You get a good attorney -- no two ways about it.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
Ms. McCall is correct.
CPS always strives for reunification of the parent and child. This of course means that the parent must be fit but there are basic needs such as shelter and food that they are looking to have met. I would hire an attorney that has your interests covered as CPS is not working for your interests but for the interests of the state.
I agree 100% with the responses above. GET AN ATTORNEY. Do not leave your child's well being and future to CPS. Take matters into your own hands. Best of luck.
