What should I do? If they win adoption can I appeal it? If they win will I ever have the chance to get them back? Please help :(
In February of 2012 I sent my children to West Virginia from Alabama to temporarily stay with my exs brother and wife (JJ & Danielle.) At the time I was trying to relocate to West Virginia. My children's father went to jail in Oct 2011 & was sentenced to 17 1/2 years. I did have a drug problem that I kicked on my own. In April 2011 I took an overdose and was in the hospital on life support almost 2 weeks. I was and still am struggling in some aspects of my life. I called JJ & Danielle & told them I was coming to get the kids in May & the very same night I was arrested for a DUI. They then went and got emergency custody, so when I called again a few days later & told them I was coming, they informed me not to show up they had custody. Now they are pushing for forced adoption on the 29th.

Can i get a license suspension for dui removed from my record since i was not convicted of dui?
I got a dui in june 2015. All charges were dropped last year( i l live in wv) . I completed the wv dmv interlock program, and never lost my privilege to drive, just had a restricted license for the req time period. No conviction is on my driving record, but it does state suspended license due to dui , even though no conviction. Is there a way to have this removed? I am trying to go back to school for my cdl
Unfortunately not. A general copy of a driving record one gets at a local DMV goes back five years.
