Know Your Rights — Don’t Expect the CPS Worker to Tell You

19 May

Your Foster Care Rights Virginia

There are many procedural safeguards built into the CPS system for Virginia.  Unfortunately, they are not always properly followed.   This Virginia guide’s description almost seems foreign to the draconian way Arlington DHS operates.   They violate this guide’s rules in many of the cases we have seen.

Unfortunately, the Arlington JDR and Circuit Court’s regularly fail to enforce these requirements, so the Arlington DHS gets away with being sloppy (and dangerous to kids and their families)

So, don’t trust the Arlington CPS worker to tell you of your rights.  Read this pamphlet and get some good (independent) legal advice.  [Better yet, get your kids out of Arlington]
