Sorry but personal messages must be removed. Apparently there is already a custody order in place. When such an order has been issued by the court it is very difficult to have it overturned, as it is assumed by DHS that the custodial parent has been found acceptable to have the children in their care. One thing that is needed is corroborating testimony to the abuse by someone outside of the family, such as a teacher, minister, doctor and so forth. The testimony of the children will not be of much help (if they are even interviewed) until or unless the case is brought to court. The reason for this is children will generally say whatever they feel the adult who is questioning them wishes to hear especially parents, other family members or persons in authority such as a police officer. Any time a child is taken to a medical facility or doctor and has signs of mistreatment the personnel are required by law to make a report to the police who refer the incident to the state agency of jurisdiction. Contacting the following organizations may provide helpful information and/or assistance. National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-422-4453 or 1-800-252-2873 for National Council on Child Abuse and Family Violence, http:www.nccafv.org Minnesota handles abuse cases through county social services offices not a statewide number. Individual office contact information can be found at http://www.dhs.state.mn.us (click on "county social service agency"). macky83@juno.com
