Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I assume the adjusted information that was given to me by the parent the week or so after our first conversation on the matter was actually the information they gave to the police from the start. CPS has already visited with us in our home and recorded some of the conversation she had with my son. A detective has recently contacted me requesting an interview and so I will hire an attorney at this point. I did voice my concerns to the CPS worker about the changes in the other parents story and my desire to hire an attorney, they encouraged me to speak with the police before hiring anyone. At that point I quit returning the calls and texts from the CPS worker because I no longer felt that they had my child's best interests in mind. If no one but me knows the description of the incident has changed, how can I possibly prove it?
