Asked in Child Custody and Family Law for Nebraska

Q: How does a court hearing go for a child that was removed from my home due to something I said to CPS in an email?

I've asked the state to step in and help me multiple times last year to try and get my mentally ill child in a facility cause I'm frustrated with trying to deal with her psychological behaviors so last week was the last straw and I emailed the hotline and told them if they don't help me she would end up on the streets but I didn't have any intentions on actually doing that cause I know that is child abuse so now they are saying my email is what started this process.
