Ok update. we found out the mother of the 3 kids is living in a motel/hotel with this drug dealer guy. a family member spotted the children and said they "were dirty and messy with food on there faces, the 2 girls hair was knotted and filthy, the little boy(my son) is sick and has a bad runny nose" the mother was stuttering really bad and acting paranoid and she was with her mom who was smacking her around and beating her in public. (seen at a walmart) my aunt(the GM) is trying to get custody of the 3 kids but a judge said theres no need for a emergency custody change (idk what its called) last week. we got this information today. i called the place she is staying they have no kitchen nor proper ways to feed the children. she has no job and her state benefits run out next tuesday as far as i know. at this point is there anything i or my aunt can do to speed up or get emergency custody of the kids? also a sidenote. i really appreciate everyone telling me advice. im new to this whole fiasco and im seeking help from everywhere. also if/when we get full custody of the kids can the judge grant a no contact order or is that automatically instated?
