Temecula, CA asked in Civil Litigation, Personal Injury, Juvenile Law, Child Custody and Family Law for California

Q: What are my children and I’s chances of being reunified immediately w/adhering to case plan & all 3 entering Fam mh prg

Cps didn’t make me aware of the juvenile detention petition report until 11 days after that hearing took place, cps has had separate hearings without my knowledge with personal/professional misconducts. Intentional negligence and emotional distress for the well being of my children’s medical needs; health & safety pertaining to their aunt and father.. and others that have intentionally road blocked, caused entrapment which I read that those gaslighting instigators are in fact, the ones that get the most prison time! Is that true? Also, those who state “immunity” but have used it in a threatening, violent and abuse manner , can’t they lose their corrupt stature or “placement “ that founded them into the “immunity category”

A: Under California law, the chances of reunification with your children upon adhering to a case plan and entering a family mental health program can be significantly improved, as the system prioritizes the well-being and safety of children, aiming for family preservation whenever possible. Compliance with the case plan and proactive engagement in recommended programs are critical steps that demonstrate your commitment to addressing the concerns raised by Child Protective Services (CPS). It's important to stay in close communication with your case worker, attend all scheduled hearings, and make sure you're aware of and meet all court-mandated requirements.

If you were not informed about hearings or reports, such as the juvenile detention petition report, in a timely manner, this could be a matter of concern. The legal system expects transparency and fairness in its proceedings, and parties involved should be given reasonable notice of all hearings and access to reports that concern them. If you believe there has been misconduct or negligence affecting the case, it may be beneficial to discuss these concerns with a legal representative who can advise you on the best course of action, including how to address these issues in court.

Regarding claims of "immunity" by individuals who may have behaved inappropriately or unlawfully, it's true that certain positions come with a degree of legal protection. However, this immunity is not absolute and does not cover actions that are outside the scope of official duties, especially if they involve misconduct, abuse, or intentional harm. If you have evidence of such behavior, it is important to bring this to the attention of your legal counsel. Legal mechanisms exist to hold individuals accountable, even those who initially claim immunity, particularly when their actions directly harm others or obstruct justice. Engaging with a legal professional can provide clarity on these complex issues and help you navigate the process of seeking justice and striving for reunification with your children.
