Case Number: 2020-007893

In Children's Attorneys Project (Abuse/Neglect Cases)

5 year old boy and 1 year old girl came into DFS care on August 2, 2020. Mother has a “stay away” order against natural father to older boy and has sole physical custody of him (as well as defacto custody of baby girl). Mother has invited minor boy’s father to come to the house and care for him and did so while she went out with her sister. When she returned home she poured hot water on father and hit him on top of his head with a metal spatula. Police were called and mother was arrested for domestic violence. Minor boy’s father left with him until the status of the legal orders (he, too, claimed he had court authorized custody of boy).  Minor boy was then removed from his care. Additionally, minor boy’s father acted in a way that raised serious questions about his mental health. The next hearing is a Review Hearing on 1/19/2021 at 3:00 pm in Courtroom 11.
