I am in a voluntary cps referred outpatient program due to a positive voluntary drug test. Cps told me a physician from the lab would call to discuss my current medications but that after more than a month has not happened. I am a single mother and I am in group sessions three days a week with extra assigned hours on weekends for outside meetings. My follow up drug tests have been negative and or showing lowered levels. They are now trying to force me off a prescription for which I am prescribed for my arthritis. I am a vet and I need this time to be looking for full time work. My daughter is still with me and no recommendation for removal has been made. I need to know my rights. I have had to turn down interviews because of this and I need to work.

I am wondering the rights of a parent to be present during an interview with a childJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I am looking into who to contact and if my rights have been violatedJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I allowed the cpi to check on the child and the others in the home. I told her I was not comfortable not being present in the interview due to the sheriff officer making inappropriate statements when I said this is crazy we do not abuse our children. Cop said to mom under breath that is what they all say. I refused the interview and the case worker still asked my child how he got a mark on his face. She also tried to take two pictures at different times and the mother said no.
