You relax. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about. So they might come to your house and investigate, if you dont do drugs, take a test to prove it. Once they find out it was lies hopefully the file is closed and life goes on. I have had it happen to me twice, both times the file was closed after the 1st visit.

It happened to me so all I can say is if you know you didnt do anything wrong dont worry about it.It is very annoying and frustrating.But in my case I actually had a pretty good idea who did it so when my case was closed after 45 days I filed a complaint and am currently pursuing charges against them.

If child services doesn't pursue a case you should be ok. If they do then they will come in and look at the home situation and drug test you and go over the medications you have. I have a friend who went through this and as long as you are cooperative it shouldn't be too bad. They can't arrest you or take your children away without physical proof of problems, they cannot just go off of what someone said because some people are just spiteful and call for no reason. Just be strong and confident and care for your children the way you have been and everything will work out!

Prove them things to cps. I called CPS on my daughters father to try to get supervised visitation and his wife lied bout the same things on me. I went and took my drug test and had my home looked at and my side was clear. If it is proven that the person made a false statement they can be prosecuted for it.

Someone did the same thing to me, more than once. The only thing you can do is fully corporate with them and their investigation... though I have to be honest, I was always very rude to them. They were just doing their jobs, but every time they were called all of the accusations were bogus and they never took my son.... so they should have gotten the hint after the third or fourth time that he was fine! If you don't have anything to hide, don't worry, they can't take your kids without PROOF.

You go with the flow. There's nothing you can do. They have to investigate. If you have nothing to hide then don't worry about it.

Do everything you can to cooperate with CPS. If they ask for a drug test, take it, if they ask to snoop through your dresser drawers, open them for them. If you show them that you have nothing to hide and your kids are healthy, they'll be able to see the truth. But, if you fight them, not letting them in, or avoiding their questions they'll think you have something to hide. CPS is pretty good at figuring out where the truth lies. You'll be fine.

They can't do anything without proof but if I were you I would do anything I could to clear my name. My parents had cps called on them for our house being a mess, they came and discovered that the house really was a mess but all the kids were healthy and cared for so they left it alone and the social worked came over a few times to help with laundry and make the kids clean up while our parents worked(my Grandpa was always home with us but didn't get around very well). There were 10 kids in the house and both parents worked so no duh it was a mess.

There really isn't anything you can do about it. If nothing is wrong they will come visit and that will be the end of it. If you know who did it you can take them to civil court and hopefully put an end to their mischief....
