Welcome to the Fight CPS Legal Document & Information Library

January 14, 2019 – By Linda Martin

This library contains forms and information on legal procedures. I will add more links as I find them.

Remember:

(1) Do not give CPS any self-incriminatory information on affidavits, declarations, or other legal documents.

(2) All information found at FightCPS is used at your own risk. If possible, consult an attorney for help.

(3) These are just sample documents and links to information. You will need to draft your own documents using whatever details are pertinent to your case.

(4) There’s a lot more information on the message board than I’ve linked to on this page. You can start a search for more legal document information here: Alphabetical Index.

(5) If we don’t have what you need, maybe we can find it for you. The message board is the place to ask for help finding a legal document sample. You can also request feedback on your case.

I cannot work on documents for you – what is here is for research … and I’m providing samples that may help you put together your own documents.
