Good evening Michelle,
I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I have been a licensed attorney for more than 3 decades and I handle family law matters.
This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge of just $5 more I can offer you a personal phone conference during which there is no limitation on the number of questions you can ask of me, as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.
Let me know if you don't want a call and I will be happy continue here with an answer for you.
Either way, whether I call you or not, in order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. What factual basis is there to take your children from the father after XPS placed the children with him?
2. Emergency custody requests require a showing of imminent harm, abuse or neglect of the children. What facts do you have to show that so far?
3. Is your daughter residing with you, by chance?
4. Did the grandchildren from your daughter's first marriage see their father between the divorce and the recent placement?
Thanks in advance,
