How do you fight for custody and visitations when you can't afford a lawyer and Legal Aid has turned you down? I have also tried to get a child advocate from the state but since they have closed my case with them I can not get a CASA! I also tried the Public Defenders Office, They say that they don't handle just family law cases anymore unless someone is either threaten with jail time or has been incarcerated. It's so frustrating trying to protect my niece when I don't have money out the yeng yang to pay some one to defend me.
BIO MOM has continued to abuse the child by taking off HER BRACES AFTER SURGERY, not feeding her, breaking her glasses and removing the new ones, she takes off the child's DAFOs and put them back on the wrong feet. The child has cluster seizures when she's around because mom spanked her and put her in dark rooms alone for hours and the stupid thing even said that she put the 2 1/2 year old severely disabled child in "Time OUT" WTF! She refused to give the child her medications for at least 1 1/2 years before I got custody of her. She is not going to take off so much as a shoe or it's going to be on!!!!
I just don't see why THE MAGISTRATE doesn't get it, especially when she said that she is willing to send the child to a foster home!
Limea makes my day!Gloria
