My nephew has been trying to get full custody of his 2 year old daughter since birth.
Child born addicted to cocaine and opiates
Father was given permission by the court and child protective services to move from Florida, where the child was born, to GeorgiaMother
has been arrested 6 times for drug possession since the birth of the child; the case plan set-up was never even started; mother has been on drugs since the age of 14 and has been in 3 rehab facilities.
Child protective services closed the case due to the fact that the father moved to Georgia and is living with his aunt.
Mother comes from a wealthy family and got a high profile attorney and the judge gave 50/50 shared custody.
Mother is still on drugs and father filed a motion for the mother to have a hair folical drug test and was denied by the judge.
Pictures had been sent to child protective services show her passed out at the airport. Judge said that father had wasted the courts time with his motion and that he was to pay the mother's legal expenses.
Two months later, the mother was taken to ER for drug overdose and infection in her arm.
New case plan has been set-up; the father has child; the mother was just given a random drug test and tested positive for drugs.
Georgia Child Protective Services have become involved.QUESTION:
1. A home evaluation by Georgia Child Protective Services of the home is to be done; however, I have asked for a copy of the policy and procedures and have not been given any nor can I find it on the website. Can they just come into my home without me being given any written procedure to review or sign or agree to? What can or can they not do?2. The child has been in my home since she was 10 months; why do I have to show them proof of my mortgage payments; income tax return and me and my 94 year old father be drug tested and finger printed? They are to go through our closets and take pictures of the home we were told also. What are the limits that I can allow them to have?3. The case plan was to have been completed in September by the mother. She was to have completed rehab; gone to counseling and therapy; get a job and be drug free and pay child support
. Now that she has been tested positive for drugs, can the judge now just give full custody to the father and change the venu from Florida to Georgia?4. Can the judge give the mother an extinson and allow her to keep on failing. He has already stated a year ago that he knows that she has failed 2 rehab programs and yet he still gives her everything she requests.5. What can the father petition the court for. It was also noted that the mother has been in ER two times for drug overdose while she had shared custody of the child. At what point does the mother dose her rights?
