  • Answers from Two Experts requested: How can a Native American mother get her son back from

    How can a Native American mother get her son back from her Native American mother who has been granted guardianship in Oklahoma?
  • Hi Zoey, its Tim again - youve been helping me out with advice

    Hi Zoey, it's Tim again - you've been helping me out with advice about my 14 year old daughter, whom has been giving me a great deal of trouble.
    Sunday, after she spent a weekend with my mother, I noticed that she had a mark on her neck that strongly resembled a "hickey" (remember those?). Evidently, one of her summer school teachers made a report to the police about a bruise on her neck last Thursday. Last Wednesday night, a guy that was doing some work on my house told me she snuck out. This is when she may have had a get-together with her boyfriend, and the hickey probably occurred, since the teacher made the report the following day. My daughter managed to hide it from me till Sunday.

    I was visited by an investigator at my workplace today that was following up on this report. I told him that it was most likely a hickey, but he insists on following up with talking with her about it - in regard to the incident that occurred at our home that you had been advising me on. My daughter has admitted to me that it is a hickey.

    I told the investigator that he could visit with her tomorrow at 10 am if he just talks about the current mark on her neck and doesn't bring up the incident that occurred 2 and 1/2 weeks ago, just to satisfy his question as to where the mark on her neck came from.

    My question: Should I allow this to happen, or just simply cancel this appointment. He assures me that he's talked to Child Protection and all reports regarding me are excellent (I'm sure they are, they know what I'm going through with my daughter, and the efforts that I'm making), all he wants to do is talk to her and possibly send a report to a county office that may supply some aide to me with trying to keep her in line. He stated that these are two separate incidents, and he is following up on the latest.

    Thank you Zoey!

  • CPS came to my home and took my grandaughter from me on Thursday.

    CPS came to my home and took my grandaughter from me on Thursday. they came there to try and get me to admit to domestic violence from my exbf. his 7yr old son said that he hit me all the time. he has never hit me, argued, yes. my ex and his ex-wife are in a custody dispute, she wants full custody. if they could get me to agree to domestic violence then they could charge my exbf with child endangerment and they would be a lot closer to getting full custody. she was was very intimidating and tried to put words in my mouth. the exbf is an addict so she also said that i had drugs around me. not true. when she learned that i had a 7yr old living with me, she asked me where she was, i told her my mom was watching her while i worked, she made my mom bring her over here immediately and then said that she had to remove her from my home. no court order, no inninent danger and she left. no paperwork, never returned any of my calls.
