Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?

Basically it only goes to court when cps goes which they are telling me I want go back to court until June

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

The issue is that your lawyer is not going to call you daily or weekly or even monthly. Your lawyer only has to communicate with you when there are changes in your situation. The person you should be communicating with should be your social worker and your therapist. The two of them should be working together with you towards reunification. If they are not doing so, then you need to contact your lawyer and you need to inform him that they are not pursuing reunification and you want your attorney to intervene so that you can be reunified with your children.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
