My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Oklahoma
Two children were taken into DHS custody today due to a questionable mark on 4 year old. There was an accident at home where the Mother struck the 4 year old upside the side of the temple with a medicine measuring device not wanting to cause any harm to the child but it did cause a questionable bruising. Child was taken away from school into DHS custody and the 2 year too. Parents already have a court date and wanting to know what to expect or what documentation to take in order to get the children back. DHS is doing a homevisit on Monday and this is a first time offense. They have already contacted the peditrian and pastor at their church to obtain documents showing there has not been a concern in the past. Wondering if they should hire a lawyer for the court date, bring a grandma with them to court. Really at lost.
