To amend the pleading do I file another motion to amend?And if I ask to "consolidate" would that make me a party to the CPS case?Because I am not a party now . I have no way to find out who the child's attorney is. Or no way of knowing who the Judge is. CPS is very dirty. They never told me they removed the child. I found out one day later. Found out they had a hearing the next day. Called the court explained I had an open case. They told me they can't tell me who the Judge is. So I faxed a letter informing the Judge of my pending case with this father and child . Court clerk told me to fax it to her she will get it to the Judge.
Turns out she received the fax and told me she couldn't give it to the Judge . So she gave it to a CPS supervisor. Who did nothing with it. And court proceeded.This is NJ. What's the difference in amending a pleading versus just filing an intervention for custody?
CPS has done many bad things. I could prove them negligent and not acting in the best interest of the child
. I have excellent evidence. I have a court transcript where the DAG asks the Judge to give child to the father . Tells the Judge the father was substantiated for child abuse and had a mental evaluation that required additional counseling but the division doesn't feel he's a threat to the child. Judge doesn't ask any questions and gives child to father. I have much more than this . Showing incompetence on the part of CPS , and the Judge. Although I'm smart enough not to make a big issue out of the Judge's mistakes.I am not playing games with them. And want to try to stop the child from being in foster care
and the system indefinitely. My idea is to throw a wrench in now and get a Judge , if not to grant me custody . Then at the least to force CPS to follow proper procedure with this child. Like assessing me as a foster home for my Granddaughter in a timely manner.
I am currently a certified foster. So that shouldn't entail too much.
I am sure if I don't involve the court I will not stand a chance for anything. I just didn't know if an intervention can be filed in NJ ?
Please clarify for me and give me your thoughts please.
