My daughter was in foster care and adopted get custody of her ?

Q: My daughter was in foster care and then adopted but my ACS workers didn't help me and they were fired for other reasons now it's been 5 years I'm clean and stable and I want to try to fight to get custody of her can I do I even have a chance to win

A: David's Answer: Most likely not, unless it was an open adoption or your dispositional order otherwise gave you some rights to petition in the future. The statute the other attorney is talking about most likely won't help in your case, as among other things it requires the agency & the adoptive parent to consent to the relief sought (or withholding their consent unjustifiably) and the child must be 14+ years old and also consents to the relief. That said, for a definitive assessment, consent a Bronx Family Law attorney.
