I would like to know if I have a case against the hospital?
can I sue them?
no. she was released to him when she was discharged(approx.5days after the birth).
I am not & have not been married to the father. on our own we had a DNA paternity test done while I was pregnant. he is the father.
we do not live together. we have separate residences.
I did tell the hospital he was the father, but he is not on her birth certificate.
CPS took over while we were in the hospital, because the hospital called them.She was not in CPS custody. just in the hospital then I was told they still wanted her to be placed with the father, even though the baby was negative.
When my OBGYN came in to check me. he said he didn't understand what was going on. he said we had a beautiful birth no problems.
I was refusing heavy narcotics(because I wanted to be alert for my baby) they wanted to give me to be more alert& they kept trying to get me to take heavy drugs.
what type of an attorney will I need for this kind of case & are there referals?
please tell me as much as possible.
I believe the answer is yes. CPS took over and they directed the hospital to only release the baby to the father.
I did not have drugs in my system.
what they found was given to me by the hospital. so the hospital lied to the police because they suspected?
also what about my baby testing negative and they still kept her?
im confused as to what type of attorney handles this kind of case?
I feel as though my rights were violated on a few different levels.
