Always record phone conversations and in person conversations they will twist what you say and use everything against you literally
If they are coming to your home get a camera in your home if your state allows it
Hire a private attorney familiar with family law if you can free attorneys are being paid by the same people
Do you own investigation get your own evidence attorneys are busy sometimes lazy
Get a copy of your petition to see what the allegations are and work to prove each one a lie, be aware that the court takes hearsay from CPS so make a effort to disprove what you can
If mental health is a allegation get your own psychiatrist also do any programs asked by you by CPS never use their referrals if possible
Note its not up to CPS but the judge act immediately to show you are financially, mentally, etc able to care for your child sure your appearance is appropriate for court
If that were to happen, however, I'd want this book as my guide. The balance of it details what happens once the judicial process starts rolling, how to prepare, and how to react and fight for one's child. And since it's often based on arbitrary judgment calls that children are removed from their parents, having this information and knowing the rights of the different party can help write a much happier ending to one's story.
Morales closes with a summary, which I'm afraid unnecessarily loses some of his audience. He points out that African-American kids are those most affected by CPS abuse, which should make African-American parents (especially urban parents) a captive audience for his arguments. It's unfortunate that in his closing arguments he widens the scope of his accusations to essentially tar all state agencies with the same brush, calling them incompetent and parasitical and accusing them of leaching (sic) off society. A lot of his readers who don't share his conservative political leaning are likely to jump ship here - so it's my hope that most of those readers stop before the setp-by-step guide and miss the final muddle. The closing arguments are my main reason for docking a star: he should be building bridges here, not burning them. Frustration wins no fights.
As the "leaching" shows, there are a few typos and errors that managed to escape the editor. They're worst in the closing arguments - another reason to skip that chapter.
All in all a worthwhile, concise read, particularly the first half. If this review hangs around long enough and Morales rewrites the wrap-up, keep in mind that there may be a star missing.
