  • My daughter has been arrested for drugs and she will either go to jail or rehab. How can I get emergency custody of my grandson?

    Michael’s Answer

    Mr. Hampton and Ms. Badeaux are correct. The provisional mandate is simple and inexpensive but may not meet your needs. The clerk of court may have forms for an ex-parte motion for temporary custody but you should hire a custody lawyer because this is serious and difficult procedure.

  • Can Louisiana DCFS remove my daughter with a court order if I was compliant but my car broke down and I missed one appointment/

    Michael’s Answer

    Sounds like you are in a CINC case and the Department is not happy with you. You must get the help of your court appointed attorney, your case worker or the CASA volunteer. This is very hard because CPS does not make it easy. Ultimately it is the judge's call but he will expect you to cooperate with CPS.
