Back in February of last year I was in a car wreck and rushed to the Cullman ER. I tested positive for multiple substances upon being drugged by my friends boyfriend. My son was not with me at the time of the wreck they got my test results with out my consent nor without a court order. My son who is fixing to be 3 has been in an out of home safety plan for over a year now. I have done everything that has been asked of me and still they refuse to give my son back. I have passed every drug screen and hair follicle test. Someone please I'm begging you to help me.
First, this isn't a DUI question. Second, you'll need to hire an attorney, period.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
There are few "pro bono" lawyers out there - every lawyer in private practice has to pay bills and pay for office overhead, as well as earn a decent living. In highly unusual cases, a lawyer may volunteer his or her time in the interests of justice. However, simply representing potential clients for free will not pay the bills.
The Alabama State Bar may be able to assist with the 'Volunteer Lawyer Program' (VPL). These are public interest lawyers, often law school instructors or non-practicing lawyers, that are willing to assist in certain instances. Contact the Alabama State Bar at: (334) 269-1515 and ask for the Volunteer Lawyer Program.
This is really a juvenile litigation matter. Assuming your facts to be correct, then an attorney would need to file a motion to return custody to the mother. Of course, DHR will oppose your motion, but you will get a hearing before the Court.
