My question involves grandparents rights in the State of Nevada:
I am a grandparent living in Illinois. I have 2 grandchildren in Nevada that were placed in foster care in August by Child Protective Services due to false allegations against the father made by the Mom. Mom has now changed her story and dropped the TPO, this is the second time she has done this. I have talked with the CPS caseworker and let her know that I would like to have my grandchildren instead of having them in foster care. I have the couples older child, whom I adopted when he was an infant because of the parents being irresponsible like they are now. Is it possible for me to get my grandchildren instead of having them in foster care? Mom has been kicked out of a shelter and has no place to go, Dad is a heavy drinker and they are not ready to take care of their children. What are my rights?
