Customer Question
My children were placed...

My children were placed in protective custody due to living conditions. I just moved into this home which is why it is cluttered. I am in wichita ks. What are my next steps?

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

It just happened tonight. I have sole custody and their father has been out of their life for 2 years which is the reason I had to move out of my home

Lawyer's Assistant: Have they talked to a lawyer about this yet?

No.
