The mother is in AZ, has been diagnosed as aggressive bi-polar, have had DCSS cases filed against her, and is abusive to the kids. If my daughter goes back she will be placed in AZ protective custody because the mother accused my 10 yr old of sexually touching her 3 yr old sister. The mother planned to send my daughter to live with her sister, (an aunt in VA) that is why the grandmother picked up my daughter from her mother in AZ and brought her to CA. I do not want her in that environment or in VA. I have been served paperwork but there is no court date or court phone number to contact AZ courts. I was told to seek legal advice because my emergency custody order was dropped by the courts in CA because the mother refused to accept registered mail.
CA likely dropped the matter because it has no jurisdiction over the child. You should consult with an Arizona attorney.
