Once my dhr case is closed, can I let my husband move back in? He has never been convicted of anything. The only reason dhr is saying anything is BC of some stupid crap that happened when he was 15 that he was never convicted of nor was he found guilty. He has never abused any children and has no history of it. A couple of attorneys have said dhr is overstepping boundaries by saying if my husband doesn't move out, I can't have my kids. I've agreed to do everything else they've asked, but I don't feel as if it's okay or right for them to force me to choose. Obviously if I have to, I'll choose my kids before anybody else, but I'm trying to see what my legal options are and if dhr has in fact overstepped boundaries.
You will need a lawyer to look at all the facts of your case and research the law and statutes. Otherwise, DHR will act and you will have to react. Which will be without your kids.
If the case closes, do not believe for a second they will not be back. And if he is there again, then they will be less cooperative. What brought them out in the first place? How do they know of your husband's juvenile past if he was not convicted?
There is more to this situation than you have actually disclosed in your question. Go see a local attorney that handles cases in the juvenile court, and tell the entire story to counsel. It sounds as if there was a juvenile court case involving a serious offense that your husband was involved in, or the Department suspects drug use or violence. Get some legal advice first. Look before you leap here.
