amendment All Americans have the right to not be subjected to hearsay evidence against them.
In child abuse cases hearsay evidence is very often admitted into court. When the CPS worker tells the judge of the "private interview" with the child. Things that were said even if the child denies having said it, the courts typically side with the CPS worker and thus, allow hearsay into their final judgement.
Under The Constitution of The United States of America all Americans have the right to exercise freedom of religion.
CPS regularly removes children for various religious practices.
The Right to not be a Witness
Under the 5th Amendment of The Constitution of the United States America - All American's have the right to not be compelled to be a witness against him/herself.
Family courts (under CPS suggestion), regularly order the parent to cooperate with CPS and to sign releases of private medical and psychiatric information. they are told if they do not sign they will lose their children.
By being given this direction through the courts a parents rights to not be a witness against him/herself is directly violated.
Parents have the right to cross-examine witnesses and impeach testimony. Unfortunately, parents are being denied their right to submit evidence to the courts that would be in their favor.
Under the Constitution of the United States of America Parents have the right to not to be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.
The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment protects the fundamental right of parents to make decisions concerning the care, custody, and control of their children,including medical treatment decisions.
However, parental rights are terminated when the CPS agent removes their child from his/her home. The Parents are then denied the right to be present at interviews and examinations and in many cases are not allowed to speak with their children. Visitations (if granted) are supervised places where children and parents are not allowed to talk about CPS.
Parents are being denied their rights to their own children before due process of law has occurred.
Effectively proven guilty before having had the chance to prove themselves innocent.
CPS Treatment Centers
CPS and family courts regularly violate due process rights when they force DHS services upon families.
Psychiatric evaluations, drug treatments and more, all through a "DHS approved" treatment center.
These "DHS approved" treatment centers routinly find all bad in the situation and assist in children being removed from their home.
Abuse Registry's Violate Parents Rights
Under the Constitution of the United States of America all Americans have the right to be legally protected from slanderous or libelous reports against them; and the right to be able to seek real retribution for any such violations against their character.
"When a parent's name is entered on a registry' of child abusers, without
having been convicted of the crime of child abuse, it publicly presents this person as though he were a convicted criminal and has the effect of legally slandering and libeling his character."

vanessa aparicio on December 10, 2019:
we all need to stand together to get our children back we cant do it by ourselves because of the power social workers have i say everybody with a cps case in the united states gets together to make a point to the government that we want justice and we want all those damn social workers who violated our rights be put in jail for what they have done to our families and our poor babies its not right and the system should be destroyed im embarrassed to call this america

JamiePriest on July 15, 2019:
I HAVE NO ONE TO HELP MY SON!!!! 2 ATTORNEY'S HAVE QUIT, 4 HAVE REFUSED TO TAKE MY CASE. ALL SAY IT'S TOO MUCH THAT I'M BEING SINGLED OUT AND TOO MANY OF MY RIGHTS VIOLATED!!! My 7 yr old happy healthy little boy was taken by Alabama Dhr/cps in May. I have proof that PFA orders were ignored, i was wrongfully arrested, and my sweet baby is still in an overcrowded foster home with people who do it for a paycheck. He has bruises and cuts every time I see him. I have spent all my savings on lawyers who have all left me hanging. I'm literally selling the clothes off my back and pictures off my walls in my home trying to make it and find someone who will help me get my baby back. He is my world. I die a little every day when my eyes openand its another day without him. The judge is as corrupt as the rest of the pieces of garbage involved. My baby needs someone to help him....i desperately need help. I'll never give up on my son.....if anyone has any advice or anything at all as far as what I should do. My email is Jamiemarie0785@gmail.com......Thank you and God Bless.
Cheryl Carroll on May 28, 2018:
I put my daughter in foster care voluntarily 11 years ago. WE started out with unsupervised visits, and went to supervised visits. To make a long story short, a year and half later, my rights and her biological rights were taken from us. She was adopted, and now she hates us. I was told my the DHS worker to my face that I can only raise one child. The case worker was a faciliter in a team meeting and told that worker my daughter shouldn't be in my home. I am respecting her and her families wishes and letting her come to me, but I can't just sit here and let DHS tear families apart under the "best interest for the child." When does taking a child from the only family that they knew and putting them with total strangers? In the hearing they hyped on the fact of letting my daughter and my son having a relationship. My son and my daughter have not seen each other in 9 years till she turned 18.
I am trying to find a way to way to tell my story and hopefully help someone else. If anyone has any ideas, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org

Mariah, have you gotten ahold of the ICWA within your tribe? Even though your babies don't have enough blood quantum, you are still their mother and you are tribal. This case has to be handled in tribal court or at least with ICWA representive .
Mariah on February 25, 2018:
My babies were also taken 40-50 miles away from us iam a member of the passamaquoddy tribe my babies dont have enough blood quantum to be on the census here but child welfare are a 3rd in this case my babies should have remained around here not taken many miles away
Mariah on February 25, 2018:
Cps took my babies 2 days ago the judge said he found jeapordy in me because I missed to many counceling appointments due to transportation issues no fault of mine the judge said in my case there's no abuse nor neglect in this kind of case it's more along the lines of metal health issues with my husband which he has been fine for over a year now we have done everything they've wanted us to do the Guardian at Latium and child welfare from my tribe said un court that the best interest of my babies is to remin with me my husband isn't allowed to be here without another person here with us its been like that since October of 2017 my husband was denied to make a statement in court cps threatened us I need my babies back home iam dying inside my babies are 1almost 2 and 3 year's old im gonna miss my babies birthday and Easter with them this is wrong no abuse.or.neglect
Isaac Herriott on December 28, 2017:
My to daughters were taken by cps. They tricked me into signing papers to help. They did not help. They just try to split my family up and keep are girls. Are hole case cps is going off hearsay. No real proof. We have had another baby in hole time case was going on. Cps tried to take baby but couldn't.. We tried doing everything they wanted. The cps worker Greg said we could do everything and fallow all recomondations but didn't mean we get girls back. Not until she admits to having a drug problem. Cps is so corrupt and need to be put in there place. We need are daughters back. Cps lies, manipulates and makes up false statements. This is all happening in bend Oregon. We're dhs thinks there oboe everyone. Above the law and constitutional rights.

I feel that "anonymous tippers" should have to give their name because somebody should be held responsible for false allegations. If they don't have to give their name then why should I have to deal with their harassment?

Miranda Solevilla on November 03, 2017:
Omg... Who ever it was that wrote the article I thank u soo much ... This article had me in TEARS.. EVERY SINGLE THING SAID HERE 100% True...
I CRIED CAUSE NOW I KNOW 100% IM NOT TRIPPING OR CRAZY, OR A LIAR. I MEAN my whole support system has turned their backs on me because of CPS.. I can give you or things aside from that these weasels have done to me...
I trusted in the beginning of my case the court appointed attorney which kicked me and the butt because I needed to submit or I actually did submit my discharge papers from the hospital to the social worker and I trusted because I couldn't get ahold of the court appointed attorney I trusted that she would submit that to the court for me the reason I couldn't get ahold of the court appointed attorney I tried blowing up her office phone her cell phone her email no response ever and in order for the judge to review any information or evidence on your behalf it has to be submitted 7 to 10 business days before your court hearing and see I didn't know this in the beginning I was new to this whole thing and the messed up thing about it is that she never gave it to the judge so it was never reviewed their there lies and allegations became f a c t s when they had no Hospital documents and just there hearsay which was enough to permanently remove my children from me because I couldn't hand the judge any document the date of court and I didn't even get to see or know who the court-appointed attorney was until 3 minutes before court so that wasn't an option for me either and not being able to have the judge anything when you can't get ahold of the court appointed attorney really kick me in the ass because they use that for grounds of permanent removal and I had done what I was supposed to do and then it all just kept transpiring with lie after lie or her not doing her job and putting it off on me these weasels can sit on their ass behind their desk and make up all these false lies and your whole entire family starts believing them cuz you're very convincing very manipulative they tell you one thing they tell your family another they tell you one thing is going to happen in court and it's going to be good when in actuality if they even say that they're pleased with you you better watch out because usually that ends up being one of the worst court dates ever I'm so frustrated and Furious right now I'm about to lose my parental rights to my youngest they gave so custody of my teenage girl to an absentee father of 13 years who has a criminal rap sheet like a like a mofo I've been trying my hardest I got accepted as a pro bono but honestly how come the attorneys even private attorneys aren't fighting these rights for us I don't understand everyone says it's a process this is the process that I don't understand how we can go before it's too late my son is my world and I've been fighting for over 2 years now it's already two and a half years and we they did to terminate my parental rights but my attorney was able to help us to win the appeal okay even though we won the appeal like whenever I try to contact the social worker she's not calling me back she she waits until like 7 days before court she isn't making any reasonable efforts she hasn't even kept any of her monthly appointments I have a call out to prove that I've been calling her but none of that matters I even have recorded conversations with her but I can't submit those into evidence either she's not returning my calls to help me get what I need to get done and the frustrating part of it is is it's that I've already done all that they had asked me to do and the social worker had been pleased with my efforts one court date and I was asked by the judge to give three things okay and then they were going to start the unmonitored visits they all of a sudden they had a problem with one of my classes that I have been going to for over a year that the social worker had verified in the beginning of my enrollment now they had a problem with it and that's why they had originally terminated my parental rights and now now that I don't have insurance now they're trying to require because we won the appeal they're trying to require me to do everything all over again and I don't have money to pay for everything all over again we shouldn't have even been here in the first place so they're going to say that I wasn't doing my part and they're going to try to terminate my parental rights and I don't know what to do I don't know how to win this I need help please anybody out there that can help me help me please I'm so desperate I love my kids I've never even hurt my kids please please somebody help me before it's too late my name is Miranda solevilla and my phone number is 626-638-8817

They are all totally corrupt. My son was taken away from me into the hand son of an abuser.
Paula on October 31, 2017:
my children and grandchildren have been taken by this evil system!
Marcia,rodrighuez on October 30, 2017:
My grandchildren were takin because lies hearsay,and cps bullshit,my daughters constitutional rights violated from start to finish any help out there to file suit message me this is in waterloo iowa.
Becky on October 17, 2017:
John you are 100% correct,cps in America needs to not only be investigated they need to be shut down,doors closed and each evil doer held accountable for the children's lives not only destroyed for the rest of their lives but the lives lost due to the fact they were placed in foster care.
My son went thru a nightmare being accused of sexual misconduct to not only his biological child but his two step daughters he raised as his own.
Long story short after 11 months of foster care and thank God my daughter and her husband were the foster parents,it was proven in court by private investigator his court appointed attorney hired it was proven by and thru video tapes casa had with the two step daughters stating he,my son did nothing.that there mother prior to court hearings made them repeat things she put in there head to say. Investigator found these tapes.my son was given custody of his two children however nothing was done to the mother.
Six years later cps came in again and illegally with out due process several lies told the judge agreed to give them back to the mother.WHY?
Because he happens to be a judge who is a crooked rotten boughten part of the corrupted cps family.
Three years after that the D.A filed contempt charges for nonpayment of child support again he snagged another crooked judge who in the end determined my son was guilty until his appeal went in his favor.
Now it's finding an attorney pro Bono to file suit against not only cps but the state of Oregon as well.And it has to be an attorney out of the state as well. No luck yet but as his mother I don't intend on stopping.
Every individual who has ever been targeted needs to stand up against these b_____'s and fight back with all that the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CONSTITUTION WAS SET FORTH FOR. FOR THIS VERY REASON OF TYRANT BEHAVIOR.
if you have forgotten study on what you failed to pay attention to in school and stand your ground and don't shut up till your heard.
It is time to shut there doors for good.
Veronica Dunn on September 22, 2017:

JacquieCa on September 13, 2017:
CPS put my name on the central registry for child neglect when I never was issued any kind of ticket, never had any kind of court date and law enforcement was never contacted. CPS came to my home due to false allegations made about me and they did an investigation. I recieved a letter that the case was dismissed and never heard anything of it again. Then two and a half years later I went to get a job babysitting and I was told that I would not be hired because I was on the central registry for child neglect. They called it Agency Substantiated........ My daughter has never been removed from my home and because of my name being on the registry I can never have a job involving children or vulnerable adults. I dont understand how CPS can do this?
Marty on July 24, 2017:
Please help, CPS has violated my civil rights. At the last hearing they were claiming that my children were claiming domestic violence by me against my wife. We were told the judge had already made her decision with out hearing our side or reviewing the evidence. When I asked them to prove their claims, I was told to take a deal right then and there or they would ensure we did not see our children for two years. Later that day we were told there was no sufficient evidence of domestic but that they would do us a favor and kick the case out of the court system and give my wife and I individual counseling, and CPS would retain custody of our kids. I am totally confused if they do not have evidence why are they keeping my kids. Why have I been told I have less rights than a criminal? I have called everyone in CPS from the lead investigator to the regional office and they continue to ignore me. I have contacted many attorneys in the area and all they tell me is that they do not handle these cases. I have also contact my state rep. and the attorney general. Please help me we are in San Antonio TX. Monday we have to sign the agreement and I would rather die than admit to guilt. As a veteran of the USAF I was always told we defend the constitution and the right of the citizens, but now I find myself in the court system and am being told I have no rights. This is a shame and a slap in the face. Please Help we are desperate. Thank you.

Debi Friis on April 26, 2017:
my grandson was placed in my care Through CPS as temp cousity. because my daughter had had a wreck with him in the car. she was drunk. CPS within 3 weeks had called me in and to bring my grandson also (he was 15 months old at the time) he was taken out of my arms. this was so devastating to him and myself. i was all he knew. i had raised him from birth.
multipul court dates. i was not allowed to talk. my daughter had cleaned up her act.
between the last trial and the date they placed him in his birth dads cousity. my daughter wrecked my jeep. she broke her back and was airlifted to tje medical center. while still in the hospital the court date came up. CPS or the guardian alitium failed to tell the court she was not able to be there because she was in the hospital. court continued and he was given to the birth father.
he is now 6. and my daughter isnt allowed to even have visitation with her son. not by court order. but because his father doesnt feel she deserves to. we just found out that CPS turned it over to the chancery judge without us even being aware of it. she was never told this. my lawyer found this out when we talked to him about trying to get visitation.
my daughter is now married. he husband works for att. they own their home and land. but the childs father doesnt like him so he feels her child isnt safe. But they have a pair of 8 month old twin boys now and 95% of the time his 5 1/2 year old daughter. he has never been in trouble. a vet of war. so what can be done or what steps needed be taken
Miriam Ramirez on March 19, 2017:
Hi. Not sure who to turn to. I've labeled as uncooperative by DHS and denied right to be a Safety Provider for my grandchildren.
What caused this is I providedon't my daughter with an attorney number, gave her information on her 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th amendment rights, including ORS 109.119.
They did not like this and told everyone that I "gave bad advice to my daughter and they would not be approving me as safety provider"
I know this is wrong and even though both parents requested me to be added the said no, they will not approve me, it will take 20 years. This is unfair, I've never in my life been accused, have impeccable record, good testimony with friends, family and professional organizations. Never ever had any incidents.
I learned the hard way that even though DHS should not discriminate, retaliate or be biased, they are.
I've written to the Governors office, to the DHS Advocacy office, to DHS staff and am getting the run around.
I've even been at meetings with my daughter, CFM with other represented staff and even invoked my rights and still been denied, even after both attorneys for the children and daughter told DHS staff that she would have to look into.
Who can I go to? How do I file? Does it have to be my daughter as she is the one in the case? Do I have a chance of filing a Tort Claim so that in future I can file lawsuit? I dont have the funds now because I an helping daughter with her attorney. Please help. Thank you. I found your info online.
Destiny Rose (author) on January 17, 2017:
Do you still have your children? If so, I would suggest not letting DHS gt a hold of them - Place them where DHS can not find them - with someone you know and trust and never, ever let DHS into your house for any reason whats so ever - If your attorney Dose not seem to be able to help you have the right to request a new one as many times as you think are nessasary, but I would suggest listening very calmly to what the attorney as to say and not changing attorneys in haste .... just my two cents anyway :)
Kari on January 16, 2017:
I do have one but she is court appointed to me before I even knew what was going on
Destiny Rose (author) on January 16, 2017:
If you do not have an attorney I would suggest getting one and soon - DHS will ignore all of your abuse unless they can use it against you
Kari Anthony on January 12, 2017:
I NEED HELP PLEASE!!! I KEEP ASKING EVERYONE WHAT MY RIGHTS ARE BUT I GET A RUN AROUND!!!! I NEED A STRAIGHT FORWARD ANSWER BEFORE I LOSE MY CHILDREN!!!! TODAY WAS THE STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMELS BACK!!!!
My name is Kari, I am a survivor of Domestic violence (that unfortunately my children were witnesses to) & I am a single mother of 3..10yr old girl with ADHD, 8yr old boy That Suffers from Horrible CPTSD Night Terrors & Anger problems. He HATES men unless it's my dad. Then there is my youngest 6yr old lil girl who suffers from severe dyslexia & it is even Notated in her School IEP that she does better in "a make believe world" than reality.
I moved away from My abusive Brother & Sister 3.5 years ago when I was also Leaving my ex husband. I moved to Nebraska with whom I call "Mom" ( a long time coming worker that has played that role since my mother passed in 06) All my children know her as their Gran. Well my ex followed me up here and for the 1st 6-8 months of being here he followed me and had several domestic violence incidents for the 1st time and THE ABSOLUTE LAST TIME in the process of trying to hit me he blacked my son's eye (5 @ the time) that's when I finally said enough is enough & filed charges & restraining order. This took a horrible toll on my oldest and so I modified it about 3 months later to allow phone calls and video visits. After about 3 more months he had been receiving counseling so I dropped it so the kids could have visits with him...this went well for a couple months but then right back to the same stuff when he found out that my now boyfriend and I started talking (Nov 14). I then again filed a restraining order as he started getting aggressive and verbally abusive. I stuck to my guns this time. He tried several times to get to me and the kids all in which I reported and or had cops come do walk throughs before bring kids in house. Well he finally left. My Now boyfriend ( please keep in mind He has Absolutely No criminal history he had 2 traffic violations & 1 instance as a 17 yrs old that his then gf was hitting & punching him because of an teenage relationship argument & his response to it was to go outside & scream Away from everyone and kicked a bumper (which cracked the back glass) He is now grown up (29) & he has a 9 yr old (mentality of 3.5-4 yr) special needs daughter( had a stroke in the whomb) and a 4 yrs old lil boy) and I have became a lot closer over the years but I didn't want to throw my children into a new situation & he understood that so it wasn't until Summer/Fall of 15 that I brought him around my kids once or twice a month...as time passed things were getting better, the children were all becoming closer (however except my son he had good days where he acted as if we were all one big happy family then there were days he hated going over to play or even for dinner) He Hated that my boyfriend would ask him to go play outside with everyone else instead of sitting on couch with tablet or watching TV. So when he would go outside he would sit in one spot yelling there was nothing to do (we had trampoline, bikes, play sets, football, kick balls, slides & tball set). I made them stay out side for at least an hour at a time as that's how it was when I was growing up. We'll at the end of school year last year (15-16 school year) we stayed the night just a couple of times. Well during the summer My kids went on a road trip to the beach with their Gran in June, she stopped in East TN (where I moved from) and my Dad wanted to keep the kids for a lil while and then brought them back to me right after 4th of July. When they got back my boyfriend and I had decided we would stay at his house but I would keep my apartment to see how things went. He had his kids Sunday night through Wednesday afternoons. We both work restaurant life from Wednesday nights to Sunday lunch. Everything seemed to be going great with my girls, to the point they slipped up & called him Daddy a couple times. We went on a mini family vacation before school everything is going Great. ((LET ME PAUSE & SAY THAT MY SON & OLDEST ARE IN WEEKLY THERAPY because of their past with their dad. So was my youngest until last May. ALL IN WHICH WOULD TALK THEIR THERAPIST'S EAR OFF TALKING ABOUT ANY AND I DO MEAN ABSOLUTELY ANY LITTLE THING THIERRY DAD DID EVEN WHEN IN THE VERY BEGINNING I would tell them that it was only mommy & daddy's business & Mommy didn't want daddy to go to jail, that mommy was ok. I am the first one to admit I was wrong and the excuse of I was the stereo typical DV victim burns my mouth cause there was never a good reason for it to be ok & NEVER PUT MYSELF IN THAT SITUATION AGAIN))
Now that being said I also want to add before I move on to this next part, that we had a few behavioral issues with my son while he was at my dad's with putting his hands on his sisters & SLOWLY killing 2 frogs "just to watch them die" while he was at his Gran's. All in which was discussed with his Therapist cause these are not his 1st instances.
That All being said the beginning of October we received a call from school saying my son had bit a lil girl at school. He got in big trouble and grounded for a week well we live in a small house so instead of the room where all the other kids were he stood in corner & yes he got lectured cause I was in tears trying to figure out what I could do for him cause this IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAPPENED. Then about a week later he fell off the monkey bars at school which left bruises on the side of his face, arm & side all on the same side none of the bruises were bigger than a nickel. Other than rash on collar bone where his Hoodies snagged. I seen the bruises that night asked what happened & he told me he didn't know. I asked if it was the boys he was having problems with at school he said no but put his head down. I asked my oldest to watch after him. Well Tuesday night they seemed to get worse. So Wednesday morning I took him into school spoke with Principal & he told me what happened I asked my son why didn't he just tell me, he said cause he was not playing on it the right way. They went to daycare & everything was ok no problems...on the 2nd Sunday of November My 10yr told us that her daycare teacher at night had been pulling my son out of class & letting him play on her phone...then 2nd Monday of November he was laying on the mat in the floor next to Bunk Beds & hit the other side of his face against the bottom bar....I took him into school Tuesday Morning to show the principal, my son even told him what happened & he explained how u could tell what & how he hit the bar because of the way the blood vessels in the bruise was. Went to School Wednesday & Thursday just fine nothing else said, went to daycare Thursday night he & a lil boy got into it because my son had his teachers phone & the lil boy started kicking him cause he wanted to play, then on Nov 11th my boyfriend and I had to work a double for Vets Day so kids went to daycare during the day. The Daycare went on field trip to the bowling alley, the day shift workers claimed that my son was acting out & that was not normal for him. ( before this he was in an after-school bowling program at the same bowling alley & they don't agree with that statement as well as My own personal experiences with him at the alley he always acts out if he is not 1st & or Winning) they asked him when they got back what was wrong he said everyone is mean to me (a normal saying for him) so they started asking him like who he said he don't know, then they started asking leading questions to the point he finally says my boyfriends name so they stopped asking everything else, then asked him did he get that bruise on his face from him he said yeah they then showed different types of hand jesters until he picked one. They took him to the bathroom & pulled his pants down & found small poked like bruises on his thighs & asked if he ever kicked him, my son said yeah. the cops got there by a lil after 6. They questioned him at daycare & spoke to my daughters. There is a lot more! They are also using my x stuff against me! They won't tell me nothing!

---------- Forwarded message ---------i need help and don't know what way to turn. My son got put into foster care in the state of Florida. I live in Louisiana, but my ex husband lived in panama city and got arrested for drugs while in the united states air force. I have my son in louisiana at the time. Well when we went to visit in florida the dcf took him. The only reason they told me was for his protection even I passed the drug test they gave and showed proof of residence in louisiana, income, my son had no bruises and completely healthy. So i thought they would return him the next day in court. They didnt and reason bring that they couldnt confirm or deny any of my proof of live in louisiana. So i returned to louisiana with no case plan not information on where or with who my son had been placed. I was told i would get calls on mondays but they hardly came from feb 3 to may 3 2016 my son and i lived in hell. He would tell his caseworker about being hurt by the bad man on the dirty floor at daycare, the bad man burning him, not being fed, the foster family would throw anything i sent home, he never would have clothes that fit, his mixed they never put lotion on his skin, they told him this happened because he was bad, told him i was arrested(i have no Criminal record) he started making potty on himself (potty trained since he is 2) if i tried they would cut my visit sort if i showed any kind of emotion i had to leave. My son couldnt sit down in one visit and the caseworker heard my son say please pray the sassers stop hurting me. When i tried to take pictures of the burnes she started screaming at me and cussing at me. My son ended up in the hospital over the weekend with 104 fever because of Mercer and i wasnt informed till monday. I had to send a private investigator to talk to denise heaton with big ben in panama city just so she would give me proof of my sons allegations of abuse that he told to her all because i told her i was suing everyone involved in this case because everything my son would tell her she would tell the sassers and send him back and everytime he would return for a visit he would have another horrible allegation. And i was talking to him over the phone no body was on in visitation.......... My son said they took his blanket and he had to share a bed because of it. The worst part is i completed my case plan and a couple days before court the added on to it. Put that i was compliant even though i showed proof of everything. The caseworker refused to send someone out to my home because i went from renting to owning and she didnt update my address so i failed my home study and now i have been waiting since august. I passed my mental eval, psychiatric eval, drug eval, showed income, gave proof of medical and transportation, and completed my parenting classes. I have proof of everything and on the day before court my court appointed lawyer sent an email saying i would get a conference call from court with a stand in lawyer because she wouldnt be there and i got no call. But flags was raised because the caseworker got caught lying in documents that she had notarized to say my sons mental state was destroyed before all of this and that she thought best to put him back in foster care because of depression and more allegations against the foster family about them putting numbers in his head that drives him crazy, a man in a white mask cutting him, and dreaming of a red angel(devil) . She refuses to answer when i call or text or email and someone in the court system or the person that notarized the paper said they personally knew denise and took her lying statement as truth even though i was proven a lie. This woman will never return my son. I completed two everything she has asked of me and when she talked to mental health the counselors (more than one) told me denise has it out for me that if she cant prove something she will drag it out till my time is up and this is just some of it Please help me. I dont know where to turn and i have proof to back up everything in this statement.cid:image001.png@01D21031.92C21300

I am so sorry to hear such a horrible story -how long has it been since this happened to your son? I would think that grandparents have rights as well
Doree on November 28, 2016:
My son never even got the chance to be a father. Since my grandsons mother had been deemed unfit with a previous child the SW. took the mothers history in front of the Judge to get the order for immediate removal. My son was living with me when his child was born and wasnt even with the mother of his child. When police came to my door they asked for Nicole, thats who the warrant was for, but CPS still took my grandson from my son claiming since he had a DV 4 on his record from 4 years prior that he was a severe threat to his son. We had my grandson in our care for 18 hrs before he was stolen from us.
I wasnt allowed in the courtroom with my son, the AAG made sure of that. I knew to much, I knew my son had rights and I knew that a DV 4 that was a non violent offense did not constitute imminent danger and the need to remove a child.
Statutes werent followed, no preventative measures were offered, no family members were pursued for placement. This SW had my grandson promised to a family before he was even born. She never had any intention to ever reunite my son with his child. The SW sabotaged, coerced and conspired with service providers to gurantee my son fail his services. The SW was able to get my sons rights terminated. The Judge, the AAG, the SW the court appointed attorneys all corrupt over here in Stevens County, WA.
I dont understant how you can take someones right away to something that you denied them of.
Gbd on October 06, 2016:
It is a very good idea to keyed your children away from foul, evil people!Social services abuses children, families and the constitution. Keep abusers away from family. They hurt you with cloak of immunity, using color of law. Children are not benefited by CPS, they are abused.
Gbd on October 06, 2016:
No different in MT. Althrgh my child was not bio., I had raised her from birth to kidnapping(3). Never a visit allowed, ignored freedom of information, violated all the above constitutional rights and attys. would not help me. I to would like to see CPS prosecuted...and jailed.
Destiny Rose (author) on September 20, 2016:
Not off hand but try typing "list of attorneys that fight CPS" into Google I am sure you will be able to find one from there and also there is a facebook group called legally kidnapped - join in with them and as for advice there as well. I wish the Best of luck to you and your Family :)
JonnieAngel on September 19, 2016:
You wrote exactly what is going on in my families life..I wish more people knew what is really going on. I am in the process of having my parental rights removed with all complete lies against myself and husband we are seeking a civil rights attorney would you know of any that could help us as time is of the essence ..We have been fighting for 3 years now and DHS is trying to adopt my children out .I need help now!!!...Can anyone help us fight this system ?
Mommy Love on August 17, 2016:
We have a group that is fighting to expose CPS if you would like help. Please email me at email@example.com
Destiny Rose (author) on August 02, 2016:
Wow, I would suggest if your child is still with you - to keep them with you and tell the DHS that you have rights and will be retaining an attorney - I would not let them in or give them any information or take any kind of bullying off of them thats for sure .
Gayala20 on July 31, 2016:
Can the cps agent tell you that you passed a drug screen and it be a false statement? She has just accused me of smoking pot and gave me an at home mouth swab test. She told me I was all clear and then proceeded to ask me when the last time I smoked was... I think I screwed myself over by telling her a while back ago. She then asked if I have ever done that in front of my son and I of course said I never have. Ugh I'm freaking out because she just picked up and left. I had no idea that you could not let them in. This is my first baby and I don't want to lose him...he so small and innocent
step mom on July 19, 2016:
Hi my husband has a son in DHHS SYSTEM and the minute he found out he was the father he went there and said he wanted custody of him. They said he was taken from our home when he was never in our home. My husband didn't find out he was the father till he was a little over three months after he was born. When his son was born he had to go through detox thanks to his so called mother who is a dlprostitue but she says she is a private dancer. DHHS went to the hospital and took him into foster care because the so. Called mother told a lot of lies about him so now we are fighting to get him back we have visits for 4 hour's on Sunday and yes they are supervised when we did nothing to lose him. We can't afford a lawyer and no one can help us. We need some legal aid.

That is the reason the parent needs to understad their rights and exercise them theirselves
Kelley on June 05, 2016:
There are no lawyers willing to take these cases that the problem! Workers and judges know that!!!!!!!!! Get an attorney to take the case is as easy as walking to the moon daily
dave on March 06, 2016:
wife abused one of the kids, DHS has done a china, and placed her in PMIC. The FSRP worker has lied to the judge. My attorney doesn't know the court documents, sent me a copy 45 days after court, couldn't even appeal. I have video of the worker coming into my porch and reporting on my house through the window. Should I sue them. Should I let DHS in the house any more?
Destiny Rose (author) on October 06, 2015:
Hello Susie, I am so sorry to hear what happened to you. I would start with some consultations with lawyers. Many have free consultations innitally. You can gain some really good insight by speaking with a good few of them.
Susie1157 on October 02, 2015:
Hello my name is Susan. I have serious concerns re:D.C.F.S. of California. Everything about this case is corrupted. There is so much to this case. There is not one right that they didn't violate. Abduction from a mandated daycare. /Amendments,(4th,6th,and 14th) Violated under U.S. C.S1983 Hafer v.Memo./Constitutional rights/Code of ethics (4.01(C).At 4.04)/Title 18 U.S.C.SECTION 242..My twin daughter's age 9 months old we taken by cps workers from my daycare worker stating the children were abandoned. However the daycare worker stated and wrote a statement that this was not true. It was never submitted to court. My children were never returned to me and were placed with my daycare worker who petitioned to adopt them and lied about me and after less then 1 year my parental rights were terminated and she has adapted my girls. I have documentation and facts proving there false allegations. There is so much more. Plz let me know if you could help w/ A civil rights suit and if you can't could you plz assist me with someone tht can.I do thank and appreciate your time and effort. Again thank you, Respectfully, Susie
Destiny Rose (author) on September 25, 2015:
I am so sorry to hear this. If it were me I would get a good lawyer and also have a private therapist do an evaluation on me to prove I don't have a mental problem. I would never go through CPS program, their doctors and therapists are on their side.
lisa on September 22, 2015:
I recently had cps with several officers storm my home and rip my children out of my single parent home. Basing it on an assault i went thru which wasnt at my home,and threats a grown man texted to my teenage son about taking his life. I called police and they dealt with the threats and told me to get a p.o. in case. Cps worker lied and said i did nothing and refused to keep my kids safe, therefore i was a danger to my kids and my mental health is in question. They assaulted my teen after he was in handcuffs, i showed her the marks and asked what she was gonna do about it. She looked at another officer n said to put me in handcuffs so she could get rest of kids in car. Another officer slammed the car door on my 9yr old legs as my neighbors watched n screamed. They refused to let anyone speak to them. They took my teen to juvie and wouldnt uncuff til he apologized. So he did n they took him to rest of siblings. It was a nightmare we all still deal with. Cps worker wont tell me anything except i see you in court. She never gave me option to go anywhere but home where she removed them. She placed with family but forced my teen to go to school where the threats said theyd kill him. He is scared. So cps officers assaulted 2 of my children,forced my teen to go to the school were his life was threatened..and im unsafe..?i dont abuse, but state clearly didn't have their best interests in mind. So what do i do now..?
Stephanie on September 06, 2015:
My husbands' children were taken from his x wife. He wasn't even there at the time. CPS had nothing on him so they pulled up a police report from months prior where his x had falsely accused him of domestic violence. The charges were dismissed in the interest of justice because evidence did not support her story. CPS then used the police report and declared him guilty despite the charges being dropped so that they could avoid him getting the children and place them in foster care. It worked and two years later we are fighting for him to even see his children. Right now he gets ten minutes of phone time twice a week and has been denied counseling with his oldest son who now believes the lies that cps told and blames his father for what happened and he wasn't even there. So sad!!!!! So, don't believe for one second, people, that this couldn't happen to you. Once accused, no one believes the parent. Everyone assumes that case workers do their job and there is something the parent is not admitting to. It will take citizens of good standing realizing the horrific nature of this organization and speaking out against it for there to ever be any change. No your rights so it doesn't happen to you. But, we must also speak up for those it does happen to. Because injustice for any puts all at risk!

Destiny Rose (author) on September 02, 2015:
Do you have an attorney? I would advise you having one and discussing your rights with them
lblys22 on September 01, 2015:
All my rights were violated by Dhs down to the point they till the hair follicle test of my daughters without me or her lawyer present they questioned her without me there the first time they remove her from my home and she wasn't even there at the time of the incident now the judge and Dhs want me to take random UA test and do parents still building classes and a gazillion of the things that drug and alcohol assessment and I don't need any of that I went to meet with the screening for the drug and alcohol assessment lady should I give me so why are you here you don't need that but my question to you is can i still exercise my constitutional rights and have them give her back to me at my next hearing which is in a week
Destiny Rose (author) on August 31, 2015:
You are correct. In my case they did not like to hear the fact that they were violating my constitutional rights. I did learn when I took the foster care class that I took - the 13 steps to taking away people's children. It made me sick. I left, all it was was a group of people learning how to steal children, and adopt them for themselves because basically, there is money in it for everyone.
Paula Ward on August 28, 2015:
well im getting ready to file appeals on jasper county cps/fsrp workers whoch is newton iowa as well as the judge these people make me sick it takes alot of reading up on what you need to do to bust these sick money hungry snake in the grass people out if id write everything down that i have read and learned id be writing a book they have violated every write you can think of needless to say they are trained to lie and steal your kids regaurdless they are heartless individuals and the bonus they get for kid jacking wow really these creatures shouldnt have kids sad to say if they were my parents id be embarrased as well as disgusted we sure dont have money for a lawyer although we have trueness love and we will not give up and sure not scared ofvthem or their evil power

It seems DHS will make a mountain out of any mole hill - driving suspended is no reason to take children away -
stu dewitt on June 14, 2015:
Well same story basically here ...im a single dad of 3 daughters in washington state...i filed for divorce in 2009, on a monday, had her served on tues and on thursday i get a call from pierce county sherrifs sexual assualt unit saying they had a report of sexually touching my step-daughterand would like for me to come in for questioning..and so the false allegations began in what ended up being a 2 1/2 yr custody battle compounded with a 3rd party custody filed by my own flesh and blood ,my mother. It was so crazy here i am wanting a divorce from someone who had cheated numerous times was back into using meth and having a relationship with my half-brother who had just goten out of prison after serving his 2nd 5 yr.stay in 11 yearsof course for manuf of meth....can you say springer? Well i definetly had had my issues in years past but i thought drugs were way behind us and of course i was wrong!So im at one table and my soon to be ex and my very $$ motivated mother are at the other. Of course with the serious allegation of sexual contact with my step daughter the court was obligated to put kids safety as priority and i went almost 5 months without even seeingmy kids. Also along the way were several reports to cps that im this drug addicted sexually deviant child abusing father. My attorney in the dissolution said dont worry bout cps that we were doing everything we needed to be doing in family court . That wasnt the best advice by any means..so after numerous false allegations about this terrible dad and drug eval and dv eval and a polygragh which i passed and all that i could do to prove my i nnocense even tho in my original filing and declaration i made it loud and clear what the truth was and that no i was clean had been for several years and no sexual contact whataoever with any child (thats sick)no abuse of any kind but cps found where i had been cited for driving on a suspended license with the kids in the van and what the attorney told me not to worry about ended up being a founded finding by cps for neglect. Ok fine kids had been temporarily placed at grandmas and i and the mother were given by family court judge alaundry list of sorts to achieve before he would consider placing them back home with either one of us
Rod on May 30, 2015:
I'm a grand parent who was given custody of 2 out of 3 of my grandchildren. The 3rd, a 6 month old was placed in fostercare. Why ? Because the 6 month old was easiest to adopt out. Please note in my daughters home there was absolutely no drug use, drinking, ciggeretts, or violence. They had missed a doctor appointment. It took my private attorney and $23,000 to get the 2 I had. When I mentioned trying to get the third, 3 diffrent attorneys told me " If I tried DHS was going to find a reason to take the 2 I already had. After the 3rd was adopted out DHS was willing to return the 2 I had to their mother. The case was 3 years long. Involved 5 attorneys. Was full of lies, dieciete, broken promices, threats, etc. Thats been 5 yrs ago. In the process one of the workers resigned. Since that time the second has quit.
Destiny Rose (author) on May 28, 2015:
Exactly! 99 % of the time they can't get the warrant. This is the reason they use bullying to get into your house to take your kids.
Hello nrian - shoot me an e-mail through the contact button.

nrian on May 14, 2015:
Hi starme77, my wife & I had a few issues, I am a faithful, honest, loyal man & have been the whole six years. I potty trained & raised my step son Michael. We moved 6 hrs away started a new life, one day after never wanting to have a child because the beliefs my dad had & I always believed would happen in my time from a very young age, and I'm referring to the bible. & most of us know the woes ahead. hence the reason I didn't want to bring a life into something like that but one day I looked my wife in the eyes & told her I was going to give her a girl, that she was longing for. Any way, here we are 6 yrs into it & step son & my precious 2 yr old punkin. Serenity. Well she's been accusing me of everything & I haven't done a thing, we both did use meth. Believe me I'm not proud. But she has tried to commit suicide three times & Texas law if ur recording whats going on around u it is legal. As long as 1 party in the video knows. But I've tried for 5 of the 6 yrs to hold it together anyway, I finally said something to her aunt about it & said that I did want anyone involed. But guess what, I came home for lunch first day at new job. Cps sitting on the couch. & unfortunately I did not know what to do. So we both failed for that meth. & she had already spokin to michael at school just prior. & wife's aunt came to get the kids. & we can not be around them (they say) without supervision. What do I do? Because my daughter means everything to me & I was in a low spot but there was no harm coming to our kids except spankings for Michael strictly on the behind. Since ill be clean for now on, when they test me next & I'm clean should it be over? I would love some insight because this is horrible. I would talk to u any way that I could to get some advice.

If they are truly abused then yes but when a person has done nothing wrong then these MFers need to f off most people are just poor and have done nothing worng where is the justice for the ones who did nothing wrong
Krysten Vance on February 21, 2015:
I am a foster parent and my kids have all been removed from their home with just cause. When a 5 year old comes to me with a black eye and rashes from being shaken, there is no reason they should stay in that environment. Kids are not property. Kids have rights too. If they are being abused or neglected, it affects them as well. You might not have done anything deserving of having your kids removed but a lot of parents have.
ballmon on January 31, 2015:
I too had my granddaughter taken from her mother over 2 yrs ago. My mistake was in the very beginning I told the family just do everything they ask and the truth shall win. WOW was I wrong. They took her from her mother and because grandfather had two moving violation tickets they would not put her with us. They placed her in foster care the same day they took her. They told us that our daughter wouldn't give them any names of family members to contact. I knew that was a bold lie. After doing research I found out that DCFS is supposed to go above and beyond to find family members to place the child with. I called them on it, they said they didn't have to contact family. I found out that the lawyer for DCFS spoke about our case in front of another family. To there surprise we knew the family and they told us what had happened. I wrote the Attorney General, I wrote the Obunsman, I wrote the Assistant Attorney General and I wrote the Regional Director over DCFS. I sent a written statement by the family signed and witnessed. You know what we got in return? A phone call from the regional director stating "I have spoke with DCFS's attorney regarding this matter and he said he wouldn't let it happen again so this matter is over". I couldn't believe it!! I work for the government and if I would have done that I would have been terminated on the spot. That is when I realized we didn't have a chance. The parental rights were terminated within a 6 month period and she was adopted out 1 month later. I was able to get some money from my retirement within that 1 month, hire an attorney and get one day a month for 6 hours of visitation. That alone cost me $8000.00. That when I found out that for every child that is adopted out our state gets $4000 - $6000 per child from the federal government and then each individual involved from DCFS gets a hefty bonus. If thats not kidnapping kids for profit I don't know what is. One question has anyone ever heard of getting an adoption reversed if you can prove DCFS lied and didn't follow there policies at the time? As for Rose who thinks we need CPS if you think that every child that is taken by DCFS is abused or neglected you are sorely mistaken. It's when they are placed in foster care that they are beaten, starved and neglected. By your comments you have never had to deal with DCFS. I wouldn't wish that upon my worst enemy nor you either.
Rose on January 21, 2015:
I'm pretty sure CPS wouldnt be necessary if parents loved and provided proper supervision, discipline without beating the crap out of their kids, didn't starve and neglect children. Children aren't property to be taken advantage of and mistreated. By the story's we hear everyday in the news on the internet and even Facebook there is a great need for CPS. I've dealt with CPS to get custody of my nephew and nieces whose mother had 27 counts of child abuse and neglect against her, and a father who had parenting skills of a rock. He was given numerous chances to get his kids back and was to lazy, to selfish and put his gf before his kids. It's simple do what they tell you to get your acts together. Get off the pitty party and put your children first. CPS doesn't enjoy separating families, but they don't enjoy seeing burned, bruised, molested and neglected children either.
Joy Gardener from Oregon on January 17, 2015:
Great article.....thank you for sharing. More of us need to be speaking out on this subject, and protecting our children.
Destiny Rose (author) on August 28, 2014:
I am sorry you feel that way, I don't think CPS discriminates against black or white, they just want kids to sell, they do not care what color they are. Being poor is not a fun thing, However, being poor with the internet today dosn't necessarily mean being uneducated. I was poor, not a dime in my pocket, fourtanatly, we all have a constitution, at least for the time being anyway! Don't let them scare you just because you don't have money, they are just a buch of freaking bullies is all.

madashell on July 22, 2014:
My daughter was taken by DCF 9 months ago, Truancy was the main focus of their investigation. In the first 5 months of placement my daughter was moved 9 times, 4 of which where "Permanent Placements" enrolled in 4 schools, never missed a day of school but went "un-enrolled" in any school for weeks at a time. It took me over 7 months for them to finally place her with my mother, although I am not allowed to go over there. Our visits up until a week ago where 1 hour supervised at the local KVC office. When I ask why I am being punished and my daughter denied her mother, they say that I need to put my questions in writing and ask for a meeting. One of which they are suppose to have with me once a month according to the "Permanency Plan". They have slandered my name and reputation with the courts with false accusations such as "parent drug abuse" I was denied "Due Process" when my daughter was first taken into custody they didn't inform me of the time and day of the first initial hearing that took place during the first 72 hrs she was taken. And the list goes on and on. I am currently putting together all the documentation I can to meet with a Civil Rights Attorney. I am mad as hell and they are not going to let them get away with what they have done to me and my family. I have been robbed of valuable time with my child. My child has suffered greatly and has night mares every night and probably will for some time. Because of DCF and KVC, my daughter has truly become a "Child in Need of Care" and it's time that someone stand up and fight for their rights. They prey on the poor and those ignorant of the laws and of their Right. Well I may be poor but I know my Rights. And I WILL make a statement so loud and clear they will regret the day they messed with me and mine! One thing I have lost and will never get back is Time. Sweet, precious, valuable, Time.
Thanks for listening and LET'S GO GET'EM PEOPLE!

I don't know if anyone on here can help or give me any advice. Im in Florida and CPS took my children on April 15th they have done many things already that aren't by the Florida stautes. I had to fire my court appointed attorney and hire my own. I was granted a trial but in the meantime I'm without my children who miss me dearly. There is alot more to my story so if anyone is interested you can contact me via email. email@example.com. I not only had my rights violated but my 14 year old has been trying to speak out and no one not even the judge will allow her to tell her story. Then to make matters worse I have a disabled daughter who has just seen her doctor for the first time since all this took place. I think I should be suing CPS for Medical neglect. Then when you think it doesn't get any worse they have placed 2 of my 5 children with there father who has a extensive back ground for domestic violence and even had his oldest son removed by CPS for 6 months. I have 5 children in 3 different homes all about 2-4 hours apart. I need any advice for Florida anyone can give thanks- Arena

Great Advice :) Use the constitution - it does work :)

You can go to legalhelp.com and get whatever forms you need, to file in your next court hearting. You need to get the declaration page, fill in all what happened, and how cps stepped over your constitutional rights. You can also get affidavits for friends and family to fill out. Make sure your arrive early the morning of the court hearing, and have this paper work filed with the case. The judge has to by law read this during the court hearing.

@ starme77 I need your advised. I'm from Oregon as well and my children were taken away. CPS violated my rights but it seems like no one is there to help me not even court appointed lawyer. They are using PTSD against me. I'm a wounded Army vet. :( email me please at firstname.lastname@example.org
Destiny Rose (author) on May 22, 2013:
I could not afford an attorney and so I simply told DHS they were violating my constitutional rights, that helped alot to back em off. You may be able to find an attorney - if you are in court you should be able to have a court appointed one. Sue em, thats what I say

If your rights are violated, what can you do about it?

Destiny Rose (author) on May 14, 2012:

danette thomsen on May 14, 2012:
well just a follow up on my situation my children were taken by cps back in january my 2 yr old has dry skin condition. in the foster home they didnt take care of it she was severly broken out all the time she was there and now has contracted mersa. my children are with a family member now but my children have sufered so much since being placed in foster care and cps always had an excuse for everything!!
Destiny Rose (author) on May 01, 2012:
exactly -but sadly I dont think its going to stop honestly - people dont seem to care about anything until it directly effects them - and even then most are too cowerdly to speak up for themselves - its a sad thing - but true - I did speak up for myself and stand up for my constitutional rights and did not appear scared - only pissed and guess what? They didnt take my children - oh they tried to bully - I just bullied right freaking back :) and I can tell you this - they never once stepped a foot inside my house :)
deborah parks on April 30, 2012:
There are thousands of mothers today fighting to bring their children home from abusers, foster care and forced adoptions. There is no one to help us. We are losing our children and losing our minds. WHEN IS IT GOING TO STOP???
OUR CHILDREN ARE BEING ASSAULTED AND KILLED IN "CARE" AND WE CAN DO NOTHING TO STOP IT!!! please, tell law enforcement that we have a right to our children and cps workers and those who support them should be charged and arrested and our children should be returned to us NOW!
We are all dying inside, we can't eat, we can't sleep, we can't think, all we do is cry and rant and scream into our pillows, when we did nothing wrong... all we did was report abuse, or file for child support, or take them to the doctor when they were sick, or have them in a hospital!
Destiny Rose (author) on March 28, 2012:
Oh Wow I am so sorry to hear that - some times you can waste your time trying to find an attorney to deal with these jerks - don't put all your eggs in one basket - spend some time looking and some time reasearching and reading the constitution - the articles I have listed here - dont get too caught up in the emotional aspect of this - stick to facts and law and that way if u do not have your own attorney by court time - then you will be well armed to defend yourself - I have personally been through 7 different courts for 7 different things and only had an attorney 2 times the other 5 I won on my own even though the other side had an attorney :)
Mari on March 27, 2012:
I am sadly glad to know that I am not the only one who has been terrorized by a corrupt system! My story is rather long and complicated considering that I do live in a highly corrupt county and I have been set-up...Right now I need my son back home and an attorney with balls and passion for civil rights to represent me in federal court!
Danette Thomsen on January 06, 2012:

My adjudication hearing is Jan. 13they are trying to get my 2 boys after I was arrested at a neighbors apt. For their potpipe. They've had my 2 little boys every since. All my rights have been violated : due process, Miranda rights, search and seizure, and the list keeps adding up. Can someone help me save NY babies. My Charge was a misdeMor and the investigator lied on the affidavit about it but no one seems to care. Valerie 4793583628

I have been dealing with CPS in the lewis county area for the last year and 9months,looking at this and reading the info in this have have realized that I have had many of my rights violated on several occasions. I was reading in another web page that Washington state is the most sued state in CPS cases. That left me to wonder if what they said was true so that is why I have now began to research my rights as a parent. but anyway loved the article. Hope to see more
Destiny Rose (author) on July 10, 2011:
Oh... Wow ....Incredible! Good for you I totally love this, thank you so much for your encouragement moving forward and we should be friends on facebook if we are not allready - send me an e-mail I am under a different name there .... thanks again , much love and God Bless You :)

okay..I had to come read this again! You will never guess what I have done? (smiles sheepishly). One of the 50 states has illegally removed my children and I wrote a book about it. It is going to hopefully be out next month. The title is called "The Courage to heal, with you. Many miracles. I have my case all the way inside the Federal hands of the decision makers. I have trusted that God will vindicate those who have been robbed of their God given rights. I wish you blessings! I find you to be brave in talking about this subject. I admire and have deep respect for you and I am grateful that you are forgeing on~ take care..I had to vote up! Once again..
