I am a teacher aide and four months ago a case was open against me through the children's protective services. The superintendent informed me and since then I have been at home waiting to be contacted. Noone has contacted me in regards to the case. I've been in contact with the superintendent and he has not heard anything either. I need help finding out what is going on with this case. I need to return to work.
Contact the Children Protective Services office that opened the case. There should be someone assigned as the case worker to your particular matter. Ask them what's going on, and how much longer this will be open.
If they won't answer you, then you might need to hire an attorney to investigate or take legal action and force them to do something.
At this time, I am not sure that you need an attorney. follow up with an email to CPS. Create a paper trail. Ask them to get back to you in 48 hours so that a case person can be assigned, and you are able to get movement on the case. If this is a helpful answer, an Avvo "helpful " acknowledgement would be appreciated !
Good luck !
This is not a legal opinion given the question that you posed. It is guidance based on common sense recommendations that you may choose to consider and some thoughts to help clarify the matters that you ask about. I am licensed only in the state of Texas. There are many other facts that exist or may arise that you did not express in your question in this forum that are/could be critical to providing an accurate response. Thus, the response I give is very general. I strongly suggest getting a private consultation with an attorney. That is likely to be in your best interest if you have a legal problem , question, concern, or need. Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you. Best of luck !
