Wow, I'd be upset too! She didn't leave a card or something so you could call her?

Know your rights. You do NOT need to let her in or let her see your children if she doesn't have a warrant. You do not even need to meet with her without a warrant.

Legal aid? Check the social services listings in your phone book, there is likely a number for free or low cost legal help.

Good luck, mama. Be strong!

It's disturbing and probably one of my worst nightmares. Who in the world would have called? (There's no chance it was your husband, is there? I hate to even suggest it : but...) My Ex has threatened to call CPS so many times just because he's an angry man, that I fully expect a visit sooner or later.

I hope it's nothing... I've heard they have to follow up every call they get. And maybe whomever made the call was mistaken. I'm sending calm, soothing vibes your way, mama!

It could be nothing. Talk to the woman on the phone when she calls you back. Depending on what she says, make a decision on how you want to proceed from there.

Also, I'd do some thinking. Any angry neighbors or business associates with a grudge?

Desirae, sorry this is happening. I'm sure it's nothing, but I'd be really careful about everything anyway. Keep a log of dates and times and names of people you talk to. Don't let anyone in your house. Try to resolve this over the phone. If you do meet the lady in person, take notes during the meeting. If this turns into something, let me know. I used to represent parents in CPS cases, and I've seen a lot of the crap CPS does wrong.

I'm glad you weren't there when she showed up so you have time to prepare. You won't be as shocked and flummoxed when she arrives. I hope it all goes great.

Was she able to tell you why? You and your precious son will be in my thoughts. Best of luck to you. I would contact legal aid before you go tomorrow. Why take the baby with you?

Ever since I came across some old CPS threads on this site, this has become my greatest fear. I'm seriously talking to DH about choosing a place to live based on how much discretion the state law gives CPS. And panicking about my dirty dishes.

I'm sure you are a wonderful mother and praying that that comes across in your phone conversation and that she drops it after that.

Let us know what happens tomorrow.

ETA: (simultaneous post) Praying for you.

At least the visit is at her office so she can't go snooping into your kitchen sink or the books you read.

Make sure triple check that you have everything a baby could possibly need with you.
