What should you do if CPS knocks on your door? (Christina Davis)
The first thing you need to keep in mind is that there is no rule that says you have to talk to CPS. You don’t have to talk to them, you don’t have to answer their questions, you don’t have to go to their office. And you probably shouldn’t. The second thing to keep in mind is that you have the right to say no if they ask you if they can interview your children. Sometimes they don’t ask. They can go to the children’s school and interview them before you ever even know that there’s a CPS case happening, but if you get the option to say no, say no. The third thing you need to do is hire an attorney, even if it’s only for the investigation. Keep in mind that hiring an attorney doesn’t mean you’ve done anything wrong or that you have anything to hide. To me, hiring an attorney says I don’t want to risk my kids.
