What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Polk County Florida.
Hey thanks for taking the time to look through my thread and answering a couple questions I have. Recently my girlfriends sister had DCF called on them for drug use. Since they had a 5 year old in the house, her sister and girls grandmother both had to go to the courthouse for a drug screen. Well since the drug screen came back positive, dcf put her in the custody of us. Actually my girlfriend. We'll have custody for 6-9 months or until the mother completes the steps that dcf wants her to complete to get her kid back.
Fast Forward to 5 min ago. I received a call from the case worker telling me that both me and my gf are going to have to go tomorrow and get drug screened. I asked her why all of a sudden we were required to do that, and she said because I said so and thats the conditions. I explained to her that I have never touched a drug in my life and it seemed like she didnt even believe me. Anyway I feel kinda insulted. She then goes on to say this case has nothing to do with me since the child will be in the custody of my gf. I said, since you want me to take a drug test it does have something to do with me. Prior to our argument I informed her that I have to work tomorrow. And told her I just started my new job yesterday, and there is no way I can come in. But I could come in 1st thing Thursday. She said that would not be a option. That If both me and my gf were not in there tomorrow, then the child would be removed. So what can I do about this. There is no court order for a drug test. And she just popped this on me today. Its not like she told me last week to be in on the 1st. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.
