Etowah county dhr was sent to my house. Claiming child abuse and neglect. According to the report, my children were made to do everything and I barely fed them, etc etc. I let her in not knowing I Could say no at the time. My house was messy(lived in) but not a disaster and disgusting as her reports made. She keeps throwing mental disorders as the reason my house is a mess. I have an 8 yr old and 6 yr old.
Ive had them called before, but for fake drug charges. (Tested clean btw) said shes turning case over to services. But has yet to even make a meeting. Or contact me at all. My kids are now quarantined away at my grandparents. My house is clean, what can I do to get my kids back?
You will need to hire the best lawyer you can afford. You waived many of your rights by entering a safety plan. Do not try to deal with DHR without the assistance of counsel. I wish you the best.
