My step-daughter has been temporarily placed in our care (without court involvement) by CPS/DSHS because of unsafe/unhealthy living conditions in her mother's home due to hoarding. We have basically been entrusted with the care of my step-daughter until her mother cleans up her home. Her mother has been placed on a "program" where they will do random checks for cleanliness. We would at the very least like to gain temporary custody of my step-daughter until her mother "graduates" from this program. What evidence do we need to show the court, to rule in our favor? We tried to gain temporary custody several months ago but were rebuked by the court facilitator because in their words "This county NEVER removes children from their mothers unless it is physical abuse." Any advice would help.
