I recently refused the offer of a associate of mine to be my child godmother. I found out her and her mother who I trusted plotted against me and used a CPS worker who I later found out was related to my associate to falsely accuse me of neglecting my kids who was later removed from my custody. She gave classified information about my case to my associate adding and lies on my kids.
Only the District Attorney can file a criminal case. When people talk about "pressing charges," they are usually asking whether a person is willing to cooperate with the police and prosecution if a case is filed.
You could make a report to local law enforcement, but that's usually a REAL:LY, REALLY BAD IDEA.
It sounds like you have a case in the dependency (CPS) court. You should express your concerns to your lawyer there. Failing to follow your lawyer's advice could have bad consequences.
This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer, and does not create an attorney/client relationship. You should always consult PRIVATELY with an attorney.
Feel free to complain, as you have, and perhaps contact her supervisor. I don't see this going anywhere beyond that and certainly no criminal charges would be forthcoming.

You cannot press charges, as you are not the district attorney. You can speak to the supervisor of the CPS worker involved, or at least try to do so. Good luck.
