I left an abusive relationship and the father called CPS with false allegations. CPS forced me to take my son to his fathers house where he then beat me up on the first visit. Cps took my child without a warrent or court order, then took my second child from the hospital when she was born. I was threatened and coerced into signing off my rights and I want my children back. I've been searching for help for a couple years now and I can't find one person who will help me. My children were never abused or neglected.
Attorneys cannot work for free. Will you? You can seek a pro bono agency but most likely you will have to hire and pay an attorney. Give the fact you signed off your rights your chances of prevailing are not good.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please call with more details, and for an appointment. My PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. It is based on such limited information that it is a general answer, and should not be relied upon as a reason for your action or inaction. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship and such may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will generally require payment for our services, as this is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
I agree that this is a situation where you will probably not find an attorney to work for free. If an attorney tells you that you have a case worth pursuing, I would suggest contacting family and friends to see if they can help you pay the attorney's retainer and fees.
This answer is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. It is meant to give the questioner some general information regarding their question and the questioner should follow up by consulting with an attorney.
