Re: Probable Cause

I am not an attorney; but I think the same judge would have to be shown evidence or cause to review the hearing. I wasn't present for one, so it was re-done as a matter of procedure, but that was just for show because the train was already speeding down the track. Also, I got a one day continuance a...

Re: Firefighter who helped save lives needs help now!

I have wondered how my cases will haunt me. I find out tomorrow, if it will bar me from a job. It requires a deep background check. There was no place on the 43 page application to disclose it. Given that they wanted me to list every parking ticket and traffic violation, I am worried. I know there i...

Re: Direction Needed ASAP... Please

Yes, they are very secretive about Juvenile cases. You have to physically go to the clerk office and show ID, but I assure you, there is almost no way they can withhold the file from you. Only once was it kept from me, because I wasn't yet a party to the case, having made a special appearance and ch...

Re: Direction Needed ASAP... Please

You can go to the court anytime they're open and inquire about the case. The clerk can show the file, docket, and calendar.
You are not helpless. You are a party to the case and you get due process.

Re: kidnapped and held hostage!!

Re: Need immediate help in buffalo ny

It is almost always hard to get a child back. There is no easy path. You are dealing with government and generally bad people.
Because you are taking action, you have some leverage. You might be able to get your attorney to negotiate a simple plan or go right to a family maintenance plan.

Re: can we sue the hospital and Cps?

Chances are, they are already afraid of a civil suit. You need a civil tort lawyer and they probably want you to keep quiet about suing until you see where things go. But, yes, when there is a violation of law or rights, there is often a viable suit. CPS won't have to pay, because they are personall...

Re: What happens if a foster parent violated a court order?

Unless there is evidence of intent to defy the court, I suspect nothing will happen. While it does seem like a contempt, my experience suggests that foster parents are virtually immune. Without going into stories, I'll just say the foster parents of my children were less qualified and provided worse...

Re: Can CPS tell my ex to violate visitation order

IF CPS is involved, you are a party to the case and would have been served. CPS is not the law although they act like it. The current court order is the law unless the kids are in protective custody. Again, you should have been handed documents and been in court by now if that was the case. Ask your...

When my ex got guardianship of a nephew, I had one short interview with a social worker. The boy was taken because the mother tested positive for pot. Frankly, she also did plenty of meth, weed, and alcohol during the pregnancy. That child had significant issues. Anyway, I don't recall a background ...

Re: Do step parents who adopt have priority over other relatives

While your importance and attachment between you and child is clear, it isn't a slam dunk. The process is strict and methodical. I've been on both sides. I fought TPR and fought presumed parentage when the bio-father was begging for his rights. You didn't address a vital question: Is there a father'...

Re: Loving Grandparent attacked for trying to get CPS to understand Truth

I am not an attorney, this is not legal advice. My opinion : Go silent, disappear, and work on a secret plan to help if he gets them back. He should be ready to move to another county or state the day his case is closed. Consider the following: 1. The judge decides, not CPS. Procedure is just as imp...

Re: Do step parents who adopt have priority over other relatives

Great. I was given legal advice in CA, that the other parent's rights had to be terminated first. And, that was almost impossible without marriage or CPS. We know CPS can do it but marriage gives the new partner the right to seek termination for the purpose of adoption. I was also told that it is a ...

I think I follow, and that kinda describes me both during my case and after. There is a list of factors and a hierarchy of importance.
