Yes the TGO is in place and return date is Aug 16 to fight for guardianship the bio dad of one child filed an order also but stated to Cfs that he won't be raising them his sister wants to raise them even the child that's not blood related

Have you checked to see if you are eligible for legal aid?

I can't get legal aid I have no money and too many assets
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

What you will have to prove is that what you are asking for is in the best interests of the children.

You can try and prove to the court that you can provide a safe and secure environment for the children who will have consistency and that you will protect them and that you are not in a situation of abuse and the children would therefore never be at risk for being in a home where abuse was going on.

There is no reason for the court to say the children should not be with you because you were a victim of abuse or because you have a learning disability.

And you can make it clear that you would always put your grandchildren ahead of your daughter if it comes down to that.

Does that make sense?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
