If you will pass a drug test including a hair follicle test then offer to take on. If your house is appropriate then let them in. If you suspect you have any reason to be worried on these issues then simply and politely tell them that you would like to speak with a lawyer and will get back to them within a week. Please note that if a def investigator and supervisor think your children should be removed then they have the power to do that for 96 hours. During that time they will seek an order from a judge for longer and will only submit their side of the story tot he judge, If that happens you won't get your first hearing to say they were wrong for about a month. Be very cautious here and speak with counsel either way.
