Need advice. Moving to another state with foster kids.
Oh my that just sounds like such a painful set of circumstances.
So I am wondering if there are two possible angles---the social worker told you to move forward? Have you spoken with him/her again, as well as the district director? Perhaps they could figure out a way to get the matter before a judge again --without pissing them off, just factually how to get this considered again, and/or expedited back into resolution?
Did the children ever have a guardian ad litem and/or attorney of their own. Since as you say, this scenario isn't in their best interest, their attorney could get it back before the judge?
i'll keep thinking and hopefully others with experience like this will be here soon.
