I'll try to be brief, my step daughter has recently started seeing her mother again and we go tomorrow to get her complete eval done at a children's psych facility. she has been on risperdal for 4 months which her mother is toatlly against. it was working. C was doing very well but she also hadn't seen ehr mom since christmas due to problems there. well the problems are still there. C came home tonight after the visitation and has a large scratch on her eye and her glasses all bent up because her 4 year old brother beat her up, this happens every time she visits over there. her mother's home also smells of what we aren't sure the grass is unmowed and tehre is poison ivy growing where you have to walk to get back to her door and she has to sleep in her mother's bed because she doesn't have a bed of her own. her mother already has taken us to court and we are in pretrial right now but can not afford an attorney and can not get one appointed because they are baked up. so what do we do? do we bring this up with her doctor? could cps help, we can't even get a gardian ad litem appointed because they to are backed up and we don't have the 1500 to spend. I truely feel that the behaior problems could be more to do with her lifestyle while at her mother's than anything else but how to we go about proving that if it is the case? her parents have paid for her attorney and they have plenty of money to do so, we do not feel we could represent ourselves in court, and though i'm tempted to call cps and jsut ask them i'm not sure what the right thing to do is. please any advice at all would be great.
