You should contact an attorney as soon as possible to help you sort out this mess. Were you with your daughter when she was removed from your custody by DCFS? What did they say when they took her? When you meet with an attorney, you should bring all papers that were given to you.

Whether or not you have a criminal history is irrelevant. If you are exposing your daughter to dangerous situations, DCFS can remove your child. You will be appointed an attorney to represent you at your first Juvenile Court hearing. You don't want to miss this hearing if you want to try to get your daughter back immediately. You also have the right to hire your own attorney. There is good information about the Juvenile Dependency process at the CA Courts website.
