Yes, you have the right, as her mother, to receive medical information of your child, unless you were using that information in an inappropriate manner. If CPS continues to interfere with this right, you may have to contact the social worker’s supervision or go to court and ask that any such...Read more »
Ideally, it should have been done. That being said, I would encourage you to consider reaching out to lawyer experienced with criminal law and personal injury, as cases like this tend to have components of both areas.
Provided that the warrant was a valid warrant, then law enforcement would be able to search that room with very little exception. That being said, the warrant validity could be challenged, especially if they presented false or misleading information to secure the warrant.
