|Yes, it's theoretically possible for CPS to put the child in foster care- I HAVE heard stories of women abused by their partners and then further abused by the system that's supposed to protect them. However, that isn't very likely.|
i worked the system for 9 years.
this CAN, though rarely, happen -- and it is sad -- but it comes down to what is best for the child...and if the mom is not found to be able to protect the child, or if there are real qwuestions of abuse to the child, and there is indications mom might have a hand it in -- or was knowly allowing it to occure without protecting the child -- the child can be removed --- but we all need to remember -- it is very diffcult to get a child removed from parental custody.
in a case like this -- as it seems on the surface (and the surface is often very differnt than the reality below) i would expect the mom to get the child and to get services. as Ruthie pointed out CSP will need to assess the child is not being, and has not been, abused and that the mom has a safe home for the child and that the child has no contact or only approved contact, with the father......
CSP can be a great help -- espcaily in cases of abuse and divorce and custdoy.
