Evans, GA asked in Child Custody and Family Law for Georgia

Q: My sister has a CPScase & I got put in middle of it bc she liv with me, am I part of her case or do I have a separate

My sister whom lived with me during pregnancy, during labor at hospital she tested positive for drugs so CPS visited her in hospital did their routine stuff, and case worker and police showed up at my door being as my house was also her place of residence, they did their thing and placed my kids on a safety plan with their grandmother without a failed drug test from me or my kids father! We were drug tested couple days after our tests were negative so the safety plan was lifted , we got out kids and were able to go home.

My question is, was I simply involved in her case due to the fact my sister lived with me or did CPS open a whole separate case for me because of my sister living with me? AND since both my partner (father of my kids) and I passed out drug screens and our safety plan was lifted are we now uninvolved with my sister case or if we had a separate case, is that case now closed????

A: This is a question that we really can't answer without knowing the details of the case. You could contact CPS to inquire about your status in regard to this situation. We would need to know the facts in detail to provide you with more information and direction. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
