I need information about getting a free child advocacy group

I need information about getting a free child advocacy group or attorney to help two children ages 12 and 15 to get away from abusive parents and their respective current boyfriend/ girlfriend. Neither home is fit for them to live in. Both children have other places and people who will love and care for them , but the parents refuse despite neither actually wanting the children. The mother wants the daughter for a 'cinderella' childcare giver and babysitter for her younger siblings. The 12 yr old boy is neglected and ignored except when she wants him to do something. Her boyfriend has been extremely abusive to both. Their father came to the mothers and got them only to let his girlfriend throw her out of the house then him drop her back with his parent s telling her he doesn't give a ---- where she goes he doesn't want anything to do with her. This all started ( with the father ) over her being on a google chat site with her friends. I will take her. She will not be abused physically or emotionally and I monitor her conversations with her friends. I have had physical (though not legal ) custody of her for 61/2 yrs when she was a infant to the age of 7. The mother took her out of spite and has had at least 9 live in the last 7 years, has had her 2 oldest children taken by the state, and has had 4 more live births ( none of which she cared for) after a few miscarriages to at least 5 of those men. THESE CHILDREN NEED HELP NOW.I'm not rich, but educated, am disabled from my nursing career from an MVA. PLEASE. TIFFANY has already reached her breaking point and Rick is well on his way. I need answers for them.

JustAnswers.com 2016-02-01 1518 MonI am reading out state law and there is one part I cant tell if they are talking about the child or the adult. This statute if defining definitions. It is a paragraph for Child Protective Services. Are they talking about if an adult has a mental condition that will limit the child's welfare or are they talking about having a child that has a "Mental Disorder" that affects the childs welfare?(23) "Mental disorder" means a serious emotional and mental disturbance that severely limits a minor's development and welfare over a significant period of time.

Yesterday I received the recommendation from the Court's

Yesterday I received the recommendation from the Court's mediator and it was not in my favor. My court trial is set for February 4th. However, I still have not received the child welfare cases reports. I completely disagree with everything on the reports. In fact the court's mediator added inaccurate information about my past and my family that is detrimental to my case. The inaccuracy contributed to her findings and she used inaccurate information to conclude with her recommendation. I now need to postpone my trial date in family law court. I am in the state of California. I need to know what exactly do I need to do at this point to postpone my trial date for at least one month so that I can prepare for my case and supersede the mediator's recommendation.
