It sounds like Child Protection and social services may be involved in the case which means that you will want to contact an attorney with the specifics of your situation so he/she can get more information and advise you properly.
The first answer is correct, hire a family law attorney to investigate. Looks like social services may already be involved and the first hearing is in CHIPS court. Contact an attorney right away.

I suggest you hire a family law attorney who can investigate the status of any hearing and better advise you on how to participate. If DCF is involved, they may wish you to testify.
