Great question above. As a former prosecutor, I have worked with CPS in numerous instances. CPS can take children for cause and cause can be any sort of neglect which personal hygiene, teeth fall under.

Customer
where do they take them? do they warn before taking them?
img

DustinJ1119, Expert

They do not give notice and they are placed in foster/temporary care.

Customer
not with relatives or other parent?
img

DustinJ1119, Expert

If they were the foster that was identified, it could be but it all depends.

Customer
they do it without prior investigation?
img

DustinJ1119, Expert

Investigation can take up to 45 days, but children are removed during this time.

Customer
removed after or without investigation?
img

DustinJ1119, Expert

Removed during and before investigation is complete.

Customer
decayed teeth is imminent danger or there should be another reason for that?
img

DustinJ1119, Expert

It can be, goes toward neglect.

Customer
imminent danger is when its life threatening?
Customer
what if the dentist said to wait until permanent teeth?
img

DustinJ1119, Expert

That can go to defense, but everything you shared thus far is legal for CPS to have done.

Customer
they can do what they want? nice democracy...

Again, I just share rule of law, I do not create the laws. Sorry for what you are going through. Let me know if I may assist you with anything else, happy to help.

Customer
they take without proper evidence?
img

DustinJ1119, Expert

Again, that is not an accurate statement and I am sorry for what you are going through. They remove based on reporting and have up to 45 days to investigate while the children subject to the report are removed and this is legal.
