... due to DYFUS stepping in and removing their son because of drug use and as a result neglect. After both my daughter and son in law came off the drugs they returned to court to regain custody of their son in the meantime my daughter got pregnant with another child. When they went to court for the hearing they were both tested and found to be clean of any drugs. But, the court mandated that my daughter take methadone during her pregnancy she has since had the child and is now I understand on 200mg/day How can the state mandate this and why haven,t they begun to get her off the drug
Wow the court ordered her to take methadone during her pregnancy you know had something gone wrong with the baby you could sue the hell out of the system. God i just think thats wrong cause methadone is still an opiate so they pretty much ordered her to take drugs during her pregnancy. She definantly needs to look in on how they are going to help her to get off the drug they put her on. I just cant believe they did that to her where on earth do yall live?
Something doesn't sound right. Why would the court put you daughter on methadone during pregnancy if she were clean of any drugs? They must have weened the baby off the methadone when he/she was born, why didn't they ween mom off at the same time? Something isn't adding up. Are you positive you have all the information? There isn't a possibility your daughter MAY have tested dirty as that would explain the methadone during pregnancy? Courts don't normally order methadone treatment during pregnancy without valid reasons. They would only be opening themselves up for a law suit. Please don't take offence to my questions. It just doesn't make sense to me. So to answer your question, no. A court can not mandate anyone to take methadone during pregnancy without valid reason.
Were you in court with your daughter? Did you hear the testimony yourself? If not, I would request a copy of the transcript and see exactly what was said that would compel the courts to issue such an order.
My best wishes and hope your grand child is doing well!
