In a short answer, No and yes. You can no longer get the child back as your children because your rights have been terminated. If the child wants, and if the child's legal parents (your parents it appears) choose to let the child stay with you, that is their right as the parents, however, in...Read more »
My brother takes care of his kids full time. They were born out of wedlock and the mother has a history of mental illness. She has been like this for the past 2 years. She often states that God tells her to do things, says horrible things and has been in and out of hospitals. She just wrote him a... Read more »
First, don't agree to any support order without first conducting genetic testing to make sure the child is yours. If this has already happened there may or may not be something that can be done now. It is very fact dependant so schedule a consultation with an attorney asap to learn your options.
First, your husband needs an attorney. The charge is a serious one. Once the case has been submitted to the DA by the police, the decision on whether to proceed and how to do so rests with the prosecutor. You may no longer wish for the prosecutor to proceed (whether through a declination of charges...Read more »

CPS went to a young mom's house, saw she had a physical disability and claimed it would hinder her ability to pick up her newborn child and that she couldn't be alone with the child and told her to take the child to the sisters house (mom is in a wheelchair). That was a year ago and the... Read more »
Sounds like there are probably more details to this case than what has been included here. I think she should be prepared to explain why she didnt take legal action the very same day the child was removed instead of waiting a year.
Before she does anything she needs to have an attorney...Read more »
If there is a court order for visitation then the child visits when the order says the child visits. If she wants a job it would need to be a job that does not schedule her during visitations. In the alternative, if the parents are both mature enough to coparent, they can talk and try to work...Read more »

If it is a first offense, it should only be a misdemeanor. That means the worst he can get is 1 year jail time. If she is not going to testify against him then most likely it will be dismissed unless he gave a statement incriminating himself or someone else witnessed the altercation and they are...Read more »
