Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Are you asking if you can demand the children go to a particular guardian/foster parent?
Hello and thank you for contacting us. Different expert here, this is Dwayne B. and I'm looking forward to assisting you today.
What is your specific question?
It's very hard or us to answer a question like "what are my rights" and provide you with helpful information. I need you to be more specific in your question(s) if you could. When we answer general ones like "what do I do", "what are my rights", or "what are my options", we have to give general answers and, invariably, the customer responds with "I already knew that". This type of forum works better if you ask specific questions so we know exactly what you are looking for.
No, you aren't able to force CPS to move the boys and particularly not for that reason. You can certainly make the request if you would like but there is nothing in the law that supports the position that 1) a parent in your situation has the right to determine where children are placed and 2) a foster parent's sexual orientation is a reason to request that they be moved.
However, CPS is (or at least used to be) required to place the children with a relative if at all possible so if you have relatives that are qualified as foster parents or that you believe could get qualified quickly as foster parents then that would be an approach you could take.
I am about to logoff for the evening but will be back online tomorrow morning.
