Blac Chyna is rebutting suggestions she’s under investigation by child welfare officials. The department of child protective services is the county and state agency that investigates juvenile dependency matters in the County of Los Angeles. Using drugs does not automatically place a person under suspicion by the Department, however, what is the issue the Department will take note on is the placement of the children in harms way.  Usually they will investigate if there is a substantial risk of danger to the children of the parents in question.

A lawyer for the beauty entrepreneur denied the existence of an open investigation Tuesday and said she had no knowledge of any filings by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services related to Chyna’s baby with Rob Kardashian.  An investigation by “CPS” or child protective services does not mean their is a filing by the Department of Social Services.  Often the Social Services or Social Workers do an investigation first to see if their is any validity to the claims held against Chyna before the Department suggest a filing in the Juvenile Dependency Court.  Since the filing of a Juvenile dependency action is pseudo criminal in nature it is the County Counsel that will file any charges against Blac Chyna.
