Default How do we let the judge know without jeopardizing our position with him?

I wrote a letter to the judge in this case giving him information that if the child in this case was taken out of state, he could/would be in tremendous distress. After he read it, he said it should be put into record. Attorney for DCF said it was third party information. Judge explained all info submitted was from SCC, a Dr.'s letter and Facebook profiles taken by DCF. Then the attorney stated the child had already been taken out of state. The child had recently been flown back to Florida. They are not going to tell the judge that exactly what was said would happen, did. How do we let the judge know without jeopardizing our position with him. No money for counsel.

What kind of distress are we talking about? As for letting the judge know, then someone who is a position to know the details needs to contact the courts and the child's representative to let them know. Perhaps you should check to see if there is a Friend of the Court office that handles cases out of that courthouse or jurisdiction - they could definitely submit the information to court.

I wish to inform you that you can provide information to judge through written submissions being given during hearing. In this regard during hearing you can inform judge that you wish to submit your arguments and request that judge accept your written document. Alternatively you can file an affidavit mentioning all the facts and request for submission either before hearing or during hearing. Once document become part of your court case then judge will generally have to consider those facts. You can also contact clerk of court for submissions.

DCF evaluation revealed physical abuse by mother and her boyfriend. He has night terrors (have found him under furniture in his room) that leave him exhausted. Dr. diagnosis was PTSD. DCF still had no reservations to returning him to the same situation.
