A number of CPS reports have been filed against the mother of my oldest son, whom I don't reside with. A recent report was filed against her due to alleged physical and verbal abuse of my son, resulting in a walk-through of one another's home. When speaking to a caseworker at my home, they confirmed that the mother had been "indicated", but I have only received reports that state the claim(s) were "unfounded". Mind you, we reside in different counties, so our homes were visited by representatives of our counties. I called the CPS workers of the mothers county and he states that a report can be unfounded, but indicated at the same time. I cannot locate any literature supporting this claim for the life of me. Is this possible?
A report can be indicated and unfounded. For example, say a person allegedly strikes their child multiple times while under the influence of alcohol. It could be indicated for excessive corporal punishment but unfound for excessive drug and/or alcohol use depending on the evidence.
