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.
