What are you attempting to accomplish with your clause?

Are you saying "no CPS workers may apply"? Does Wisconsin allow you to discriminate against source-of-income?

Are you saying "no one with an active CPS case may apply"? CPS can get called at any moment, for any reason, valid or otherwise. Mom leaves kids unattended inside while she hangs laundry in the back yard. Mom lets kids play unattended in the front yard. Mom runs a 10-minute errand during the baby's nap. The baby's sick and is taking a nap, so she lets him sleep in the carseat on a winter day with the windows cracked while she drops off a packet of papers. Just because CPS hasn't been called doesn't mean it won't.

Half the point of CPS is to investigate a situation and see if there's a problem. For example, A and B may be getting a divorce, and fighting over custody of the kids (and the child support that comes along with them). Suppose A tells the kids to tell their school counselor that B has done something Highly Inappropriate. The kid does that, because Parent A told him to. Counselor calls CPS. CPS gets to investigate and see if B is innocent, and A is just stirring up trouble, or if there's something unhealthy going on. Why would you want to get involved to the point of making value judgements against either A (who doesn't have a CPS case) or B (who does have a CPS case, but didn't do anything)?

There are better (cleaner!) ways to cut out drama. :) --96.46.xxx.xx
