I have a daughter who is adjudicated delinquent,an a minor in need of intervention. There are several domestic battery charges on her,many of which i am the victim. The only recourse i have had is to do a lock out to keep the violence away from my other younger kids. They have placed her in foster care,unfounded all allegations against me,however continue to resxtrict access (supervised visits,supervised phone calls ) as if im a child abuser! Im the victim of domestic! Many police reports and several court cases.Even though im unfounded they are treating me as if im abuseive.Service plan calls for extensive counseling etc.I have other kids at home who need and deserve my time as well,im at a loss.Everyone advised me to do lockout,judge ,probation,police Now im in a huge messAny advice?They gave me a public defender ,however he is uninterested,and all that does is make it impossible for me to speak in court. Would asking for a writ be appropriate? after all my freedoms are being imposed on,and there is no charge,no allegation ...i dont think dcfs has made ANT reasonable efforts to keep my child with me,because they advised me as well "to just lock her out" well i thought probation would revoke her,not turn and point at me. I have no record,yet its like im on parole!
