Q: My son was removed from my care under suspicious circumstances by ACS. Though I’m the one charged with neglect, they have put him in unsavory situations that he never would have been in had he still been in my care. He was also given Risperdal though I would not give consent. He was supposed to be returned to me a long time ago, but ACS creates different reasons not to return him.
A: David’s Answer: One would need to know the stage of your case, as well as whether you contested the removal by requesting a “1028” hearing. Also, one would need to know the substance of the allegations, as well as the exact reasons why ACS is refusing to return the child.
