Q: Our daughter was taken into Emergency custody on Dec 21 2020. We had an Adjudication hearing on May 4 2021.
We did have a court appointed attorney who wouldn't work with us. My husband works from 6am to after 4 Monday through Saturday. We tried to email her information and asked for conference calls and she refused. When we arrived at court the day of the the Adjudication hearing the attorney asked to be removed and the judge allowed it. then told the court reporter who had been going back and forth between two different courtrooms , my husband fired her. untrue. them the hearing was continued without my husband had an attorney. the judge told my husband if he said anything he had better walk on eggshells because he was a state judge and would hold him in contempt. i had been supeanaed by the asst d.a. and was made to sent in the hallway then never evem called me in the courtroom. they wouldn't accept our evidence and wouldn't let my husband say anything
A: If the case was continued then you have time to hire an attorney to help you with the case. Meet with an attorney so they can review your case and once the attorney has a handle on what has happened they will be able to explain your options.
