  1. You might. Your best bet is to hire a family law attorney in your area, and let him get all the facts and assemble all the evidence and he can advise you on how to proceed.

    Good luck.


  2. It depends on my factors that are no fully explained in your initial post. When dealing with any custody case, the court looks to determine what is in the best interests of the child. You should consult with an attorney prior to filing for modification of the present order. Feel free to contact me for a free initial consultation at 610-446-0690.

  3. If your daughter is in foster care that means that you already had or will very shortly have a hearing regarding that placement. You can bring an attorney with you to that hearing, or you will be appointed an attorney. There are many factors that are not explained here. Such as how long she has been in foster care, if she has already been found dependent, if you have already received the documents outlining what steps you need to take in order to get your daughter.
