Customer Question
Do we have any recourse...
Do we have any recourse or case against DSHS in Wa State for removing a child that we’ve had for 4 of his 6 months of life and placing him with someone that doesn’t even know him but knows Mom? This is a case of severe trauma and abuse. Dad is in jail and Mom has no visition due to court order.

Hi. I was in the middle of answering last night when the site went down for maintenance.

As I said the other day, your options are very limited. You have little say in the placement decisions of the agency. States will sometimes allow interested parties to intervene in a case for good cause. Here is a link to an old case almost exactly like yours.... the Foster Parents were denied. I believe you would be today under current law.

Have you talked to the Attorney for the child?
