Main Reasons Child Protective Services Can Be Called

Michigan Children’s Protective Services – Reasons Why They Can Investigate You

The main objective of a Child Protective Services program or department is to protect the rights and welfare of a child. Their main goal is to keep kids with their families, in their homes – when it is deemed a safe environment.

Here in Michigan, the (CPS) program is responsible for investigating allegations of child abuse and neglect. The Michigan Department of Health & Human Services defines Child Abuse and Child Neglect as follows:

Child Abuse:

Harm or threatened harm to a child’s health or welfare that occurs through non-accidental physical or mental injury, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, or maltreatment.

Child Neglect:

Harm or threatened harm to a child’s health or welfare by a parent, legal guardian, or any other person responsible for the child’s health or welfare.

Reasons Why Michigan Children’s Protective Services Might Investigate You

There are several signs that are commonly seen in child abuse and child neglect cases. If your child is showing any of the following signs, someone will likely report you to the CPS thus resulting to the investigation process:

Unexplained bruises and welts, burns, fractures, laceration or abrasion.
Apprehensiveness when other children cry.
Behavioral Extremes.
Fear of going home, fear of parents or caregivers.

If a mandatory reporter in your area sees any of the above signs in your child, you could get reported to the CPS. This is why as a parent or a legal guardian, you must stay up to date with your children’s medical records, especially if an injury occurs. If the mandatory reporter feels that you are not providing the right amount of care, or that you are purposely abusing your child in any manner, the Michigan CPS could show up at your doorstep.
