Their credo is...MEN ARE ABUSERS.
WOMEN ARE VICTIMS.
CHILDREN ARE OURS
This is the "Dirty Tricks" section that isn't in the policy manual, but ought to be, on how to take and keep children.
1)Forget the law and regulations. They do! They use illegal police state tactics, and have all the power. They fear the law no more than Cornelius Vanderbilt, the great "robber baron" financier and railroad builder of the last century did. Child Services has everyone, even judges and lawyers, scared of that power.
Child Services doesn't seem to know the difference between actual abuse and minor harm, and takes thousands of children every year from families who have not abused them. Spanking, arguing, accidents, even praying, are now considered to be abuse or neglect. If you have intentionally abused your children, that is a different story, and you should get a lawyer to help you.
Most people simply do not believe that a government agency charged with helping families would use these police-state tactics. Believe it. Sometimes it takes months of being on the business end of their dirty tricks before a person finally realizes that the Child Services agent is NOT their friend. This information will help you shorten that process of disbelief, and allow you to start protecting yourself before more damage is done to your family.
This material is not a substitute for good legal help. You need a good, dedicated lawyer in order to win. To have a chance against them, you and your lawyer must fight like your children's future depends on it. It does.
2)Child Services will pretend to help you, when they are really gathering evidence to take your children. It's a new police state out there. So remain silent.
3)They will try to get you to talk. SHUT UP!! Everything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law to take and keep your children.
4)Child Services will abuse and traumatize your children themselves.
5)They will try to get one parent to say incriminating things about the other, especially about domestic abuse.
6) They will try to get your child to make ‘disclosures' about you, using manipulation, coercion, and fear.
7)They will try to make sure you get a lawyer who will work with them, not against them.
8)After they take your children, the court must give you a hearing within 72 hours. They rarely do. At the hearing, CS will rarely meet the legal standard for keeping custody of your children, but will do so anyway.
9)They will try to get into your home to do an assessment, but will use the evidence gathered there against you to take your children.Their snitch network is like Fidel Castro's Committees for the Defense of the Revolution. They will report any suspicious activity, and your kids disappear.
10) They have a network of "mandated reporters" everywhere your child is, to snitch on you. All helping professionals are required to report you if they suspect abuse; The people you think will help you don't.
11)If they take your children, they will keep them a year, and try to adopt them out. They earn up to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year per child taken, and keep a lot of cronies in work.
12)They will try to get you to sign a "treatment plan" that will incriminate you, and help them get information to make their case against you.
13)will withhold key records that you need to make your case, even though they are required by law to give them to you.(use audio and video to protect yourself)
14)They allow you to challenge their findings of abuse - But their own agents do the review, usually a year or two later, and call it a "Fair Hearing".
15)Although the law requires them to place your children with relatives, they will try to stop it.
16) If they can't get you for abuse or neglect, it will get you for not stopping abuse and neglect by your partner.
17)If you do not "suck up" to the social worker, you will never get your children back. They will be unnecessarily intrusive.
