Hello,
I don't even know where to start. I am being investagated by child protective services b/c of my husband. He doesn't even live here any more. My son got a black eye when he was playing the other day, and someone from his school call them. Well, when they talked to my son, my husbands alcoholism, and verbal abuse came out. They came to talk to me yestersay, and are going to talk to my daughter today. The social worker told me I needed to keep him out of the house completely, because if they are called again, for any reason, they will go straight to the DA for a petition from the judge to have the children removed from the home. My husband thinks it is BS, and said he'll come home anytime he wants, and they can F--- off. We are not divorced, and I have no money at the moment to even hire an attorney. I am scared, and don't know what to do.

There must be a way you can find help through the system- perhaps talk to the social worker about the situation and tell her what he is saying, and about your financial position. They are there to do what is best for your children, and should provide to you all the necessary resources to help you keep him away. Or, find another place to go where he can't get to you...safehouse, family/friends. Whatever it takes to keep your kids. The last thing they need is to be put into the system because of him.

STAND YOU GROUND withyour Husband!! ANd make sure your living environment is CLean, and organized. MY husbands ex has DCF called on her becasue of her drug use, andalcoholism, and she was COCKED when the Social worker came to the house.. My husband was standing behind her, Hoping that the worker would see it, becasue it is obvious to him, and she gave them a line of BS, and nothing ever happenend. In my state every call warrants a visit from a "worker" but there is usually no follow up, unfortunatly... His ex's house was immaculate, (she cleans when she drinks) and she was physically abusive to my husband. And In speaking with my step son just last week (now &years old) she still gets that drunk and hits her present husband, and it wakes Up My step son and scares him. he already suffers from anxiety, and has learning disabilitiesIt breaks my heart ot bring him home... anyway, thats my story, not yours, I know... But IF there is nothing going on in your home , then I dont see how or what hey can really do.

Torn....

You go directly to the courthouse. You file a petition for an order of protection so he legally cannot come near you, the children or the house.

This does not cost a penny and they have counselors there to help you with the paperwork and you can appear before the judge right then and there.

It's very easy, find the information desk when you get to the courthouse, tell them you need to get an order of protection and they will tell you exactly who to talk to.

If this doesn't work, go to the police station and let them know what is going on. Then, each and every time he shows up or says he is going to show up you call the police and say he is not allowed there.

This way, if DCFS comes back to the house you can show that you've done everything you can to keep him away. Ask for their assistance too! Ask them where to get help, ask for their help so they can see that you are serious about keeping your children safe!!!

If it's a matter of losing your children DO IT NOW!!!!

Do you have a Legal Aid service in your town, sometimes you can call them and they will give you legal advice over the phone for free, and also, some atorneys do Pro Bono work..free. Also, Attorney.com on the intranet...look into that as well.
Good luck to you, I know this is heart wrenching for you.
