A: David’s Answer: You should have received a determination letter from them confirming they “indicated” the report. If you didn’t, insist on same – in writing if need be. Next, unless a Family Court Judge orders it, your compliance with their recommended services & monitoring is voluntary. Thus, the mother has every right to tell them to buzz off. That said, before she does so, it’s recommended she schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Abuse defense attorney for a full assessment.
