Can And Will CPS Test The Father If She Tested Positive After Giving Birth ?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: April 28, 2020

Q: Baby was born and now a cps case is opened because mom tested positive just wondering if they’ll test both mom and dad?

A: If the “case” is merely an investigation, the answer is that they can request such a test. It’s then up to the father whether he agrees to the test – usually there must be some suspicion that the father also does drugs as well. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Abuse defense attorney for a full assessment.
