Q: The judge said that he was going to find me guilty no matter what and the second lawyer I had said to take the guilty plea because she can do nothing to help me.under all the stress that i was put through by them i pleaded guilty under the stress.now the fourth lawyer I have helped me to get some of the evidence I needed to prove the neglect charges are false ,that only my lawyer could get, I got the rest on my own.my first child was taken at birth.my second child was also taken at birth because my first child is in foster care and because I didn’t finish all my mandated programs but I finished them all before the termination of parental rights case was started for my second child. Then my third child was taken two weeks after he was born because of the same reasons but he was given back. They don’t want to give me back my other two children.my children were born December 2012, July 2014,December 2015.
A: David’s Answer: It’s impossible to assess online whether the charges were false – and therefore what chances you have in getting your 2 children back. Usually if 1 child is in foster care & another is born, they treat that child as “derivatively neglected.” Whether they have a good case – or whether you have a solid defense – would depend on an evaluation of the evidence. Thus, you may call a Bronx Family Law attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
