We''ve signed a voluntary services agreement with DCFS in Snohomish County, Washington, under threat of CPS taking our baby and placing him in foster care. Not even three weeks after we signed and began their services (of the one's we've completed so far, all evaluations and tests have come back clean and favorable to us) we recieved a letter from CPS saying that their allegations were unfounded and that the case was closed. Because we "volunteered" our signatures, though, we're still being threatened with that "pick-up order" (where they take your child) unless we go for the one last evaluation.
They only give us one option for who to go to for the last evaluation, and it's a state-funded evaluator and treatment provider, who, it's pretty clear is only in business to process state funded cases.
Is it possible, to rescind our signatures since the original CPS case is unfounded and closed?
