If you are being investigated by Child Protective Services (CPS) in Arizona, it can be a very emotional and confusing time. It's important to keep in mind that CPS is attempting to keep your child safe from abuse and neglect, and that they must follow certain policies when they receive a report. CPS can remove your child from your home if they have probable cause to believe that the child is or will be abused or neglected, or if the child will be subjected to "imminent harm." An imminent harm situation might include the following:
CPS may be able to offer some alternatives to removal from the home, depending on if they believe these alternative measures will protect the child. If you’d like more information on alternative measures, speak with your case manager or Scottsdale family law attorney.
