My children are in foster care and cps will not give them back they have found every excuse not to give them back to me. September 13th 2011 here it is March 28th 2012 and I still cannot get my kids back. I havenít seen my children since fib 14th 2012 and imp so hurt they said I had Benzes in my drug test which is not true because I donít do drugs when all this stuff happened I had nothing no car lived out of town no job no means to take care of them but now I have had a job for 6 months got a car, my own apartment in town, completed my parenting classes, I am also in collage getting my bachelorís degree in business I have only 2 more years left. I have done everything in my case plan I mean everything. Their father is incarcerated and told them I was on all kind of drugs which was a lie so they took my visits and I had to do an ash and some other kind of evaluation which everything came back where there was no reason why I shouldnít have my children for visits or in my home. I have been going to a counsel that I really like and she says only positive things about me to do so now they said I need another counsel which is not right because I really like the coupler I have just started trusting her but since there is nothing negative to say about me they want me get another one. I had three clean drug test before this as and evaluation they told me I could have visits if everything came back ok from my evaluatuations but now they said I need 3 more clean drug test and they have to here back from my counselor which is ok cause I donít do drugs and can pass a drug test unless they lie again I did a clean au yesterday and plan to do one every day. I need help I donít know what to do about getting them back when I asked my caseworker what else do I have to do to get them back the only thing she says is just keep working with us.im losing my patience they have had my kids for 7 months and imp very upset I miss my babies they also took my niece who is 12 from me and put her in a group home. The foster parent she was with was in the wrong not my niece. My childrenís father tried to molest her and now we feel the justice system has failed to do their part. His charges were dropped to child abuse because he accepted a plea bargain he got 3 to 5yrs and he donít have to register as a sex offender and here imp still fighting for my children this is so unfair my kids and I belong together. Dfs are here to get families back together not make it impossible. What can I do about this?

You need to file a grievance with the program director and the local office of Ombudsman. Send tje letter as certified mail. Dont forget to keep copies of them. In the letter explain how/if your cnstitutional/civil rights were violated. Give approx dates anf times you spoke with DFS personell. I dont know your situation. Just keep worling with them and DOCUMENT every phone call and interaction you have with them. It'a only been 6 monthd. Just knoe that they work in 6 month increments when they decide the permanent placement of your children. Good luck

My son and daughter in law are basically going thru the same thing. Their daughter was born Feb. 2011 and has been in the system since them. DFS or who ever wont give her back and find every excuse not to. My son has a mild case of CP and the DFS say hes retarted. He cooks, works, buys things with no problem. At times when they have been scheduled to visitations something seems to come up either with foster parents (who want to adopt her) or DFS and visitation never rescheduled. Now the lawyers want $8,ooo to take this case back to court in June 2013. I feel all the courts and DFS is trying to do is just take the child and give her to whom ever they want. If anyone knows where they might go to get help please let me know. My email is pcjxgma3@gmail.com
So sorry

DFS stepped in a tried to take my children in Rawlins, Wyoming. I GOT THE HECK OUT OF THERE. Then they tore my family apart and now my husband I are getting a divorce and fighting custody for our little son. Read and do your homework on the Rawlins DFS...... They get there rocks off of lieing about drug test, they tried that crap on me..... And other stuff. Be strong, bold, and make sure your heard in every way. I feel for you, I know what your going through! Good luck!

I feel your pain. My son was also taken by dfs because they said we were neglecting him, but he has medical issues. By the grace of God my son is coming home on February 18th but it took us over a year to get him back for something we never did in the first place. So I know how you feel. You definitely need to file a grievance and there are probono lawyers that all they do I'd fight DFS for free if your case qualifies and it sounds like it does. They can not by law just take some ones word for
it they have to prove it. So definitely keep fighting and keep your head up.

I am now in a Dfs case and I'm having a hard time and need some advice because this time They took my kids and the juvenile Dfs case worker is saying that I have not done what they have asked me to. But I have and saying stuff behind my back that ain't true about me at all. And that I have allowed my son to get out. And that's not true cause he sneaks out without me knowing and they think I let him do it. Yes my son is a bit of a bundle sometimes but I takes good care of my children I get things they need I feed them I bath them I do everything possible I can for them and they say I have lack of super vision... I need some advice on how I can turn everything around and have it bite them in the butt. Because I am fighting like hell to get them back and I'm am doing everything they have asked me to. Please let me know on what to do... Those two babies mean the world to me and its already tooken a lot out of me of them not being with me. And it will take a lot more if they keep them from me. Please I'm asking for some advice and help.

I need help getting my kids. I live I billings, MT. My kids are in buffalo, WY. I just found out my kids were taken away from my ex-wife because her and her husband were doing meth the Department of Family Services will not let me have my kids. So I went to the court and they will not let me have my kids. I don't have a whole lot of money for a lawyer. Just because my ex-wife did something wrong I'm not allowed to see my children. I have done nothing wrong. I really think that's very unfair to me and my kids. Does anybody have any suggestions for me? Does anybody know what I can do? Please share this post with everyone so I can find some help.

My daughter is going through this right now and I have even asked to take care of the kids until she is allowed to and so far they are keeping them in a foster shelter and say they are moving them to a foster home this week. Only supervised visits when they allow. There has been no charges, no abuse of any kind. The only complaints were school attendance and grades, need kids and mom in mental health therapy (according to them) and house cleaning needs to be kept up. For this they took them and even myself has only been allowed supv visitation 2hrs and when they say.(only once in over a week). Is there anything else either I should do to get them with me at least, or that she should do to help get her kids home immediately? The people who reported her are an angry unbalanced woman who hates her, and an estranged jealous abusive husband. I am willing to provide kinship guardian but they do not appear to be in favor of me having them, even though they allowed it last fall when reported the first time. Do you know who I would need to apply for that with other than the workers/supervisors on her case? She gets an appointed lawyer now but uneasy about that also. Thank you so much, I hope you can reply soon.

My family is dealing with dfs issues right now. My child got into some trouble and at court dfs took custody of him but allowed him to come home on a ankle monitor and i have been shown nothing but rudeness and disrespect from the lady and at court she made me out to be a mean. Rude.uncooperative person who has made her feel harassed but yet when i went to her office she told me i have not tried contacting her or left messages but now im harassing her and other workers and been rude. But as a mom i dont feel i did anything that another parent wouldn't have done to get there child home and i even apologized to her if i came off rude and said it was not my intentions i was just frusterated and trying to help my child and couldnt get any help or answers but she failed to mention that part in the court room just to make me look bad and asked the judge to keep my son in the states custody and on the monitor until she decides to let him off an for me ordered to be nice to her and do what she asks of me and the judge granted her request and im just blown away how this system operates here and how many families lifes get turned upside down by the same people who are supposd to be all about family and there best interests when in reality there all about distroying families and ripping them apart and proving how much power they have over someone elses family and lifes and 90% of them have no kids and no idea what they would do if they did and were in our shoes but get to call the shots for our families.. First chance my family gets were out of this town and its failed one sided system.
