Q: My son is going to be 12 in July. They took him from me 8 years ago after the sexual abuse was documented.

How can the system allow this to continue and not give me ANY type of communication?

This is so not the 'justice' we both deserved and he has been gone for 8 years . Everytime I refile a request for order its either a proof of service or I am just not allowed to speak?!?!

There are a lot of firms, like ours, that is pursuing childhood molestation cases. I'm not quite sure why you can't find an attorney to help you. Don't give up because time is running out for a lot of these type of claims.
