Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Thanks for choosing Justanswer.com! I look forward to helping you today.
You can do two things: 1) you can get back with your ex and see if they take any more action against you and then you can sue, or 2) you can file a preemptive lawsuit alleging malicious misconduct and have your attorney subpoena all the records they will not let you have so that you can prove your case.
I am going to be honest here--CPS seems to do what they want and they are totally out of control and self-governing. However, if they do take your children away, you can apply for judicial relief and go through the court to have them overruled.
It certainly appears they did, but getting judicial relief because they violated your civil rights and judicial relief from them taking custody of your children would be two separate issues. Generally, CPS is immune from any legal action against them but if you can show their behavior was wanton and malicious, then you can overcome this immunity. I sure do wish you the best and would be happy to continue answering any more questions you have at this time. If you do not have any more questions, please don't forget to accept my answer as it is the only way I can receive credit for helping you. You will be charged nothing further for pressing accept. Thanks.
