Generally speaking you are able to appeal juvenile court determinations to the Georgia Appellate Courts. However, Georgia law says that "a trial court's determination that placement with a relative is not in the best interest of the child will not be disturbed" by Georgia Appellate courts absent an abuse of discretion. Juvenile Courts are afforded a wide discretion to determine whether a child should be place with relative. Juvenile Courts consider whether the placement is suitable, appropriate and in the child's best interest. I say that to say, it is a difficult task to accomplish. You need to retain counsel so that they may review the Courts bases for finding that placement with you is not into child's best interest and if an appeal from that ruling is appropriate. Do this immediately as the appeal process can be extremely time sensitive.
