He has dodged the order from sheriff attempt to deliver over 13 times.They were residing in Texas for 6 weeks prior to Living in LA for 2.5 years, where their 18 month old girl was born.After a verbally violent occurrence and threats of killing ( brandishing a gun) he left their residence in a mutual agreement of not to return until it was appropriate. my daughter and her mother ( who was also threatened) filed police reports.Her husband filed a restraining order not allowing my daughter to leave Texas with her daughter.My daughters attorney motioned to dismiss based on Texas not Having legal Jurisdiction. The Judge ruled LA to be the home state and dismissal pending on a status conference with the LA judge.My daughter, per advice of legal counsel relocated filed a divorce petition and Protective order in LA, and relocated to LA.In the meantime, Her husband retained a LA lawyer stating she had defrauded the court in some way when she filed the divorce and protective order in LA. Claims she filed prior to moving to LA and false pretenses. They also petitioned Texas to have legal Jurisdiction because they had established a permanent residence in Texas.The fact however was Texas was temporary ...the move was intended to be up to 6 months while my daughter gathered work education and experience as an NICU nurse to qualify her for employment and sake of her daughters to grow up in CT where her all family is located.Her Husband does not have a job in Texas. His only connection is a sister who lives there.

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

Cps has legal and physcial custody of my 14 year old

cps has legal and physcial custody of my 14 year old daughter through a chips petition. They now have finished investigation on our family and found that i maltreated my daughter by not reporting a sexual molestation of her that she told me about a week after it happened and did not go into details. I am a certified nurse assistant and this will effect my job for ten years. I have 15 days to request reconsideration. my lawyer says that I should do that but we will most likely have to take it to state level. The problem is we dont want our daughter back home. We want her in a in-residental treatment facility where three mental health hospitals have recommended. CPS stated in court that their goal is reunification. I dont think cps is going to help her and follow the recommendations of the hospitals as they didnt for three years. What do I do?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: MinnesotaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: yes but he is not helping and hasnt listened to usJA: What advice did they give you?Customer: admit to two sections of the chips petition and not the part where we were neglectful by not providing our daughter with food, shelter, clothing, etc....and we didJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: yes everything of the last 5 years of trying to get our daughter help.
