Me and my husband got into some problems for drugs 2 1/2 years ago. At the time they charged us with child neglect but they have since been dropped. We went to DHS 2 days ago and they said that they closed the case a couple of months ago. But neither me nor my mom was contacted. We didn't know until we went up there 2 days ago. That's all the lady told us except that she would make a court hearing with the judge so we can get the paper showing that I have custody. We just got our own place(we were living with my mom, with 5 kids) but my mom is saying that we can't take our kids with us because she has custody. She doesn't know that for sure she just assumes. But the case is CLOSED! Please somebody help me! LEAVING MY KIDS IS NOT AN OPTION FOR ME!! We have been straight for 2 1/2 years.
