Is it possible for social services to decide and to take away your kids without a court order?

The termination of parental rights can only be done by the judge in the court of jurisdiction. Social Services (DFS, CPS etc.) can remove children from a home and place them into protective custody until the case has been throughly investigated and is ruled upon by the court.

Department of Social Services is the agency that handles this and the people who do the job are Social Workers. It is a tough job since they often see children who have been abused and had other things happen to them.

Depends on where you are and what type of social services you need. Most social or welfare services can be found in the blue pages of your local phone book under social services.

Legally, no. A minor does not decide whether or not a parent is becoming an alcoholic or if the home environment is unsuitable. That is decided by the state's department of social services (DCFS, CPS, etc.).

Good question. The likelihood is that Social Services will get involved and decide which set of parents is most suitable for them. If both sets are suitable then it may go to court for a decision.

yes, in fact that is almost always the case. The state or in your case social services, can do whatever they see fit and healthy for the children no matter the parents say. Their primary goal is the safety of the children.
