My seven-year-old daughter was taken out of her classroom

My seven-year-old daughter was taken out of her classroom where she attends at El Morro Elementary in Laguna Beach California. It's the number one top rated Elementary School in Orange County at the time. We live in a luxury apartment in Laguna Beach. My daughter is shaking and crying because to social workers took her out of her classroom today and questioned her and had her thinking that they were going to take her away from her mommy. We have no affiliation with social services at all whatsoever. My daughter is highly upset and I'm afraid it's going to affect her in school now. We have no open case with the Department of Social Services and my question is is there any legal action that I can take because no one will answer their phones or tell me who these two social workers were or why they took my child out of her classroom. This is embarrassing. There are plenty of kids out there that really need the help of child protective services. Not a little girl that's attending and doing well and the best school in Orange County, and has a tutor twice a week, and also lives in Laguna Beach where she is also playing soccer and is in the chorus after school called. She also attends the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach after school program when she leaves school every day until I get off work and go and pick her up. Please someone help me this is not fair this is not right and I have back to school night parents only tomorrow night and I'm going to be looked upon as the mother whose child was taken out of her learning environment and question but to social workers and shaking and crying.

Illinois divorce, 2002. DuPage Co. Disbursement Unit has not

Illinois divorce, 2002. DuPage Co. Disbursement Unit has not counted the direct deposits that have been made by the VA, as was agreed by separation/divorce contract. As a result there is an outstanding arrearage of $3,4k+ principle and $9k+ interest based on these deposits not being credited. Passport has been frozen by Dept of State and significant dunnings added on each of the 3 credit bureaus. My complete request for redetermination has been made to State of Illinois to review these VA deposits and credit them toward unpaid balance, as they will zero out any debt. They declined to accept the evidence from the VA. Question is, how to get these verified payments credited so balance is wiped out and passport cleared and credit cleaned up (eg. completely removed from history) without significant legal billing at the normal rate of ~$200/hr?

Any case law from any state that seems similar to my

Any case law from any state that seems similar to my situationI understand each case is different and that mine can be rather complex but id like to see a similar case to mine and its resultsThis case involves two 9 year old children from FL that were cared for by two unmarried parents up until age 5. The mother left the household upon breakup and I cared for and provided for the majority of their needs until June 2016 when their mother agreed to care for them for the summer. Previous to this, the mother moved out of state to GA in Sept 2015. Instead of sending them back as agreed, she has kept them past the original verbal agreement.I have since filed a petition for paternity and related relief (custody). Paternity has already been established by way of AOP and even more so with previous order of child support.I also filed a motion for child pick up which was granted but cannot be enforced in another state, yetAre there any other remedies as well, should i be seeking any other type of relief.She will not let me see them. She only lets me speak to them by phone. She refuses to send them home
