Law Educator Esq. I was informed recently about a hearing

Law Educator Esq.I was informed recently about a hearing coming up/actually settlement conference. What all happens here?I know this is a great thing premise on a judge had already inform our family that there will be no pre-trial dates. He mention just recent about he want at the settlement conference something called"a party who has full settlement authority." Can you clearly expound for me what that is."Defense had submitted the "summary judgement"to have it tossed out/wasn't going to work lawyer said.He said i, the parent and my kidsprovided just way too much facts/too much proof/evidence to demonstrate the misconduct on behalf of the state employees,and as a result this lead to without a doubt,(when preponderance was only needed)but so much proof a child was harmed bad, under state supervision while state knew entire time for years, the parent was good, and well spoken parent,and not a risk to child but cps employee lied in court(lawyer counted from transcripts a whopping 51 x and also withheld proof parent was innocent. Judge again for years never even schedule a pre-trial date.and did not want the summary judgement on the docket.(We all had to privately give it to him)without placing on docket. Judge review state position/and our opposition (1 month ago)and now we learn about this great news today.So...-Note:I have been told by our lawyer who is taking over the suit(for settlement purposes)-he said, "it's a very good thing."and how this way the person on the defense side, usually the lawyer, does not have to "run back and forth in hall to make a call to the whoever is in charge,is this right."i am happy either way.We been suffering long enough against child protection agency.thank you for your well written answer, in advance."Good night.-

My boyfriend was arrested on a felony child abuse charge but

My boyfriend was arrested on a felony child abuse charge but really all he did was push my son to take a phone away during a fight with me. I spoke with children protective services immediately (interview with my parents, myself and son), filed a restraining order that they and the police said I HAD TO DO and dropped the restraining order.What happens if I do not want to seek charges (which i told the states attorneys office) and would like to allow my boyfriend home after he finishes his alcohol rehab which is currently in.I have no record, my boyfriend has no record and my son is not abused. But I hear horror stories

An ex girlfriend of the man I am with called child

An ex girlfriend of the man I am with called child protection services and lied. When they came they found the accusations of unsupervised kids to be false but because I smoke pot (not around my kids) I have to go to classes, and my boyfriend refused to take a urinalysis so they made me move out of his house. I'm remodeling my house so we are staying at my oldest daughters house until then. Even though they found the accusations of unsupervised kids not true, they still make me go to child abuse classes and said that if I didn't go then my oldest daughter could lose her baby too. Is this right?

My ex-son-in-law is living in his parents house. His dad

My ex-son-in-law is living in his parents house. His dad died - no will, no executor for dad. His mom is alive, but incapacitated in a nursing home - extremely bad stroke almost 3 yrs ago from which she never recovered. His sister is executor for mom. The house is in dad's name and sister's name. Sister is also is on the deed for a house down the block where she lives, also in her name and dad's name. The sister is trying to force son-in-law out of the house - called 911, while he had the 2 grandkids there. (He and our daughter are on amicable terms since the divorce; he is doing everything possible to be a good dad, and has them every other week, overnight.) The next day "someone" called Child Protective Services and reported that he was drinking and on drugs with the kids there. (He was not using alcohol or drugs.) He knows he needs an attorney, but can't afford one - he is currently on unemployment, but is expecting to work again soon. We can see that the sister is clearly harassing him to try to gain control of both houses and force him out. (They have not been on good terms for most of their lives.) We advised to record and journal everything. What else can we advise?

Prior to this my son n his family came to stay with me for six months because they needed help..after they moved out I would help them take care of my grandaughter on D weekends or whenever they needed help..when my grandkids were taken by the state I was accused by cps of negligent because they say that I would allow the parents be around my grandaughter..when she was in my care.. I love my grandkids very much..n I would never put them in a unsafe invironment their well being and safety were my priority concern when I had my grandaughter in my care...the state says that I can't be trusted so they took all my rights away from my grandkids because of a biased report on me when this incident happened..they say I can't be trusted...at the moment I have filled out a form to see if I can be qualified to foster my grandkids or to adopt them if it comes to this..I filled out this form and challenged cps of the report that the report on me was biased..I never neglected my grandkids..I will be going through an intensive review if I am qualified which I shldnt have to do because I did nothing wrong..I was just helping..what is my situation if I don't pass their qualification..I so dearly want my grandkids and their hearts and my families heart will be broken because we have built a strong loving relationship with them..what should I do?

I was investigated by cps in 2009 and 2010 because I was in a severe depression and abusing tranquilzers, my children were 8 and 9 years of age. The investigation started because the school nurse called cps due to the fact that I partially rolled over my daughter's foot with my car tire when I was under the influence of Xanax as I was dropping my children at school. My daughter did not sustain any serious injuries thank goodness. She was basically fine. I have since recovered from my illness and would like to work at a nursery school. Will this arise on my background check?JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New YorkJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No that's basically it
