Pro-se litigant is seeking a list of questions that can be asked to examine/cross examine a CPS investigator. Intent is to prove innocence. CPS worker closed the investigation and did not refer the matter to the juvenile court but the fact that a CPS worker was appointed/involved is being used/abused by the other party to claim abuse occurred.
Try to find holes in their report and inconsistencies in their testimony.
he response given is not intended to create, nor does it create an ongoing duty to respond to questions. The response does not form an attorney-client relationship, nor is it intended to be anything other than the educated opinion of the author. It should not be relied upon as legal advice. The response given is based upon the limited facts provided by the person asking the question. To the extent additional or different facts exist, the response might possibly change. Attorney is licensed to practice law only in the State of Arizona. Responses are based solely on Arizona law unless stated otherwise.
It depends on the report you are concerned with and any information that may have not been in the report. An attorney cannot answer this question on a post such as this. If you do not want to retain an attorney or cannot afford one, go to legal aid or consult with an attorney.
if you can, I would set the deposition of the CPS worker prior to trial. Also ask for her/his entire file related to your case. You never want to ask a question at trial you don't know the answer to. Ask for the basis for her /his decision and what facts she/he relied upon when making the final report. Hope that helps!
