Have been asking quest about child for 12 years. Mother's day - father is abusive. Long story but child was threatened in order to tell mother in front of police that she did not want to go with mother. Is there something that I can do legally to get her out of father's custody immediately. No 2 orXXXXXproceeding. She is in danger. He has CPS rpt. child 14
Mother will do everything necessary however I, grandmother, will have to get all the paperwork and groundwork done. Mother lost legal custody due to 18 months in pison 1 year in rehab and she is now 3 years clean and sober with an excellent job. Next two weeks she will be in school for company she works for and not able to take time off. I, however, can go into facilitators office (she knows me well) and have paperwork done and ovenighted to daughter for her signature. Child is anarexic, has cuts down both arms, has been beaten with a leather belt (father told CPS he was sorry so they let her go home with him - from school) Father screamed at child all the way home that she almost got him arrested. I just need to know how to get her out of his house immediately. She has sent me txt saying she does not care if she goes to foster care till i can get her. just please get her out. but the system keeps failing her.
Guess I should tell you that I am joindered to the case and have every other weekend visittion.
