Come on now you know that CPS is going to give the mothers a second, third chance. As many chances as it takes!!! I know this for a fact my daughter who has missed more than 35 days each year and has since kindergarden; I have taken her mother to court over my concerns and everytime the Cabell County Family Judge (Mrs. Keller) allows her mother to continue this abuse and neglect. Way to go Mrs. Keller!!! Dont get me wrong CPS done their part in this as well. My daughter's mother is a drug addict and failed drug test ordered by this judge and still where is my daughter. With her mother! I am not point ing the finger only on the court systems but on her mother. When is it time to actually protect the kids. How about a change and NOT WAIT TILL THE KIDS ARE DEAD. So worried about the parents rights what about the kids. I know that I am far from perfect but when my daughter was with me she was safe and not being around drugs. Oh and she went to school everyday I tried to teach my daughter that it was ok to have dreams and she could be anything she wanted to be. But thanks to the courts and her mother my daughters future is going to be the next 15 year old that drops out of school to have a baby. I have no respect for the government because they have failed he kids. Talk is cheap don't make threats actually take the kids from the parents that are neglecting them. Sad when I have to pay for a lawyer to protect my kid and regardless of how much I spend or how much proof of the abuse I have my daughters mother is still able to just walk out of the court house with her. And I get treated like a criminal for caring enough to take it to court and they give me supervised visits. perfect system huh? I ven went to Chris Chiles office and spoke to him about my concerns about the abuse my daughter was going through and they told me to contact CPS. What a joke! A system of everyone trying to put the problems off on someone else and it continues until who ever is complaining runs out of energy or resourses. So the court are now going to actually do their jobs lets see. My daughter was in court over her atendance last week and her mother told the courts that the reason she was missing so much school is because of doctors appointments... i'm not an investigator but how about them call the doctors to confirm this story and I bet my left one that this is a lie.

The reason that I was given supervised visits is because my 14 year old daughter called me and told me that her mother and step father had a huge part and ended up into a getting into a fight. The police was called and arrested her mother for cursing the police and acting like a idiot. Even stated her mother's eyes was red and clearly messed up and on something; this all stated on the police report. My daughter called me and told me that she was hit by a grown man and my daughter even told the police her mother was giving her pills and vodka. The police called me to have me pick my daughter up and I kept her until I called CPS and went to the magistrates office and got a restraining order on her mother. I hired a lawyer and when we went to court (mrs. Keller) rescheduled and gave her mother visits until we went to court. My daughter even went infront of he judge and told her she was scared of her own mother and told her some of the hurtful things her mother has said to her. Still yet the judge ordered her to have visits. My daughter told me she was scared o go around her mom and I refused to send her. To me my job as her parent is to protect her at all cost. And thats what I was going to do regardless of what this so called judge said. When we finally went back to court the judge was furious with me for not sending my daughter to her mothers house. When I told her why I didnt send her she told me that I dont deserve right to her like I was some criminal. I refuse to be treated like this by any cracker jack judge. My daughters mother has been in court multiple times for abusing my daughter and not caring about her education when I had called it to their attention CPS stated that we feel that we should give a mother as many chances as it takes to get better and off drugs. WOW what she should have said is that they will sit back and watch my daughter end up becoming the next 15 year old on welfare with no education. Come on tax payers lets all pay for another child by a child.

Have you not filed an appeal? It gets moved to Circuit court then. Has anyone addressed the fact that its a federal law that children age 14 and above can decide who they want to live with and visit? Why is that being trumped? I am shocked Judge Keller didn't take your side, she is usually always in favor of the man. Anderson, he is usually for the women. But he really isn't any better. His bark is worse than his bite. No ass to back up what he threatens.

One of the reoccuring themes of CPS is that they remove children from parents when they shouldn't, and they leave children with parents when they shouldn't. I have my own grievance against them, so trust me, I understand. It is just odd that they continue to be like that.

I tried to file an appeal but Mrs Kelly (judge), Cps told me they would not approve it and my lawyer even said that regardless of what I do the courts are always going to continue to give the mothers another chance. I was screwed hard on this one... mostly my daughter was because she still has to be there around her mother. Her mother always gets out of things. She has been caught with drugs, stealing, welfare fraud, child neglect and verytime she gets off with less than a slap on the wrist. I admit my daughters mother can lie her way into heaven. Yeah she is that good! It's either that or she is pulling tricks at the court house or to the Huntington police dept. well it cant be that one because they would bring more charges on her for passing some stds. She must be sharing her drugs with the judge and police officers.
Whenever I told them my daughter wanted o live with me her mother went to court and said that she is not smart enough to make that decision and the judge refused to hear what my daughter had to say. CPS only takes the kids from the parents when they aren't that bad. I know that I have lots of evidence against her mother and still yet they continue to give her mother another chance. I am blown away by it. I cant imagine that there are other parents going through what I have. God help them.

I would contact another atty and I would find one that has some sort of rapport with the courts. Keller and CPS do not have the right to approve anything. The appeal is not up to them. With all that information, I find it odd that your atty would not have jumped on that. They should be able to tell you caselaw that specifies the reason why the judgment is not in your favor. Caselaw is a supreme court judgment that establishes the basis for court decisions. If something has been decided by a supreme court judge, the same applies to your situation. I would specifically ask why your daughter is of age to decide who she wants to reside with but cannot.

don't know how she isnt in jail then bc 35 missed days of school is a lot .. when they take you to court over 5 un excused days .. and you have to show dr excuses .. something very wrong somewhere .

I love how people sit here and bash CPS when in reality they are holding back a lot of more information. Just because you say you have all this information for CPS doesn't mean anything. It's all hearsay unless there is real proof. And real proof doesn't mean your word and tour family's word. Real proof means the CPS people see it for themselves or the kid tells them everything.

CPs is a joke my niece told that her daddy raped her and she was 5 she didn't know how to make stuff up. Truth is CPs is a joke my wife and I called many times and said they were living in filth and low and behold cps called my sister in law to set up a time to visit to check in on them. Sorry dude we didn't with hold anything and nothing was done by CPs until we threatened legal action for them not doing there job. CPS is a waste unless you are a bad patent then they don't touch you but a good parent that loves kids then it's all over for you

In truth, the CPS do have their hands tied. They do have to see abuse for themselves. What is the chance of that happening? next to zero?
Once, while I was working, I saw a child who was badly burned. To make a long story short, it was so obvious that someone had burned this child. After all my calls and talking to CPS, I was told the child would go home. There was not a thing I could so about it.
How sad, because the next time I saw this child, he was dead.
Until you see things like this first hand, there is no way a person can understand how bad it can get.

CPS makes surprise visits but after so long they HAVE to arrange a meeting if the family is never there when they pop up unannounced. You expect them to sit outside someone's house for hours waiting for them to come home?

Well MU01 it's not hearsay or holding nothing back when I go to court showing my daughter attendance records, medical records, police reports of when her mother is busted for all these crimes... oh and how about when my own daughter goes in the court room and tells the judge about the abuse. How about you talking about something you may actually know about. I am not on here trying to bash CPS by any means; hell they do a good enough job at making people think badly about them. Lets see you hear everyday about kids getting hurt if not killed everyday or getting pulled out of houses that are busted for meth. Come on now... I have never done it or made it but I have heard that it stinks bad and the kids are only removed from the house once their parents get caught selling it. There is no way anyone can walk past a house and not smell it. Oh and whenever there is a call for a child living in filth they call the parents and make an appointment to come in giving them plenty of time to clean or put food in the house. I know this for a fact and there are reports from CPS showing that they have went into my daughters house and her mother is passed out and the house was a mess. This may sound wrong of me but I cant count how many times I wished her mother would just overdose so my daughter wouldnt have to get hurt anymore by her mothers hands. CPS steps up only when it's too late. Its time the government either makes them protect our children or close that program (CPS). These are funds from the tax payers that could go to something more important. Like condoms for the minors. It rips my heart out everytime I see a child end up dead by a parent and then we always hear people say... I should have done something. What can we do when the government doesnt back us up and they fight to protect the rights of the abusers. What about our childrens rights? The rights for a real chance in life, the rights to have a dream and a future. I am so tired of people defending the crooked police officers, cps workers and family judges (that don't care). As a parent it is my JOB to protect them just like as police officers, judges, even CPS workers it is their job to protect people. I really hope that no one ever has to sit back and watch a child in their family get abused and watch how OUR government sits back and watches it happen. Just pray for the kids.

Cps in cabell county has failed my niece more than once now! I'm not shocked! Her mother is a skank that keeps having babies and using the welfare system and could 'nt care less about her kids. She wants everyone to think she does but trust me she doesn't! My niece will be nine in August and she flat told the cps the counselors and the judge she didn't want to live with her mom anymore and she wasn't treated right or took care of plus there is neglect and abuse! Everything that child confided in them went straight to her worthless mother and they gave her right back to her. It's bs and it's a joke! I'm writing the mayor, the governor, the newspapers, and the senator with complaints and I'm also going to figure out who is on the board of supervisors in the county and the grand jury of the county! You can't get help from the law or cps it's a waste of time! Go to the state straight to the top and drive them crazy. Send letter after letter and email after email! That's my plan! The state needs to know how their cps office is behaving and how our children are getting shafted! Our voices have to count for something and the kids can't speak up for themselves! I was told not to bother with federal officials but to go to the state! Hope everyone gets some justice and these kids get the fairness and safety they deserve!
