    Post Need help kids in foster care.

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas and Nevada

    My boyfriends kids are in foster care in Nevada. He lives in Texas. The mother took off when he tried to file for custody in Texas and moved to Nevada. She was pregant with his daughter at the time and took his son. In January the state of Nevada removed the kids from the mother and he finally found out where they were. He has been fighting with the state for the last 10 months to get the kids. The state says mom will never be able to have the kids on her own but feel they haven't exhausted all services to mom. They want to find her someone to basically parent her while she parents the kids.

    Boyfriend and her were never married but he is the kids legal father. We are stuck at this point on where to go. He was told to file for custody and then they wouldn't have a choice to give him the kids but we aren't sure where to file in Texas or Nevada?

    You stated that dad filed before. Are there any existing orders? If not, dad needs to file in Nevada.

    Even if there are existing orders in Texas, Dad needs to file in NEvada anyway because the juvenile court system in that state is involved and because the STATE of Nevada is actually a party if the children are in Foster care.
    Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
    Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

    I've removed the knife from my back, polished it, and will one day return it -- long after you think I have forgotten.
