Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
CPS is the most incompetent, negligent and abusive agency you will ever deal with. Their social workers lie and even fabricate evidence to achieve their warped sense of what should be done. Verbal and non-violent arguments ARE NOT a ground to go to domestic violence classes, all people argue except in these warped social workers' fantasy land. Unfortunately, when it comes to the protection of children CPS holds all the legal power and the courts are even sometimes afraid of them until parents challenge these crazy social workers and put them on the stand to show that they are making cases where there really is nothing.
At this point, YOU are going to have to take CPS to court to fight for your rights. You are going to have to put evidence on that while you do have arguments, they are verbal argument and nothing close to violence. Furthermore, if you are able to prove that the children told the social worker this to begin with, once the custody issue is over in court, you can sue the social worker personally for illegally taking your children based on fabricating this evidence about domestic violence.
As far as the DWI, if you were under the influence of medication, even legitimately prescribed medication, and it was a controlled substance then they could charge you with DWI I am afraid and unfortunately, the LA courts are going to make you have an attorney or a court attorney represent you in that case as well.
The only way to really protect yourself against CPS though is using an attorney immediately to represent you to get this matter into court against them to get a court order to get your children released and have the domestic violence classes rescinded as well.
