I gave my mom temporary guardianship so I can get stable and clean. I have 8 yrs clean now. I have a home and custody of 4 kids out of 6. She is asking for 1000.00 and 30 days in jail because she found marijuana in my daughters room. I had a chemical imbalance that was also a drug overdose. I got that corrected. I have no visits unless she is there even though I was granted custody with no restrictions. She has told the courts I lied about being clean when I openly said I was at pain clinic. She blames me for it all. What to do now? Commissioners wont listen to my side.
You will need to get with an experienced and aggressive family law attorney who has handled custody modification. I know what these cases are like having handled a number. Please understand that this site does not allow us to recommend any attorney or firm, you need to do your own research. Check around, you should be able to get in with an attorney within the next couple of days (after the weekend).
