Thank you for your follow-up, Benny.This is pure speculation on my part, but CPS generally makes decisions on what they deem to be in the 'best interest' of the child. If the child is going to reside with someone who has a history of abuse or neglect or domestic violence that has already been found to exist by CPS (the past complaint), then there is a higher likelihood and propensity that this abuse can occur again, specifically against your granddaughter. CPS would see your spouse as potentially dangerous for this child due to past behavior, and CPS would naturally be worried about placing the grandchild in an atmosphere where such a potential issue can come up again. Since you do live together, that likelihood of abuse or neglect statistically rises, and that makes CPS worried of a resurgence. If you live apart from your spouse and you personally are 'fit', that is not then an issue and you can take the child into your home, but if you reside together, there is a potential again for this violation that took place before. Frankly you need to know what the whole story is behind the past CPS issue, since it is directly affecting your ability to take the grandchild into your home, but this is why CPS is not likely going to be willing to have you take the child.Good luck.
