CPS vs Custody Order
I'm so frustrated I have to blog it out.
CPS caseworker told DH and I that BM tested positive for meth and she is obviously mentally ill, but they cannot do anything about her visitation rights to SD because the Family Court Order trumps CPS.
They are strongly recommending DH and I go back to court to have the order modified to only allow BM supervised visits with SD.
DH and I can't afford to go to court! We can't afford the 20 grand we owe the attorney for getting custody of SD last year. Yet, we do not meet the reqirements to get free or discounted legal services either.
I just don't get it. If CPS has the evidence BM is unfit and SD is in danger with her, why can't they take it to court to modify the order and PROTECT THE CHILD? That is what they do right?
I just keep thinking there has to be a way they can do it. Our caseworker is fairly new to the field and has admitted ours is the worst case she has had thus far. I'm praying for a miracle that an answer will be revealed, and quick.
Anyone ever heard of anything like this???
Any suggestions on what we should do???
