Can I refuse to be questioned by Adult protective services?

I don't have much room so here it goes. I have considerable reason to believe adult protective services is accusing me of a crime. Specifically threatening to kill my mom. I've never been asked if its true and even had the cops called on me. I think I have a legal problem and have a right to avoid them even though they have a job to do. I think I'm obviously the target and would be a moron to submit to an interview without legal counsel present. Only one problem. I don't have a lawyer. I have checked some things out however I'm not sure. On one hand I can refuse to talk to them. On the other they can get a court order. If I think I'm in real legal trouble, can I refuse to be questioned or submit to an interview? Question must be answered before November 28. Best answer determined by legal input and links.

Avoiding adult protective services will get you in more trouble. Speak to a lawyer.

The encounter I had with CPS was an eye-opener. First, you wouldn't need a lawyer if they have no input to this accusation and your mom clears you. But is there is any gossip from the neighbors, or your mom can't speak for herself they will go after you like mad. They must retain cases to have a job so will lie and... More

Adult protective services can take you into custody if they believe you are a threat to others or to yourself. It's just like Child Protective Services, only it's to protect adults who are not capable of protecting themselves. I don't know what links you want, so I'm not listing any. The points don't matter to me... More
