You've provided a lot of information so I'll see what I can do to start to work through it.
If you respond at length, I would ask that you break your thoughts down into paragraphs and avoid the use of abbreviations or shorthand. The posts you've left thus far are a bit difficult to understand. Thank you for your courtesies in this matter.
There are some very significant issues being faced by your daughter and, by extension, you. She has the criminal issues from the very serious felony offense and the possibility of having her parental rights terminated. I would suggest these are the two most serious issues in the law. As such, it would be extremely prudent to look into obtaining competent legal counsel to assist.
First, you should begin with your state bar association. The Iowa State Bar has a website, it is located at www.iabar.net.
Additionally, Martindale Hubbell is a national organization that rates attorneys across the country. Their website is located at http://www.martindale.com/.
Another nationwide website is located at http://www.avvo.com/. This site lists attorneys by geographic location and area of practice.
Additionally, there is quite likely a legal aid society in your area. A quick internet search and/or phone book search should locate the society closest to you.
Each of these resources will have a wealth of information as to attorneys in your area that handle such cases and that would provide services for free or at a reduced cost. I would suggest you check each site out and you will surely find a great number of attorneys that meet your needs. Pick a few to meet with in person so that you can thoroughly explain the situation and then retain the one that you feel can best represent your daughter's interests.
