I am the paternal grandmother. My son has custody of the child. They live with me. Mother originally filed a change of custody motion which the next hearing on that is Aug 4. In the meanwhile she filed this emergency custody motion where she blatantly lied as I explained in the question. That hearing was Monday, then child services promptly visited and found everything to be okay in this home. The next hearing on this is Aug 1. The hair follicle drug test is supposed to be completed by Friday July 5 but as I stated, there is serious concern over taking it because how in the world would we be able to prove that she put something in his drink if it comes back positive. I very much want to file the motion to set aside the order but I know it is very risky to do it without an attorney and I am aware the clerks won't give any advice so I would have to be fully prepared, such as I don't know if I need to get a transcript of Monday's hearing. I believe the objection is the right thing to do because her motion is frivolous and slanderous.
