They have no desire for the truth . They have their own agendas and funds for what they do. And there is NO over seeing their wrong doings whatsoever.

My hopes are that somebody comes through for you! Your situation sounds similar to many I have heard before, mine included. CYFD takes the children for a number of reasons - NON of them valid nor good! CYFD likes to make themselves look good on paper for the grant money & money allocated by the State & other sources. My granddaughter was taken away both parents had outstanding warrants, child was not left with me because the "Mother" has a personal vendetta against me. She has contacts at CYFD and her envy/greed took over saying she did not want her child with (me), the grandmother.
So CYFD & sherrif's dept do exactly as the mind-sick mother dictates! She's only 22 with addictions since childhood, I am a retired senior from working with the state of NM and over 30 years experience in working with infants and children, but I don't go around asking people in state government to make-up phoney reports & lie! And yet CYFD takes the side of the mother no questions asked!?@ CYFD removes the screaming child who clearly desires to remain in the home she has been in all her life, with her grandmother!
You'd think those workers would see the bond between us, but we're not theatrical nor as dramatic as the mother, we didn't scream louder, cry harder, nor act out overtly emotionally as much as the mother (a real drama queen), it wouldn't be so sick if it were at least genuine on her part. CYFD removes the child regardless of our cries they do not take the proper information & show no compassion for a young child or a grieving senior. I do know this....NO CRIME GOES UNPUNISHED!

I disagree strongly that these comments come from "Uneducated individuals" I believe these comments come from personal experience just as mine do. CYFD employees have been investigated and fired following allegations that were proved to be true about those responsible for protecting children are themselves abusers.

Obviously you either work for CYFD or know someone who does and you're also protecting these criminals.

THE STORY OF SKYLER LOGAN TERRAZAS I AM Skyler Logan Terrazas, I am a 11 year old boy I am a very active , bright young, boy. I love skateboarding at the skate park, riding my bicycle, going to the movies, solving Rubicís cubes and puzzles, camping, fishing, playing chess. I have ADHD, I live with my mom, sister Chantal, and lilí sister Aurora. I love hanging out with my friends, Daniel heís my best friend.I love going to the movies with my dad every Sunday. I have 5 brothers and sisters. I love my family. I love my cat his name is elephant.I like going to school (sometimes&#9786;), and I especially love my little sister Aurora. Sheís my best friend even more then Daniel. One Sunday night (October 11, 2006) after going to the movies with my dad we came home to find the police at our apt. My mom was there and Chantal and Joe Anderson,
(Chantalsí boyfriend.) My dad just dropped us off. We went inside and the cops where being very mean to my mommy. Next
thing you know theyíre taking Chantal, Aurora, and I away in a strange car with a strange lady. I will never forget that first night in a weird cold bed. A few days went by and then my sister Kristara and her husband Frank come into a office and they let us go home with them, we were so excited to stay with them. We stayed there for a few weeks, then the weird people in the cars came again and took me and Aurora away then to make matters worse they separated me from my lilí sister, and gave Chantal back to my mom Iíll never forget that day it crushed me. The next six years are a blur of mean foster parents, lonely nights in cold, weird beds, in and out of several different mental institutions. I had a hard time finding a new parent because, I wanted mine back, my mom is innocent. CYFD blocked all communications with any of my family. Throughout my last years I have been staying at Seqouyah Adolescent Treatment Center. I take so many medications now I canít see straight. Donít worry I kept telling myself I can get out when I turn 18 and go home. Well I just turned 18 and they are not letting me go home. I miss my life I used to have. WHY did CYFD do this to me? Where is my sister? I was recently showed some paper work that says that I was sexually abused by my mom. I donít believe this to be true but Tom Hall at Seqouyah tells me I have repressed memories. I donít believe him and I think there trying to kill me and brainwash me into thinking I was abused by my mother. I have court 10/3/2012 to decide my fate.im currently in las vegas new mexico at the state mental hospital right along side alll the sickos and serial killers of new mexico I want to go home with my mom and or sister. I have not broken any laws and I have no rights as a human being.

<quoted text> We need to get back to helping each other instead of jumping the gun and pointing fingers. How about getting to know individuals who could possibly be at risk for child abuse or endangerment, include their families or friends. Going in and judging parents and pointing out their faults is not what any one needs. And putting a child's mother in jail is not in the best interest of the child for sure. Sound like you had to prove yourself before they even looked at the whole picture. I don't have good thoughts about social workers because they do what they think needs to be done and is in their best interests....
And half of these workers do not have children so they don't really care if you don't!They do more harm to these children then the parents can what ever they are doing minus beating or sexual abuse of course.The Las Cruces office took away my Great Grand children 3 boys and a baby girl my Grand had taken the kids to a shelter because of the fathers abuse of the children and her CYFD went to the shelter and took the children because they were dirty.... Now were we live there is nothing but dirt to play in....Shortly after they removed the children from the mother from the fathers abuse the mother had Brain surgery becuse he constantly hit her in the head. Lucky for Us their Uncle had a 4 bedroom house and did everything except kiss their a--- and was given the kids....The mother came out of a 22 day coma not remembering she had kids... But with the help of the family her memory came back and she kissed their a--es and now has her children back. Fight for your rights everyone the lawyer that CYFD provided fought for her and won!!!!

Federal Courts have already decided they CANNOT open your door unless they have a warrant. Next time, do not open the door, do nto talk to them, only speak to sheriff's deputies.

talk to your state legislature and the AG's office, then channel 4.

I have been thru 8 cps investigations, all clean, and my honey 15. My honey's ex hubby and her mother got the kids to call in b, lame their and her ex's problems on us, and each investigation showed us as clean. CPS is just a way to harass people who are innocent so ex-therapists can get jobs paid for by state money, since insurance doesn't pay them as much or as often anymore.

Titus 1:6 and 1_Timothy 3:2,12 --- "One wife" --- mia is the Greek word from which the word, one, was translated in those passages. Yet, it can also be translated as first, just as it is, for example, so translated in the phrases, "first day of the week" in Matthew 28:1, Mark 16:1-2, and Acts 20:7. Furthermore, in 1_Timothy 5:9, a widow's "one man" is not mia but the Greek word "heis", meaning the numeral-one, and not meaning the adjective of "first". The fact is, no one can INSIST that these three "one wife" verses can NOT be instead translated as "first wife", which makes more sense to translate those verses as "first wife" anyway. To put it as anything else would make no sense as it does now!

When you read the verses you must also think of the time it was written and "mia" would have been the more logical word to be used. In fact until the catholic church outlawed polygamy that is exactly how it was understood. The church only banned polygamy not because of commandments of Yah, but because they wanted to be excepted by the pagans in Rome so they had to outlaw it. They also added many pagan practices as well so they would be accepted as well as get converts.

I am a Messianic pastor any ways, but I read Greek and Hebrew and have read the real text not the KJV like most folks do. I believe in the fact that a government should have no say on what adult marries what adult. I do not care what the SC says. At one point and time people said it was against the law and a sin to marry outside of your race as well. Funny how once educated people got a hold of it the laws changed. I believe in polygny although I think 50 a excessive. I would never have more than two that is just me. My kids were cared for though poly or not! They were well taken care of never wanted for anything. To take them for that reason alone is just sad no matter what YOU or ANYONE else thinks about it!

I clipped out your "privacy" notice, as since you posted freely, that does not apply.
Your web site says you believe in mulptiple female marriage partners, which explains why your kids were taken away. SCOTUS ruled against that years ago, and the Bible in the NT does teach against it. One of my ancestors was Urien of Rheged, and after he had 50 wives his descendants followed the truth of the NT and stopped that type of marriage-one man, one woman, per 1 Timothy 3:2,12.

"This is the "Dirty Tricks" section that isn't in the policy manual, but ought to be, on how to take and keep children. All Department of Children and Families (DCF) agents know them, use them, and pass them on as oral tradition. Their goal: Take as many children as possible. Their method: Dirty tricks. "

The state agencies receive $4,000-$6,000 in Social Security Title IV-E funds when they remove a child, rather than leave the child at home or with an unlicensed relative. They are encouraged to find abuse & neglect even if none exists.
Susana Martinez, Marc Perry, Arlene Lucero, Matt Esquibel, Yolanda Deines all don't care about removal of children. The governor hired an attorney to investigate CYFD. 2 months into the term in 2011, CYFD's General Counsel, Chris Romero resigned. The governor temporarily assigned the same attorney to act as general counsel for a few months. At the same time this attorney was supposed to investigate CYFD, she was representing CYFD!
CPS (CYFD or any "Pretective?" Services agency) accepts anonymous complaints, illegally violates parent's and children's civil and constitutional rights. They also assume the parent and child are lying during the illegally held interviews. They also claim that the material gathered from these interviews can be turned over to law enforcement to pursue criminal charges against the parent, but claim they do not have to read Miranda Rights to the parents.
I am concerned that CPS feels justified in trumping federal laws during investigations. Parents and children are told that if they refuse to conduct the interview that CPS can take custody to force the interview. CPS also assumes that the parents and children are lying, so they can take "emergency" custody without a court order or evidence to prove the accusations are true!
CPS and the courts do not consider the emotional trauma inflicted on the parents and children when taking children away from the parents; children's emotional well being especially! Mandatory reporters can hide behind the mandatory standing and can make falsified accusations and know they are protected from prosecution. Even if the complaints turn out to be untrue, CPS has no desire to investigate as to why the accusation was made.
CPS even uses previous unsubstantiated complaints as evidence of neglect, even if the investigators believe the complaints to have zero merit. CPS also allows an investigator to sit alone with a child even if the investigator is a middle aged male and the child is a teenage girl. This violates federal sexual harassment laws, but is allowed under state law. This also allows CPS to make claim of statements by the child even if the child never made them, or allows CPS to withhold any statements the child does make from their report.
What can be done when CPS removes a child, but tells you & the court they had no evidence?
Complaints to the state offices went unanswered except to tell the parent several appalling comments- "When CPS shows up the child & parent have no civil or constitutional rights." "We would rather destroy the emotional well being of one child to protect a few." "You should be happy we took your child because that shows how much we care about children." AfDue to current laws CPS can remove a child without evidence or probable cause. They are also allowed to provide false statements, twist the child's & parents words, & make unprovable statements about the parent.
I was told that CPS did a "thorough" investigation into my complaint, but at no time interviewed my daughter or me. All they had to go on were their own files & records. They do not answer to anyone, except themselves in complaints. Even the Office of Children's Ombudsman has never found CPS to be guilty of CPS protocol. Even perjury, threats, knowingly providing inaccurate statements & withholding life saving medications are not in violation of protocol.

Don't Trust anyone in the government when it comes to CYFD. Governor Matinez hired attorney Jennifer Padgett to investigate CYFD. After a few months the CYFD General Counsel resigned & Yolana Dienes & Gov. Martinez temporarily assigned Padgett to head up CYFD General Counsel! The very agency she is supposed to investigate, she is supervising!
CYFD ignores the Constitution, Civil Rights & any other federal laws. CYFD is allowed to use 3 ambiguous statements to violate the families rights & remove a child- "Best interest of the child," "Preponderance of the evidence," "Err on the side of the caution." CYFD kidnapped my child without talking to my child or me. They also threatened me that if I went to court to prove my innocence they would drag it for a yeear, because Judge Barbara Vigil does what we tell her. 34 days later Matt Esquibel & Linda McNall called to say they didn't have any evidence to take my child! They dismissed the complaint! Marc Perry, CYFD Constituency Officer, told us that CYFD had screwed us over. An independent investigation determined CYFD had broken several laws, Constitutional & Civil Rights. However, the state dismissed the investigation, but could not tell me why, because it was confidential. Francine Anaya admitted Gagriella James, CYFD investigator who was later fired, was unprofessional but I had to forgive her as she was still learning! While their learning, they are allowed to file falsified documents, withhold evidence that sides with the parents & threaten childre & parents. They are also protected from criminal prosecution, even if they break the law!
Arlene Lucero told me they proved their case, even though after holding my child hostage for 34 days, then admitted they had no evidence, they still proved their case?!?!
I was told that it costs more to keep a child in custody than to keep the child at home. However, they don't tell you that Title IV-E, a federal incentive to remove children & place them with strangers, pays CYFD $4,000-$6,000 to place a child in foster care, but only pay the foster home about $1200. Leaving the child at home costs nothing, but then CYFD also gets no title IV-E money. They lose $2800-$4800 a month by leaving the child in a loving, caring home rather than kidnapping them & placing them with an uncaring money hungry foster home!
