    Answered . You will need to talk to the attorney on your Dependency case. An attorney on this site cannot give you an answer to a question like this. An attorney would have to read all the reports from your CPS - Dependency case and then ask you a bunch of questions to help you draft a 388 motion to modify a court order.

    You need a change of circumstance and to show it is in the best interest of the child to change a court order.

    Your services have been terminated and the child is with her father - unless he gives up his paretnal rights - why are you even thinking about adoption? That doesn;t happen unless there is no parent to reunify. In your case, the father has reunified.

    Talk to your attorney or hire a new one who handles Dependency cases.
