state of MI, county Oakland
so almost a month ago I recieved a visit from the police and CPS.
They were here on allegations of child abuse and a complain I am running a drug house and involving my 5 year old in the illegal production and distribution of narcotics.
I belive my Ex wife made this call, though I can't prove it. We are in a custody battle, I have custody of the kids and she wants them back. the day before CPS came, I recieved a summons for a modification of custody. This is the second time in 6 months that she has called the police on me.
So I let them in my house, I have a medical marijuana grow, which was cleared by the police for a 2nd time. They told CPS that I am in FULL compliance with the mmj laws.
Then next day, without me knowing, CPS social worker interviewed my child at school, as well as observed me interacting with her while I dropped her off at school, again without me knowing. She then came to my house and did yet another walk through.
She found no problems, she told me she found no evidence of abuse or neglect as well.
She called me later that night and requested I submit to a drug screen by the next day, she said as long as there was nothing other than marijuana in my system, the case would be dismissed as unfounded. I submitted the drug test, passed for everything including marijuana(I actually rarely smoke marijauana)
3 weeks go by, I hear nothing. Then today I recieve a phone call from the case worker. She requested the names of my children's doctors. I gave her the name and #, and asked her why. I told her that she had told me there was no evidence of abuse, I passed my drug test, so what is going on. She said "thank you mr.######, I will call you with my reccomendations" and hung up the phone.
WTF is going on? I would think that since 3 weeks have gone by that if they thought there was a problem they would have taken action sooner? According to MI law, they have 30 days to conduct and investigation. Is this just a formality before they close the case? I am seriously sick of these people. I have cooperated with them fully, provided all information they requested, taken a drug test, been cleared by the police. What do they want from me? My home was clean and well stocked with food on the home visit, my children are clean and well dressed. I don't abuse them. I don't involve or expose them to marijuana or any other drugs.
I feel like I am being harrassed and bullied. I have done nothing wrong. I told the case worker my ex is living with a man that attacked a women with a knife, that uses heroin, and her daugter is being watched by this man while my ex works. She didn't seem to care about that.
