Social services obtained...
....A VERBAL ORDER (?!?!???) from the court to take the woman’s children into state custody
.... pending a full investigation.

Where is the greater context of the 4th Amendment....
....If you can't be served /review/ contest a written warrant or complaint...


I can see a well-prepared parent/ family choosing to defend their home, their rights, and THEIR CHILD against this type of seizure on "verbal court order"....

FR Legal Eagles.... please enlighten & advise...


Just wonderin'

Listen, it is bad, very bad. When the social workers from children’s services come to take the kids, the kids are screaming, the parents are crying, and the worst part is that the kids can easily end up in foster care that is abusive. If there is a family friend or grandparent that can get there asap, children’s services may do a kinship placement. Then there is a 72 hour meeting, then there is a hearing a “protective custody” hearing where often the legal custody of the children is transferred to the state for “appropriate placement” It is all very quick and technical and you have to get an attorney that is familiar with it or you may be in deep trouble.

The parent then has to do EVERYTHING the social services agency demands, whether it is a hair test for drug use, a psychological evaluation (which you can easily pass if you act calm and not emotional), “parenting” classes, intensive in home services, nutrition classes, and show up to all your court dates, act calm.

Always let the social services into your house, which should have a bed for every child, (even if you do the family bed thing) tons of food in the cupboards and fridge, toys, books, tables, paper and colored pencils, you get the drift.

The house has to have running utilities, clean sheets and pillows, no dog poop on the floor, no evidence of illegal drug use and be reasonably neat and clean.

once all this is checked out, you will be on your way shortly.
