Is CPS in NY state required to notify the legal father if his wife is being investigated for abusing the kidskids?

Q:  CPS is investigating (false) allegations that my wife neglects,and abuses the kids. I am not accused but am named as the other parent in the report. It has been over a week since the worker came to our home and i the father of the kids have not been notified, or interviewed. Not a letter or a phone call. Is this the usual procedure?

A:  David's Answer:  Yes, CPS should have sent you a letter notifying you of the existence of the report. Moreover, proper procedure would have been to interview you as well. You may follow-up with the caseworker and/or his/her supervisor. Speak with a Family Law attorney in your area for more info.   -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (
