Can child protective services interview my children alone?

Easton, PA |

I specifically told them not to interview my children without me present or an attorney present and they did anyway. Is this legal?

Absolutely. The case worker has an absolute right to see the child and interview the child without any influence or interruption from the parent. When school's in session, they usually go there. The idea is that children might not be truthful about the allegations of abuse or neglect the agency is investigating if the alleged abuser is standing right there. I hope you found this helpful.
