do we say something to CPS?
« on: Jun 19, 2008, 10:18:45 AM »
There is a current investigation by CPS of BM and her drinking and domestic violence. Currently CPS told DH that if son goes to mom - he is liable for him and what transpires at mom's house.  Son is not going to mom's house, DH suspended visitation and DH filed this with the courts stating two different county CPS told us he is endangered and we would be investigated if we sent son there. Also added to the files of the court system that  if visitation is awarded again -  we want overnights suspended indefintely.

Son's middle school graduation was last night - BM was there supporting son, BUT she was trashed...meaning drunk. Do we say something to CPS about this? She does not drive (I am assuming she no longer has a license)...she was with her brother and nephews...and her daughter.... Son as stated before, is living with father and has been the past school year. The schedule was suppose to go back to 50/50 once school is over...again this isn't happening until the court orders us to.

DO we tell the social worker that BM was trashed again? We have a voice mail from BM a hour after we saw her (she left at 8:15 - she called at 9:30- her car ride is about 40 minutes)...anyway in her message she was slurring... not sure if this would be proof or not?

Thoughts?

to CPS if they asked.  If they are investigating her, there is a good chance they will question you about her???

There are two involved CPS agencies - one in her county and one in ours. CPS has already had a conversation with son at his school last week and they have already been to our house for a 45 minute talk with us.

CPS asked if we knew - we responded that we knew something was always wrong but we didn't know what. They asked about her turmoil and we told them that famly court has all the documenation on her moves and her relationship troubles with her DH (back and forth more than 10 times in 7 years) up to December of 2006. We told them that we have already tried to go through the court system to get son with us. They seemed a bit surprised at that and asked who was the judge.

We have a right to all the report information and the investigation since we are now a part of the reports, but we haven't been able to get a hold of the guy in her county to obtain more information. So we have already been questioned about her and I feel it is important to record she was trashed at a school function.... son said today that there were times she acted like she was drunk last night. :( Poor kid. We smelled it, and she was hugging all of us...so we knew something was different.....
