I'm having a lot of trouble. We are finalizing in the state our son was born in, because it was supposed to be quicker and easier. We were required to complete 3 post placement visits, which we did. That was how my agency was involved, and the rest was supposed to be handled by my attorney.
I don't know what is going on, but I can hardly get in touch with my attorney and his assistant for information.
I called and was told that the TPR hearing was that day, and they were just waiting for the post placement homestudy report. Then, about 3 weeks ago I asked for an update, and the assistant told me the attorney was going to the TPR hearing later that week. I asked why since it had already happened, and she said "the Judge assigned to your case was not familiar with this type of proceeding" and he wanted to review it with other judges and reschedule.
Well the day that he was supposed to return to court, the attorney had a family emergency and couldn't go. He phoned in for the hearing, but the judge told him he wanted him there in person with the files and to reschedule again.That is the last we heard, 3 weeks ago. I called and the number is now a wrong number...? and no response by email.
I'm contacting my agency, but besides them, would it be better to contact my state or the "sending state" for help?
I was hooked up with the attorney through a facilitator. When matched, I looked him up online and read a bunch of negative reviews, but I didn't want to turn down the situation because of that. It has led me to be the mommy of the most wonderful little boy, but honestly, this guy shouldn't be in business....
