Thank you for your follow up.
I am very sorry that you had to go through such difficult and agonizing experience to simply be a father in your daughter's life and I do agree with you that the formidable years in a child's life are very important and you can never relive them again.
I do agree with you that you can bring up the fact that it would be in the child's best interest for the judge to make a ruling as soon as possible, but at the same time I would not push the envelope on this, as you do not want to piss this judge off, where she would rush into an unfavorable decision simply because she would not have a chance to analyze and think it through.
I would be careful about bringing up any past issues that are not directly related to your current motion, especially if your grievances would be related to the court not being fair or efficient, as such issues generally have to be appealed and it is likely that the judge would not be amused hearing about them from you. However if they are directly related to your current motion, such as the long delay to obtain a hearing before the judge, you can mention it in support of your position that a quicker decision would be beneficial to all parties involved.
As far the lawsuits against FCS, it would be very difficult to pursue, due to the state having immunity against lawsuits and not many people were able to pursue action against FCS, however if a specific FCS employee has acted illegally outside the scope of his/her employment, then such claims could be pursued, but generally it would involve some type of child abuse
by an FCS employee or some other illegal and clearly criminal act.
I wish you the best of luck!
