Here is the case my ex husband filed a protective order on our daughter for our grandaughter whom my daughter and her have been living with me well at that hearing my daughter was picked up on a capias she had from a missd court date anyway there were no evidence of abuse or neglect of abuse however while my daughter was in jail my grandaughter needed a guardian which i thought i could get considering my daugter wanted me to and this was there home but my ex husband also asked for guardianship anyway everything went up in the air once my daughter accused him of being a drug addict so then the judge motioned an emergency protective order for my grandaughter until we get a circuit court hearing but her ruling made no sence considering she let the grandaughter go back with my ex husband and now every judge is denying the case because my ex was a baliff but i feel like this judge who gave him our grandaughter was bias because she also knew of him how can someone being accused gain temporary guardian of my grandaughter she should have been released to me
Short of telling you that all you can do is make your best case that the best interests of the child are served by being with you, and that you have the problem of likely being saddled with your daughter's problems since you all lived together, I would highly recommend getting an attorney, as this case is way too complicated to give any kind of detailed advice here. Proving bias in a judge is difficult.
TO ALL QUESTIONERS: I provide this answer in an effort to assist and guide. The answers are qualified further by you providing the full and complete facts and background or not, and by the space limitations of this forum. The answer does not serve as a substitute for a live sit-down with an attorney. In no way is any answer to be construed as a formal giving of legal advice nor is an attorney-client relationship formed. You are not permitted to quote or refer to answers given in any court pleading or hearing. TO QUESTIONERS FROM WV & NY: Although I am licensed to practice in your state (in WV, on inactive status as of 9/13), be advised that I practice on a day-to-day basis in Massachusetts. I answer questions in your state in areas of the law in which I practice, and in which I feel comfortable trying to offer you assistance based on my knowledge of specific statutes in your state and/or general principles applicable in all states. Being licensed to practice there, does not confer detailed knowledge of local procedures and practices which comes from day-to-day work. It is always best, however, to work with attorneys and court personnel in your own area to deal with specific problems and factual situations.
