I am having trouble getting one of my children back from a bad custody situation.

I did fight. I was denied an appeal. They held a hearing in secret. It was totally illegal. I was trying to get an appeal. I lived right acrossed the street from the court. She did adopt him, but it was an illegal adoption. I have been to college and I took an Honor's course about government and our US court system.

im guessing since it has been 8 years, that your cousin has probably adopted him by now. they try not to leave children in the states custody for more than 18 months. if that is the case, then there is not much you can do, because that would also mean your rights have been severed. you should have fought when they took him 8 years ago, now your a little late.

Well they must have sighted a reason. If your parental rights weren't severed then you should be able to fight it. The courts usually ask that certain requirements be met depending on the situation ( like rehab , having a home , a job etc) . My experience has been that the courts generally want the kids to go back to bio-parents unless it's truly unsafe. Of course there's corruption but thats not the "norm" .
