Because the consequences to you are so severe if CPS believes your ex, it is in your best interests to hire a lawyer. They will investigate to see if there is any basis for the things he is saying, but if the drug test returns a positive result for meth, it is likely they will take your kids, at least temporarily. In that scenario, the children would usually go to stay with their other parent. You'd be able to request visitation. Most judges will ask you to take some kind of drug treatment program and prove sobriety for a set amount of time before reconsidering custody. Hiring a lawyer now could help.
You should also be prepared to introduce any evidence you have that the other allegations were false, and a lawyer can assist with that, too.
