Q: My mother in law lied to take temp. custody of my daughter. What can I do?
I am a mom of 6 kids. I am married. My mother in law took my 9 month old daughter Friday saying I am unfit and making a lot of false accusations. I have proof of a lot of the false accusations. And a lot of proof against her on why she did this. Also in the papers i was served she stated that no other agencies had been notified about my daughter being neglected. But she called the law to my home 5 days prior and they told her she could not have her and she called Dfacs to my home 4 days prior and they told her she could not have her. Dfacs even put in my safety plan that she was not to have contact with me or any of my children and noted in the paper work that at this point my mother in law was just harassing me trying to take my daughter. Dfacs said me and my home was good for all 6 of my children. I am wondering what I can do since she lied to her lawyer and the judge about other agencies she knew dfacs was involved bc she called them. She had also tried to get the law involved. The
