Confused What are the qualifications of an unfit mother in NY?

What are the qualifications of an unfit mother in the eyes of the state, preferably New York.

What if the school has called on this person several times and this person has many opened cases with child services?

At what ends can someone go to get children removed from their mother because she is unfit?

It all depends upon the whim of the judge, and it is a long and difficult process.

Well original poster, are you a blood relative? Preferrably the father?

You need an attorney and need to file for custody if the attorney thinks you have enough proof.

Is the father in the picture? Family? Are they aware? Do they care? Maybe you need to check with someone. Don't expect to be welcomed with open arms if you express your concerns...just express your concern about the children and think maybe they could help the mom. Don't say she's horrible and shouldn't have them or you'll likely get turned away. Offer basic facts - ONLY if asked.

The only other thing you can do is if you witness neglect or abuse is report it. Childrens services are notoriously overwhelmed....and slow to act. Sometimes acting on petty cases and ignoring the more serious.
