I asked for a Motion for Continuance and a letter and you just gave me an emailed letter that's not even signed.
I told you I want continuance and I want to find a lawyer who is going to represent me. You changed the game plan last minute and called a PD without even talking to me first.
Have you read my post on my blog about "Wenatchee Justice and Judges"? I have valid grounds for change of venue and no one has even TRIED it. I just have my mother claiming you told her it would be impossible. I don't know why it matters because it seems you don't care.
I asked for 2 things: representation at the shelter care hearing, and change of venue. And I asked for basics, like modification of the visitation.
I'm not going to go to court to have a Judge tell me the proceeding has commenced and start demanding tests out of me, on behalf of the state. You didn't help me with anything with visitation, even though I asked for it. Now, CPS has put me on THEIR schedule, not even caring that I want more time with my son, or that I have a job, or anything. You could have helped me with visitation for my son and you didn't.
The least you could have done was help me get modification of visitation. Now I don't have anything.
I am not jumping through their hoops. So I need to know what will happen if I don't show up tomorrow.
I will not be any part of this process until I have an attorney representing me who is experienced in private practice dependency law. I am NOT going to have a court appointed attorney. Period. and I'm not responding to this complaint in Wenatchee. I have consistently expressed my desire for CHANGE OF VENUE.
