I would appriciate anyone that has had good or BAD experiences with the county or DHS, to post any or all problems you have had. I would love to hear from you and anyone else.

I just want lonoke to know they have taken 4 kids into their custody that truly did not deserve to be taken from there mom and from their home where they were very well loved and taken care of! I understand the kids needed to be removed from the scene until they finished with their mom but they should have given the kids back!! the mother of these 4 children is an exseptionaly great well rounded woman that truly is being mentally and emotionally scarrd for life as well as the kids are being emotionally and mentally scarrd not to mention that lonoke has failed to get these children the help that they need as far as the oldest girl and her headache issues and the second to oldest was supposed to be going to counseling well lonoke has failed to cotinue treatment which the kids mom always made sure they were going to treatment and all the much needed appointments!

DHS cannot take a chance. I would rather know that they are doing something to help the children rather than to know that they are seeing potential danger, but yet give the children back to the parents. There is always a reason why they take the children and there is always evidence of abuse or potential abuse before they are taken away from the parents. I hear so many stories and have seen first hand where children were given back to the parents and one was abused to the point that she attempted suicide.
It's a catch 22 situation with DHS and it is always better to be safe than sorry. You can't give a childs life back once it is taken.

What about the parents that do everything to a tee that DHS requests of them to prove themselves and have safe homes for their children and have medical proof the children were never harmed or neglected but still refuse to give the children back to the parents where the children want be and need to be. All the while these children are using space that could be used to save other children that are truely in danger.

They don't even take half the ones they should! Is the mom on drugs? Maybe the man she's with? Something happend. What is thier reason for taking them? You haven't told us that yet.

DHS will never take children without a good reason . . . even if they have to make it up.

Your comment is not funny. Just so you know.
And for the people who are posting that kids are being taken for no reason at all...call an attorney! AR has 'free or inexpensive' law services that the mothers can use, if they can't afford an attorney.

Ultimately the judge decides if the children should have be placed or not. If the children are in immediate danger, DCFS will take the children into emergancy care. They are only held if the parents have no home, are in danger, or are being neglected. The last thing DCFS wants to do is take children. That only adds to their already overloaded case load. And, most parents believe their kids should not have been taken. They are knee deep in their lives and situations and surround themselves with people who parent the
exact same way they parent themselves. They don't know any different and need to be taught or risk losing their kids.

What about when the judge is in the same boat as the mother and there children have not been taken? This is the way of Lonoke, judges, police station, sheriff office and detectives should all be indited in one way or another!

It wasn't meant to be funny. It was a counter to those who think DHS always has just cause for removal. Same as some people think cops and prosecutors never lie, nor tamper with evidence, and judges are always fair and honest.

I was living with my bfs mom and we got in an argument and I was so fed up with her so me and my son went back to my moms house. And she thought I was gonna call dhs on her so she called it on me sayin I was drinking and doing drugs and whatever else. So a caseworker came by and asked me to go take a drug screen at the lonoke office so I left right after her to go do it. And their test said I failed for thc and meth! And I've never touched meth in my life! I've smoked pot but not recent enough to fail for it AT ALL. So I was freaking out, begged for another one. My mom even said shed pay for it or whatever They refused and decided to take me (I'm 17) and my baby into custody, they said theyd send the one I failed to the lab. And until the results came back we had to stay in dhs. We went to some old lady's house in bfe. A boy that was stayin there tried to get me to have sex with him! Then the next day we got put in a shelter. The case worker went and changed my wic to her name! Shut off BOTH of our insurance! Shut off my foodstamps! All within the first 3 days. On the 5th day the results came back as a false positive, just like I told them. And the judge let me go home. It's been over a month and the wic office says they can't take her name off until she comes in. She won't. Our insurance is still off. And they still haven't fixed my foodstamps. It's like every week it's something else they fucked up and won't fix! When it was their fault I had to go anyway. And we never heard a sorry or anything! I'm so pissed about it all still!
