First off, having fought with CPS for 32 years, I agree that they bare often out of control in this country.

Tell me why you were taking care of the child and not her parents? Under what legal authority?

the father ,my son and the mother are drug adickes
Family Lawyer: Bruce Schreiber, Family Law Attorney replied 3 months ago

Was there any Court Order giving you custody or guardianship, or did the parents just decide to leave the child with you voluntarily? How long were you caring for the child?

everone on bothe sides of family want the mother to go to prison!!!
Family Lawyer: Bruce Schreiber, Family Law Attorney replied 3 months ago

OK, so if you were never the "legal" guardian or custodian you have few legal rights as they pertain to the child. Certainly you can offer yourself to CPS as a potential placement for the child, but if your son lives with you that is never going to happen. It also appears that, rightly or wrongly, CPS has concerns about your sobriety.

There is little you can do. Your son, however., must be sure to answer any papers he received from CPS and the Court... he and his Attorney cam be the ones who try to convince CPS that you would be an appropriate placement for the child and to place the child with you.
