OUR 6TH AMENDMENT RIGHT
The 6th Amendment, the right to a fair trial, applies not only to procedures for the determination of criminal charges against individuals but also to procedures to determine their rights and obligations in a suit at law. This means that the right to a fair trial should be observed throughout every phase of the criminal justice process from the moment when the investigation is launched to the actual trial to any appeal.
CPS is denying parents and their children of their 6th Amendment rights of the right to a fair trial. CPS is required by law to follow the legal policies and procedures that do not infringe on the rights of others and that gives parents a legal recourse of action in order to defend themselves in a court of law. The parents legal recourse of action to defend themselves in a court of law information is known by CPS, the CPS Attorney's, the Public Defender's of the parents, and multiple departments of the judicial system.
It's part of the policies and procedures to include a blank response form for the other party to respond to any petition filed with the courts in order for them to be able to defend themselves against false accusations and tell their side of the story. This is the policy for restraining orders, divorce papers, guardianship petitions, criminal charges, etc... A petition that CPS files with the courts is not exempt from having to follow the proper policies and procedures and the law!
By not including the proper forms with the petition served to the parents so the parents can file a response to the petition with the courts, CPS is denying parents and their children of their constitutional rights and their 6th Amendment rights, due process, children of having the right to familial relations, and parents the information of their options of legal recourse of action to defend themselves in a court of law in response to the allegations made against them within a petition that was filed with the courts.
Why is CPS being allowed to get away with this throughout the states here in the US? What can a parent file on their own behalf when obviously no one in the judicial system in family CPS courtrooms are willing to follow the law properly?
