You can always fire your attorney and hire another one.
Providing general answers are meant to help the poster to understand some complex legal concepts and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship.
If you have the funds to retain your private attorney then you may fire your former attorney and hire a new attorney. Your case is complicated like all juvenile matters - it depends on the facts. Why were your children displaced? Who are the relative resources? Where is the father and what contributions has he made? What is your relation with your mother-in-law. In addition, DHR is obligated to have ISP which are individualized service plans for each child taken into care. You need to attend those meetings to get your children back. Work with your attorney to achieve that goal.
