THIS ONE JUST CAME IN
There are too many loopholes between CPS and the judge's directives. New case? Let's hope this get settled...FAST!
"On February 10, 2010 my niece's son was taken into state custody in Port Townsend. She did not have a hearing until February 18,2010. At the time the judge told CPS to expedite having her son placed with me.
I took custody of him on 02/20/10. We were told we had to have our fingerprints done within 10 days. We went to the Bonney Lake Police department only to learn they couldn't help us. On February 22, I went to the Port Townsend CPS office and was told they had to send off a form and obtain a number before we could make an appointment to have our fingerprints scanned.
On Friday, February 26 at 5:15 pm, I was given the form to have this done. After trying to schedule an appointment, I discovered we didn't have the correct ID number for the Port Townsend office. I finally got the correct information on Saturday, February 27 at 10:00 pm. I was able to schedule an appointment to have our fingerprints done on Wednesday, March 3 at 9:00.
This is a full two days after they are supposed to have the results back in their office. After spending hours trying to find out if the 10 days could be extended, I was told by the supervisor there is a possibility the child could be picked up from
I am very concerned about the way this case is being handled. Is there anything you can do to help?"
