i learned a long time ago that you protect your own. you can not fix the world and the only one you have control over is the one you live in.
hang in there. you were right, protect your children no matter what.

you are right about me assuming you were female. i will no longer make that assumption. the main reason i think all those things matter is EMPATHY. a social should be able to empathize with the parents and children. when someone joins this site, they are in most cases at their wits end. the feel the...

there is no way of telling. the best person to ask about the couple or single thing is a lawyer representing both you and your wife. talk to them and run scenarios by them. you have to find someone though who knows how to play with them and you have to play with them too. if you in fact are innocent...

In Georgia where i am from, juvenille court orders work like this. if your wife get...

there are alot of factors to weigh in about this. some have to do with the location where you are at, the reputation of the county, if any children have died recently because of abuse. also it is based on your criminal history. do you have a history of domestic or assualt charges? your age will also...

you can revoke your signature from these forms by filling out a form, i have seen it on this sight, but i am not sure where it is. from now on when you sign a form like this, you just simply put under duress at the end of your name, if the caseworker doesnt like that you simply state that what she i...
