My 15 year old son is being accused of asking s younger

Customer Question
My 15 year old son...
My 15 year old son is being accused of asking his younger brother (by another mother) to touch him inappropriately.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My son is openly gay. He has only seen his brother while visiting at his father's home.. I have asked my son and his reaction spoke volumes. He is not the perpetrator.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $36 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

I want to know what to do. How do I proceed? Child services is asking to speak to my son. He doesn't have anything to hide, I'm just scared of how this is affecting him.
Lawyer: Maverick, Attorney replied 1 year ago

If you cannot afford to hire a lawyer to defend against CPS's demands, my suggestion would be that you contact a local court reporter and have the court reporter formally transcribe the meeting between CPS and your child. In other words, make that be a condition of your agreement to allow CPS to meet with your child. This will insure that any action that CPS tries to take is based on the truth of what your child actually said in the meeting as opposed to some contorted version of 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.
