Q. Please be kind enough to clarify what you would like me to Answer
What is needed to reopen an adoption case and are there any attorneys bravee enough battle state we know we were wronged. Its in court records too. Either with the grand jury to investigate wrong doing to get my granddaughter back. Will call tomorfow if you can assist.
Good afternoon, Sharron, Thank you for your reply,
In order to open an adoption case, a Petition must be filed with the Court that granted the adoption. You should not have been denied the right to adopt your granddaughter, and I cannot say why you were denied the right to raise your granddaughter, but it appears that the agency would have to be investigated and their documents reviewed for wrongdoing. I agree that the attorney has to be pretty strong and not fear public agencies.
