Can CPS remove my newborn if I have a closed case in my past?
1 attorney answer
CAN CPS remove the child? Yes. It that likely assuming all facts you have stated as to your current situation are true (drug-free, safe and stable home, stable income, stable mental and physical health, no domestic violence, etc.)? No, it is not likely. However, there appears to be some disconnect from the facts of the past in regard to the ultimate outcome, which makes me question what may be missing from the history. You may wish to have a private lawyer on stand-by should CPS intervene following the birth.
