CPS is a disability for every parent and child
The Americans with Disabilities Act defines a disability as a “physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.”
CPS is exactly that.
And even if the “transitory and minor” variables must be in play, CPS interactions are NEVER minor. They are always major.
CPS contact immediately, and without delay, substantially limits the major life activities of caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, seeing, hearing, eating, sleeping, speaking, breathing, learning, concentrating, thinking, communicating, interacting with others, and working, among others.
If you’re wondering why I included learning in there, it’s because you can never learn what is really going on with CPS.
CPS immediately, most often without court authority, suspends the fundamental right of parents to make decisions concerning the care, custody, and control of their children. This is a due process right.
And the court system, in aiding this, is also a disability, that perpetuates the disability created by CPS, and also uses the prohibited “unlawful” acts under 42 USC 12203(b), of coercion, intimidation, threats, and interference with ADA rights to have equal access to the state and local government systems.
They shut you out, they spend unlimited amounts of money without giving you equal access to the same amounts of money to defend against their discrimination against you as a parent.
The ADA can sort this out, I believe, but there must be awareness of rights, invocation of rights, and using those rights to go into federal court and sue the hell out of the state/county for violating those rights.
Can you help me get the word out? Please share this substack post.
Check these videos out of my interactions with judges, most often in custody cases, and see how they react to my invocation and use of the ADA.

Georgia senator Nancy Schaefer wrote "The Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services" and fought for reform. She met her end in what was inexplicably ruled a "murder suicide" based on zero evidence.
Having been in the system, I have seen its rot. You have young optimists meddling where they don't belong, and old burnouts who are only interested in covering their asses. You have people housing more bodies than they can possibly care for in any competent manner, thus they function as warehouses and holding pens. These "foster parents" typically own multiple properties. One unmarried man I was in the custody of owned an apartment complex and 5 houses. The apartment we stayed in during the day was empty, save the ketchup stained walls. He had a security door dividing this from his apartment, which had deep shag white carpeting and a grand piano. I was there for a week before I realized the basement was full of mentally handicapped adults.
