My friend just got her children taken away from her by cps. The father of the children hit one of his children in the face and that is ultimately why they took the kids from her. She has been cooperating and taking the classes and doing what she is being required to do. She had a court date today and they told her they still werent going to give her back her children. What can she do in order to convince the courts to give her back her children?

If she is doing everything that is being asked and they are not giving the kids back and not telling her why... she needs a lawyer to help her straighten it all out.

If she feels she is not getting the answers she needs she needs to try to talk to the case worker's supervisor and see what is going on. I can not tell you why court and CPS is holding the kids back from her and no one else can tell you here either. But they still must have some good enough reason to do so.

How long ago did all this happen? How long have the children been in care? I just ask because maybe they need to see that she has a safe environment for longer? I know when students I teach have been removed from care and then are returned, it is a fairly lengthy process, as it needs to go through case conference and then court orders.

Maybe she isnt telling me everything because she does have a lawyer she said the courts still believe the children are in danger

Yeah she has been doing everything that they have asked of her.. No she had no idea about the altercation until she got home from work. She was the one i believe who called police but they still took the kids from her anyways. She doinng everything they are asking but they still told her no and they arent telling her why.

Maybe she has not done all expected of her but only the court knows and CPS. Maybe they are afraid that dad will be allowed back in. Maybe they suspect she had a hand in it somehow knowing he had done this and had not reported it herself or something. I do not know. All I do know is that she has to abide the court's decisions and follow through on what they ask until they are satisfied.
