Help CPS has kidnapped my grandson

Jeanie - posted on 05/14/2016 ( 5 moms have responded )




My grandson was removed from my daughters home 1 week ago. I was allowed to talk with him for a few days, then they moved him. They will not tell me where he is or let me talk with him. They made up statements I am suppose to have said and are using that to keep him from talking to me. They are statements I never made. They are lying. How do I handle this, what do I do? Someone where can help me.

CPS removed the child from his mother for a reason (whether either of you agree w/ that reason or not). What was the reason and what is she doing to rectify the situation?

The best thing you could probably do is to keep calm and help your daughter to comply w/ whatever CPS is requiring of her.

There's more to this that you aren't telling us.
CPS don't take "kidnap" children, they remove children from unsafe homes. That's not kidnapping, it's protecting the child.

CPS did not kidnap you grandson, they can only remove a child from a home with just cause. That said, when a child is removed from a parent's charge, they are generally place with a family member rather that foster care. Why do you think they did not permit you to take temporary custody of the child? Do you think that they believe you'd have broken a no contact rule? How old is this child and why was he taken from your daughter?

Do you have any custodial authority over the child?

What DID you say the last time you spoke with him? Did you say anything that in any way could have been seen as a potential threat to his current caregivers?

If CPS has removed your daughter's child, they do have a case file, and evidence to do so. If they are not allowing contact with that child, it is generally to protect the child while an investigation is occurring.

If you are contacted, cooperate. Do not issue threats, even veiled ones, or utter anything that may be taken as such. If you said anything like "I will come get you right now, they will not keep me away", that is considered threatening behaviour.

Also, your daughter need to comply with what she's told to do in order to regain custody.
