My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: California
Is it true legally that the CW needs to interview every child in the home in order to close an investigation of child abuse? I have cooperated with everything - recorded interview with case worker, medical records request, school records request, etc. - except the interview of the kids because the CW said they had to be interviewed alone with no other witnesses and can't be recorded. I don't want the kids words twisted with no witnesses.
Even though CPS can go to the school and interview them, are they just going to keep the investigation open forever? How can I get it closed?
