This ruling is an awesome show of the law and how it works. CPS is rarely overturned. In particular, to have the Third District Court of Appeals rule so specifically on the terms of what they can constitute “imminent danger” requiring the removal of a child, and also implementing the requirement to make every reasonable attempt to return the child to the home.
This is case law that I’m sure will be used throughout many cases in the future of CPS court. This is a huge advancement for all families who have been wrongly separated by CPS who have not followed the law like they are now being forced to. These children will surely find their way into history and law books to come and hopefully save the children of our future from suffering much the same fate.
There is child abuse in homes and there is child abuse in foster homes. Unless all parents everywhere stand up and protest against the state’s actions, they will come for your children next.
