parents of 2 girls(they are sisters) signed custody over to the grandmother for one girl and an to an aunt for the other when they were only a few months old.
one girl is now 6 and the other is 5.
In 2003 the father (who is related to the ones that have custody) petitioned the court to relinguish all his parental rights and let them adopt the girls. This never happend because the mother fought it.
At one point during all this ordeal, the mother who I will call Jane, hired a lawyer called Joe, to fight against the father, John.(the parents are now divorced) To get support on a boy that she had custody of at the time. (now the father John has him)
Now the father John has hired the same laywer Joe, to try and get custody of the 2 girls. the mother has had to be at all the hearings that have been held with her new lawyer as well.(she has court ordered visitation with the girls) IS that legal, I always thought that it would be double jeopardy? any advice would be appreciated.
