Can I deny a social security number to Cps?
2 attorney answers
Your failure to cooperate fully with CPS will send up a red flag to CPS that there is something wrong and you are hiding something. Your children could be taken and put into foster care simply because of you refusing to cooperate with CPS as a safety precaution. You reported that your children were abused so you certainly should be expected to fully cooperate.
The other option would be that your boyfriend leave immediately and you then tell CPS that he refused to divulge his social security number so you had him leave for the protection of the children. Of course, the termination of the relationship would need to be permanent, as CPS discovering him there at some point in the future would certainly trigger a problem.
Bottom line is if CPS is conducting an investigation that involves abuse of your children, you must fully cooperate or you risk very bad consequences.

It has been my experience with CPS that if they can't obtain the information necessary to do a background check on people living with a child (such as dates of birth and social security numbers), they may determine that such a person is not safe for the child to be around.
