My sons school called cps because they recommended that I take him for a neurological exam and I said no.

Q:  My son Is having trouble in school and I was asked to take him for the exam which I said no to. I am with my son 24/7 and see he is lazy and has no desire to do school work. They keep calling and asking about the test so I stopped answering there calls. Yesterday I was contacted by cps. I don't feel they have the right to force me into something like that and I don't feel it was something to contact cps about. What are my options?

A:  David's Answer:  Failing to address a child's medical or developmental needs may be a form of child neglect. The question then becomes what your reasons are for refusing the test. Schedule a consult with a Family Law attorney in your area.  -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (
