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.
JustAnswer is not a law firm and although the attorneys in the Legal Categories are all licensed to practice in their respective jurisdictions, we are not permitted to take on customers as clients, nor form any Attorney-Client relationships. However, I can provide you with a link to a couple of free Lawyer Referral Services which you can call, tell them what your situation is and ask for the names of several experienced Family Law Attorneys who can help you. You can speak to all the attorneys, ask any questions you want, and then select the one with whom you feel the most comfortable,
