What are my friends options/chances to get her children

Customer Question

There were accusations made towards her of leaving the children alone, drug use, and permiscuous behavior. Officer told her to voluntarily give children up to Child protective services because it would be easier on her. She did so, and now she is going back to court for fight for custody of them and CPS has closed the case with no negative feedback.

If she has a positive report from CPS and proof she had no drug use, then the chances are fairly good that she will get her children back. She should get a lawyer to assist her because fighting to get custody back from CPS is not easy. If she cannot afford a lawyer, she can call the state bar and ask about the pro bono referral program to get a lawyer for free.
