A: I do not understand what is a 'Cys". If you mean CPS, then you are asking us to advise you as to whether simply leaving your child with child protective services is okay. Simply leaving your child is never okay no matter how futile the proceeding is against the child protective apparatus. However, if you do depart, your parental rights to the child will be terminated by the family court judge and the child will be adopted by whomever wants to be a parent to eh child.
