Las Vegas CPS Takes Child & Denies Father Due Process
I was working in Las Vegas, Nevada a year and a half ago. I had full custody of my 14 year old son and lived in a weekly apartment since I travel with the solar fields around the country and live a pretty productive life.
Well me and my current girlfriend got into a heated argument, police were involved, said I hit her even though I did not and they took me to jail.
A few days later the case was dismissed.
The problem is DHS had my son. The caseworker actually wrote a report with false statements I supposedly admitted to her, which again, I did not, why would I.
My son was just student of the month at his school. Why would they take him?
My girlfriend and I both took not only drug tests but actual hair follicle tests. Crystal clean. I had been clean for years. (yes I had prior cases, one from 9 years ago where I got custody of my son and a more recent one where he was with his mom and he got taken and pretty much, given right to me once I was notified which was all months prior to this I had given him to his mom under free will for a short time to take care of some private matters.)
I was currently in a lay-off as solar fields usually go for a few months and then the next one worthwhile will kick off a few months later so I drove for Lyft. The judge insisted I was unemployed. I tried to tell her the charge was dismissed, it never happened, it didn’t matter.
The hair follicle test was clean, it didn’t matter. My first lawyer quit due to becoming a judge. Great. The next lawyer quit 2 hearings in due to me telling her she wasn’t doing her job and representing me. She would not say anything relevant or helpful in court and did nothing for me. The judge appointed a new lawyer I didn’t even get the chance to speak to or call me back. She quit! They won’t put in an ICPC, my trial was sabotaged, I’m denied a court-appointed lawyer, they didn’t have proper jurisdiction over him in the first place and I’ve been drowning for the past 5 hearings with no one to listen to it.
I’m up to losing my son in August and I know for a fact my rights are violated. They have denied me visits and phone calls, nothing is private if I do get to speak to him and now he started cutting himself in DHS begging to see me and they are trying to blame it on me. I don’t know where to turn.
Our kids are suffering and no one cares. Thanks for accepting. You are truly an inspiration.
