DOES ACS HAVE THE RIGHT TO DRUG TEST ME WHEN THE ALLEGATIONS THAT WERE SAID TO THEM ARE UNTRUE AND THERE ARE NO PROOF THAT I AM AN ABUSIVE PARENT?
STATEN ISLAND, New York
I HAVE TAKEN THE DRUG TEST HOWEVER WHEN I WENT TO THE CLINIC THE WORKER NOT ONLY SCHEDULED ME FOR A URINE TEST BUT ALSO A HAIR FOLLICLE WHICH HE STATED I WOULD NOT HAVE TO TAKE AS LONG AS I DIDNT REFUSE THE EXAM.
ACS WAS CALLED ON ME BY MY LANDLORD WHO IS CURRENTLY TRYING TO EVICT ME BECAUSE HE IS USING MY ELECTRICITY ILLEGALLY AND WE WONT PAY THE WHOLE BILL, HE TOLD ACS THAT I AM ON DRUGS AND THAT HE SAW ME INTOXICATED IN THE Driveway AND MY CHILD IS LEFT UNATTENDED WHICH ARE ALL FALSE ALLEGATIONS, DO I HAVE TO COMPLY WITH ACS? WHAT CAN I DO TO END THIS ACS CASE ?
Yes you have to comply. Even if you know the allegations are not true ACS does not know this so they have to do their legal duty and investigate to the fullest. You have to prove that you are innocent.

OK, BUT IF THE TEST COMES BACK NEGATIVE , THEN THEY SHOULD LEAVEME ALONE ... CORRECT? I DONT WANT THEM IN MY LIFE LONGER THAN NEED BE.
Yes if it is negative they should close the case as unsubstaniated and leave you alone.
