Candidly, I am not a big fan of CPS. Their workers are generally overworked and underpaid, meaning it becomes unlikely that they will do a thorough job on any particular case.
Having said that, they can be a helpful resource in the right situation. If there is a case where a child is being abused or neglected, a call to CPS can quickly lead to the child's removal from the house. So you know, that does not necessarily mean that the child will be "in the system". Instead, CPS will first look to place the child with a relative. With the father being available, this would likely be their first choice.
This could be a good resolution for you, not only would the child be removed from the mother's home, but would then be placed with you. If your husband decides to pursue a modification of the custodial situation, this would certainly put him in a good situation.
