Welcome & thank you for your question. I am the expert that will be answering your questions. I am a Certified Child Welfare Law Specialist.

Certainly that fact alone could never justify the removal of a child. They would have to allege additional facts related to your daughter's fitness to care for the child. Have you seen any of the Court paperwork?

Family Lawyer: Bruce Schreiber, Family Law Attorney replied 3 months ago

Your daughter MUST appear in Court tomorrow. She will be able to see the paperwork then.

If she cannot afford a lawyer, she should apply for a Court Appointed Lawyer. She will be given the right to fight the allegations that CPS makes. But what you mention is not enough.

In the meantime, if you are able to care for the child, you should let CPS know that you want to be considered for placement.

how can we fight them if the only thing they have against her is the chromosome thing if you say that is not enough to taken him away.? May i contact you tomorrow after we hear the allegations they have in court
Family Lawyer: Bruce Schreiber, Family Law Attorney replied 3 months ago

I doubt that will be all that is listed on the paperwork. Her attorney will have to disprove any other allegations. If that is the only one, he or she should argue that it is not enough and unconstitutional.
