Customer Question

I am the Grandfather of a 16 and `15 year old girls in Memphis, TN. They have called me asking for help. I have first hand knowledge of these children being abused by their stepmom and my son supports her in the abuse. The Mother have cried wolf on numerous occasions the and system don't put in faith when they cry out for help. They are constantly being threaten with being placed in foster care or juvenile court charges. They are at point that they would prefer to be placed in foster care than live under those abusive condition. What rights do I have as a grandparent or what legal steps to take help remove these children out of this situation

Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

My suggestion is that you contact the Tennessee Department of Children Services:

Call the Child Abuse Hotline to report child abuse or neglect in the State of Tennessee. (###) ###-####/p>

Reports also can be made online: https://apps.tn.gov/carat/

Once you report the abuse, there will be an investigation, and the children may very well be taken from the home.

Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
