If you baby is in foster care, you are supposed to get a court hearing almost immediately. In most states you each will automatically be a...

Good for you, for not opening the door!

So many people are intimidated into being compliant until they finally get fed up. Since case workers never answer phone calls, etc., why should parents be so accomodating to hang themselves?

Re: Harrassment

. If it ever went to court later, then they would say that you voluntarily let them in - - they would deny that they forced you or threatened you. Ask the worker if they are forcing you with threat of child removal and law enforcement, or would it be voluntary on your part. If they say it would be v...

The money goes to child welfare, etc. You can do a Freedom of Information request for your locality. Actually...

You can object to the original court adjudication of Neglect or "Child in Need of Services" at any time during the process.

How did the caretaker get to be Representative Payee of Social Security?

Download the form from SS site, fill it out, make an appointment and take it to the SS office for the personal interview. This is called Social Security fraud.

If it is denied, file an appeal within the time limit to the higher court. This may be around $70. Thes...
