A cps worker came to my home today to interview is about

A cps worker came to my home today to interview is about sexual abuse because my son told a girl he was going to stick his wiener in her butt at school. During the questioning I was asked if we would submit to a drug test and I told her no because I felt that was unnecessary. She told us she really didn't see any grounds for sexual abuse and was going to ask her supervisor of she could close the case. Can they still take my children if I told them I wouldn't submit to a drug test? I had a previous case that was closed three months ago from when my daughter passed away from sids. We submitted to a drug test the day she died because they requested one and failed for marijuana which they used to stay in our lives for six months while we completed out patient. We tested negative for the next test they have about a month into the investigation. I just wanted to know if that would come back to haunt me.

I live in Florida and my husband filed for divorce after

I live in Florida and my husband filed for divorce after leaving me and abandoning our marriage to be with his affair partner. He left me with 2 kids all of the bills and I have no money to hire an attorney. That being said, I filed my response by myself and today received a letter from his attorney that a motion had been filed to strike my response because it includes requests for affirmative relief as opposed to affirmative defenses. What should I do next?

I am in a voluntary cps referred outpatient program due to a

I am in a voluntary cps referred outpatient program due to a positive voluntary drug test. Cps told me a physician from the lab would call to discuss my current medications but that after more than a month has not happened. I am a single mother and I am in group sessions three days a week with extra assigned hours on weekends for outside meetings. My follow up drug tests have been negative and or showing lowered levels. They are now trying to force me off a prescription for which I am prescribed for my arthritis. I am a vet and I need this time to be looking for full time work. My daughter is still with me and no recommendation for removal has been made. I need to know my rights. I have had to turn down interviews because of this and I need to work.

Law Question: = OK False statements/testimony have hurt me

Law Question: Richard = OKFalse statements/testimony have hurt me in litigation as rulings were made evidently based on false/perjured statements/testimony by attorneys.In New Mexico: 'rules?' prevent civil lawsuits for Perjury. [ understand that filing a false police report is in itself a felony].I have filed criminal perjury/subornation complaints with the FBI [federal criminal felony...fines and/or up to 5 years in prison] Also with local DA, Police and Sheriff...all of which will not proceed without a Judge's direction. I had asked for a 'referral/recommendation' from the presiding criminal court judge in our 2nd Judicial District (Hon. Charles Brown), he referred me by letter to the DA, the Police and the Sheriff. Catch 22..... runaround....a 'rigged' system???Attorney Deceit. In New Mexico: "untrue statement by an attorney to a judge, a party, or to another attorney....with the intent to deceive". In Civil Court...Treble damages; possible disbarment.Is there any 'standing' requirement to file a civil lawsuit for attorney deceit?Can a 'witness' make a complaint?How about an officer in a corporation that which had been a party?Any concerned citizen? (Isn't the 'deceit' the issue--like a 'crime/tort' against the 'state/bar')?What about a case that has been closed, but lost because of inability to defend? (duress, finances, insufficient counsel)Would an entire law firm be served? or just individual attorneys?What about several attorneys at various times, with the same essential issues....(my former wife has had several attorneys [who suspectedly dropped her after they find out the truth, or she doesn't pay, or both])What about one's own attorney??? or multiple attorneys..........................................................................................................Please give me as much as you know. Just Answer style. Please don't ask me to go find a lawyer. I have tried. Suspected 'cronyism' makes lawyers reluctant to sue one another. The client remains the victim.I suspect this may not be a comfortable question for any lawyer, so if you do not feel fully devoted, please refer to another lawyer with sympathy in this regard. I mean to another Just Answer lawyer, not a local attorney.I have lost my first born child/daughter thru false/perjured accusations. Our domestic courts have a statistically historical 'jane crow' bias against fathers. (Meanwhile 90% of incarcerated inmates had to try to survive growing up deprived of their fathers' love, protection, and encouragement). Notwithstanding 'irreconcilable marriage differences', my former wife and I cooperated reasonably well during our courtship and marriage...right up to the time of her lawyer(s) contention and drawn out litigation....and deceit.We could have given our daughter so much more. And still could. My daughter is 36 now and likely has borne [my] grandchildren. I believe my daughter loves me. My remarried wife of 27 years also believes that my daughter still loves me. But my ex-wife has bent/alienated my daughter's mind for 34 years.I cannot contact my daughter due to a a 'protective' order which my wife's latest attorney was able to include all of my former wife's family....In 32 years there has never been any genuine domestic abuse or violence...never any complaints civilly or criminally...only after child support ran out ($100,000+ faithfully paid) did my ex further proceed to 'wound' me by barring me from seeing my daughter ever again. I truly believe that the attorneys may be able to talk to my ex to productively mediate a future ongoing positive pro-daughter strategy. I cannot abandon her....children do not outgrow their need for their parents love...and vice versa. I am Christian. I forgive, but I need to be faithful to my offspring, on her own and independent, but deprived of some relationship with dad, and her two half brothers...who love her, and she loves, but as mentioned before in this rambling, she has been brainwashed and lives in fear of a (belived mentally disordered mom---who was similarly deprived of her father's love by grandma, who 'abducted' my ex wife. Thanks for listening. Please help me with the attorney deceit case--from which all of these tragedies descend.

Here is a brief narrative of the case against me. Back in

Here is a brief narrative of the case against me.Back in 1996, Linda files for divorce.Judge Stone awards her one half of my salary for seven years, plusone half of my USAF retirement if and when I retire, plus one half of my KOLO-TV retirementif and when I retire.She got the seven years of my salary.Fast forward 20 years later.I get a nasty letter from her attorney telling me to pay up or else.The letter contends that there was a "technical error" in the original QDRO degreethat Linda's attorney prepared himself.For that reason, the retirements were never acted upon until now.This is the directive ordering the payment of funds to her.So now it has been never ending emails of threats and intimidation that keepsgetting worseNow her attorney has filed a motion to order the court to take 100 percent of myAF retirement until the arrears are paid in full. He suggests the amount is 24-thousand dollars.Of course, I do not have it, nor is there any hopeI will ever have it. In short he wants me to become destitute in order to pay off Linda.My argument is, due to Linda's attorney's screw up with the original QDRO, it should be his responsibilityto pay arrears due to his mal practice. I will also contend that Linda should sue him for his screw up, which therefore puts him into a conflict of interest in his zest to crucify me.At any rate, I do agree to pay Linda 150 dollars a month for ten years, but I will not agree to paying 24-thousand dollarsin a lump sum, or in 1000-payments until I'm dead.What I want to know is what are my options.I went to the courthouse in Reno yesterday and picked up a motion package to give to the judge as part of my defense.And that will include the original letter where he admits there were technical errors.I might also add, that several years ago, I gave Linda a couple of hundred dollars to assist her in a pyramid scheme she was involved in. I told her I'd help her as much as I could, but I asked her to leave my USAF retirement alone.She told me, "Oh I forgot about that." When nothing was filed after that I assumed she was keeping her word.My financial position is. My only income is my retirement. I have no savings, and I don't own anything. My USAF retirement is 950 a month, Gray Television is 420-dollars a month. And I do have my social security which is not part of the QDRO.That's it in a nutshell
