Kat, He refused to put my name on anything. It was like I didn't exist once I married him. He wanted the traditional stay at home wife and mother. Well, he got it. Now he wants nothing to do with me. I don't know where to turn. I feel like I've fallen off the face of the earth. I thought he was such...

How is anything rightfully mine? I mean, I know I have personal property in the house, but an officer I spoke with last week said that I would have a chance to get those things at a later date. Other than that, what do you mean? How do I file for divorce with no money? How will I even get to see the...

I was told in an earlier post that I could vent here, if I'm doing something wrong please tell me. (I'm used to i by now, believe me.) I have to travel for 4 hours tomorrow to be told that I can't go home. Turn around and come back to a place which, I've found, isn't exactly safe. Wonderful. I had a...

I've come to realize that no matter what their policies state, they can do pretty much whatever they want to. So what may be true for someone else, may not be true for you. An example of them doing what they want for whatever reasons they want (or for no reason at all)? THe allegations against my hu...

Tim, I'm sorry I didn't see your first post here. I appreciate the words of hope, but I'm completely out of any of that. See, the thing is, as good a mom as I've been, I'm not a great person. My husband has very good judgement when it comes to people. He has tossed me aside and I probably deserve it...

I still have visitation for right now. When I was talking to a worker today about it, though, they said we would work something out for the "remaining visits". I hate the way that sounded.

There's a deadline. We've been reminded of it many times. The relative is willing to adopt the children, of course that now means that I would never see them. They've been doing contingent planning. I don't think we ever got an actual copy of the case plan from our worker. We've gotten the court ord...

Public transit is the way to go for now. At least until the money runs out. My biggest fear is about my children who are in care. He and his family have money, started bad-mouthing me long ago and his family member has the children. We're almost to the 10 month mark and with all of this, I can't see...

You know, that's just about the nicest thing anyone has said to me since my husband left. There's plenty of food here and I've been told to eat whatever I want.

I'm staying with family for the moment, but it doesn't look long term. I have no money, no job, no support from anyone who has or is concerned with my children. My husband has told me that if we split up, he will make sure I don't get the kids. Well, he's made sure all right. Now, I'm probably not e...

Parents with disabilities

If a parent has a disability (requiring occasional in-home treatments, regularly worn specialty clothing/apparatus) can CPS legally hold it against the parent? The disability does not in any way affect the person's parenting skills, or lessen the way they interact with the children. I know there are...

We are eight months into our case and they just postponed our next hearing until the case will 10 months gone. We have been nothing but complient and they have b...

I didn't know where to put this, but this seemed like an ok place. I'm sorry if it's wrong. Most everything I do these days is wrong. Our children have been gone for months. It's to the point where I'm starting to completely give up on them ever coming home. Every time we turn around there's somethi...

What is a CASA worker? What is their role? I guess it would be silly to ask who's side they tend to be one since the only people that seem to be on the side of my family are myself, my husband and our children!

Has anyone had to deal with a child's birthday while they are in care? How did you do it? We are still on once a week visits and the birthday is going to happen on weekend so there won't be the possibility of seeing the child on the actual day. Birthdays around here last all day.

Children in relative's care

Our children are in the care of a relative. Will this relative have any rights to the children when/if we get them back? I mean once the case is closed, will she be able to go after us for custody or visitation or anything?

Thanks.

I'm about at the end of my rope. My children have been sick since they have been in care. They were very rarely ill here. My son was only a few months old when they were removed, he has had just about all of his firsts in care. Away from us. We probably won't be able to even see him on his birthday ...

We have wonderful insurance.

I was told by the lawyer that if the c...
