What to do if CPS Shows up at Your Door / Journey Boost

Sometimes children are harmed in their homes. This does not make every parent a suspect. In our current hyper vigilant age, there are more parents being reported to CPS than ever before.

Loving parents who refuse a recommended medical treatment for their child can be reported by a doctor who might fear losing his license to practice medicine.
Neighbors or estranged family members may report a family despite the lack of grounds to support any allegations of abuse.
Parents with a sick child seeking a second opinion have been reported to CPS by hospital or medical authorities.

More parents are experiencing a visit from CPS than ever before, and since sometimes those visits have resulted in the quick removal of children – despite no grounds to allegations or harm or abuse – it is critically important for every parent to have a good idea of how to respond to a CPS visit. Don’t think ‘it can’t happen to me.’ Take any visit by CPS seriously.

The most significant mistakes made by parents are usually in the very first encounter. If you can understand how to handle the very first encounter with CPS you can increase your chances of maintaining your family’s rights and freedom. CPS will often seek to take a family by surprise. Be prepared.

1. THE KEY: Be polite & SAY AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE. You might be terrified inside. You might be absolutely angry if you feel there is injustice going on, but the number one thing you can do is stay calm and be polite. Anything you say can be twisted. Do NOT DEFEND YOURSELF. Do NOT volunteer information.

2. Do NOT let them in your house. Be nice but STAY FIRM. Have one statement ready and repeat it over and over “I know you are just doing your job, but my main obligation is to my children and to help them avoid unnecessary trauma.” If they do not have a warrant and there is no obvious emergency, they are not allowed access to your home. If a police officer is with them, they all know it is illegal to enter a home unless you CONSENT, or unless they have a warrant or can hear an emergency situation going on. DO NOT CONSENT.

3. Ask permission to ask THEM questions. “I realize you are just doing your job. Would it be ok if I asked you a couple of questions?” Ask if you can record the conversation. If you need to get your cell phone, close the door and say, “I need to get something.”

“Firstly, do you have some identification? After you get their ID, write down their name, then ask, “Can you give me the name and phone number of your supervisor.” Write it all down. Take your time.

Next “What are the exact allegations that have been made against me? Federal law requires that I should be informed of any allegations against me.”

Ask them if they have a warrant. Be direct. “Do you have a warrant to search my home or speak to my children?”
Without a warrant they must gain your consent to enter your home or speak to your children. They are doing their job. Their supervisor has instructed them to make this visit and they will use whatever tactic they feel will be effective to GET MORE INFORMATION AGAINST YOU. They may alternate between: trying to be nice, being firm, threatening or trying to bargain with you. Stay immune to every tactic. Know your rights. Do not get caught up in their games. Don’t engage them except on the questions above.

4. Tell them you are going to contact your attorney and when you get them on the phone, you will allow them to speak to your attorney. Close the door. Phone your attorney so the attorney can speak to the CPS social worker and help them to leave. Your attorney will know the law and remind the social worker of your rights. It is always a good idea to have an advocate on your side.

What do I do if I don’t have an attorney?

If you are a Christian and Homeschooling you might like to consider joining Heritage Defense.

[1] If you are homeschooling you might like to join Home School Legal Defense Association who will defend you against allegations by social services as they pertain to homeschooling. Both organizations require a monthly or yearly fee but are available for telephone help immediately in any emergency situation you might face.

I pray you will never need to use this information. Unfortunately, in the present time of extensive government involvement in the lives of parents, many parents have found themselves in complex situations with CPS. It is better to be forewarned and forearmed. Your number one desire is to protect your children from harm. Too often CPS has brought more harm than help.

Please share your tips for keeping your family safe from unwarranted intrusion in the comments below.

Deadbeat dad who “died” to get out of paying child support pays $10k, sentenced to jail/ Fox6Now

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The deadbeat dad who “died” to get out of paying child support, has finally paid up – but will still spend the next 60 days in the Milwaukee County House of Correction.

John McCroy, who goes by the rap name “Jakitdown,” was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years of probation, after pleading guilty to two charges of felony failure to pay child support. McCroy, who lives at home with his parents and doesn’t have a job, managed to pay more than $10,000 in outstanding child support, interest and fees in March. According to his lawyer, McCroy’s grandfather gave him the funds.

McCroy garnered Internet fame after he told FOX6 reporter Meghan Dwyer that he couldn’t pay his child support because he died in a car accident. His interview went viral, as Milwaukee County prosecutors started gathering evidence for their case against him by searching through social media records on Facebook and Instagram.

He had only paid $100 in child support since 2009 when his daughter was born. He was in a car accident in 2010. He subsequently tried to claim he was disabled, which was why he couldn’t pay child support. He told the Milwaukee County family court he was unable to work because of his disability.

However, authorities determined he was not disabled back in 2011. In 2013, while serving time in the House of Correction for an unrelated crime, he was allowed work release. Records show he worked as his uncle’s automotive shop 10 hours a day, five days a week including, overtime. However, he failed to pay child support during that time period.

His mother, a corrections officer for Milwaukee County, wrote this letter to the judge, arguing her son was disabled, even though as recently as 2013, county records show he was employed full-time.

Prosecutors say they found videos of him partying a night clubs in Milwaukee just months after his accident occurred. They also saw evidence, in photos and videos, of him working out at a gym and running on a treadmill. This is more evidence, they argue, that he was fully able to work and pay child support.

“We found photos dating back to February 2010, which was less than three months after his accident, which showed the defendant partying in night clubs,” prosecutors told the judge last week.

When asked about all of the money McCroy is seen flashing on his Facebook and Instagram pages, his lawyer argued it was “prop” money, used by local rap artists in their music videos. His lawyer told the court McCroy is not a rapper, is not signed with a label, and makes no money from his so-called musical career.

In the summer of 2014, McCroy told FOX6 he made his money selling mixtapes.

The mother of his daughter, Canience Haynes, says she’s relieved the case is over and she’s happy the judge sentenced him to jail. But she’s not optimistic he’ll keep up with the payments.

“His first and last payment was in 2010 and he only made these payments because of what was going on. He won’t make nothing else,” Haynes says.

Once he’s released from jail, he will need to pay $100 a month in child support as a condition of his probation. If he doesn’t do that, he will be sent back to the House of Correction.

There Could Soon Be a Pill to Make Us More Compassionate / Time

with one comment

How brain chemistry influences compassion

Biology may have a lot to do with our behavior, especially in social situations. And that means our social interactions could be manipulated by a pill.

That’s what a new study, published in the journal Current Biology, suggests. A group led by researchers at University of California Berkeley and University of California San Francisco shows that by manipulating a brain chemical, people can become more compassionate and act in prosocial ways to equalize differences.

In the study, 35 men and women visited the labs two times; each time they were randomly given a pill that keeps levels of dopamine, which is involved in reward and satisfaction, or a placebo. Neither the participants nor the scientists knew which pills were given when. The volunteers were then asked to divide money between themselves and a strangers.

When the researchers analyzed the results, they found that when the people were given the dopamine drug, they were more likely to share the money equitably compared to when they took the placebo.

The results certainly aren’t the answer to promoting more compassion in society, but they do hint that behaviors like social interaction might be affected by changing basic biological systems in the brain. “We have taken an important step toward learning how our aversion to inequity is influenced by our brain chemistry,” Ignacio Sáez, one of the study’s authors and a postdoctoral researcher at Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, said in a statement. “Studies in the past decade have shed light on the neural circuits that govern how we behave in social situations. What we show here is one brain ‘switch’ we can affect.”
