Open DCFS case in Lancaster, CA I do have court appointed lawyer. This case has been going on over 3 yrs. My daughter is 5. Just cause the SW and I don’t get along I feel she is biased in this case. In the beginning my mom stepped up to get my child, I no longer want her to have anything to do with my daughter, she is a prostitute. Around different men all the time. The SW is still allowing her visits on ICPC cause she lives in AZ. They are trying to terminate my rights, don’t i have choices in with whom my daughter can go to if I cannot reunify ? I’ve been fighting to keep my daughter I have two other kids that are not on this case, I don’t want to loose my daughter! How is it possible for my mom to get her and I’m saying NO? My daughter is even telling her attorney& SW she doesn’t want to go with her grandma. Can I say so?
If my rights are terminated, I don’t get to interact or have anything to do with my daughter ever? My mom and I don’t get along all she wants is money. She can’t get approved in CA so she moved to AZ. How is this possible?
In this situation the court (judge) will determine the placement.
