I'm sorry to hear this happened.

No she does not have to take the drug test if there is not a court order.

The only way CPS can issue a drug test is if the person consents, or if there's a court order.

Of course if she denies the test, her refusal can be evaluated in light of any other information or ongoing investigation, and CPS can take further action accordingly.

However if there is not any other CPS investigation or reports, then that should not be an issue.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
