One bout is 17 & my little one is 11. My 17yr old ways to move to Arizona with his 22 yr old brother of which is ok but my 11 yr old is still going to stay with my aunt. I was threatened by CPS that I would have to sign my rights over as a mother to my aunt, But my 11 year old has his dad of which DOES want custody of him. CPS also said as soon as that happens they go away, but they don't want my son to go with him. PLEASE HELP
CPS is charged by law with overseeing and protecting children in its jurisdiction from abuse and neglect. Apparently, CPS is not inclined to allow the child's dad to have custody of the child. Therefore, CPS will probably not go away until its wishes are complied with, and it is assured that your 11 year old is safe. If you do not voluntarily follow the wishes of CPS, you could be taken into court, where CPS will ask the judge for an order compelling you to do as CPS says. I would also guess there is a lot more to this story than you have provided.
