It is important to not get crosswise with the CPS workers you encounter since they wield a lot of power and have a great deal of discretion in what recommendations they may make. Take a look at this page from the State of Washington's DSHS website about the workers' duties and other frequently asked questions:


Previous counsel raises a critically important point. CPS will use everything, including your attitude and your tone of voice, against you. They presume you are guilty before you even have a chance to defend yourself. Your concern that you are being set up is valid, and you must not alienate them, or you risk losing your parental rights. This situation merits a consult with a local family law attorney with experience in dependency work.

Gary Preble defends dependencies, and he's a nice guy. Perhaps he has a referral for you on the east side. He's in Olympia. Hope this helps. Elizabeth Powell
