Please allow me explain the REASON for the law book.
As we have seen in the many examples of our fellow foster parents who have followed our methods of preparations in laying out their cases in what we describe on this group as our "LAW BOOKS" time and time again. We are to be ready to give an answer...that means that if we are asked a question in a courtroom setting we can simply _*turn to that month, that week, that day in our law books and *__*bingo we have the answer to the question that has just been asked of us*_. The organization is impressive to anyone who witnesses it, I myself have witnessed this mouth dropping event in a court of law.
Don't know if any of them are willing to share their own experiences with the LAW BOOK with us but I'm sure everyone would like to hear their stories on how being prepared helped with their cases.
No one expects a lowly, uneducated foster parent to be able to defend themselves with such precise expertise and detail that any attorney would envy. This method has been proven time and time again as effective and impressive. If you follow it you will indeed be ready to give an answer as the Bible clearly tells us. You are in essence learning how to prepare not only your own case but to assist in helping other foster parents prepare their own cases. Your attorney will appreciate your intense organization and your work a great deal and the preparation that you do will one day come in handy, if not now in the future you will be happy you have already taken these steps.
Do it now while things are fresh in your memory.
The first thing you do is purchase a 4" loose leaf notebook.
On our NFPCAR Website, there are two webpages to start your search:
  1. Directors and References for your State Index
  2. To organize your main points, here is download to a word processing file>> 5 Level Outline Template. Basic instructions on using an outline are on the template.
Go to your state.
There you will find the Foster Parent and Agency Policies & STATUTES for your state. You can either Download them to your PC. Or just print off or save only the ones pertaining to foster parents, place them into your law book.
The second thing you want to place in your law book is a copy of the investigative report, after you have gone through it with a fine tooth comb. This of course is after your attorney has obtained it. Highlight each and every word that you disagree with, everything that is an untruth, a lie, a stretch of the truth.
Then go back and gather proof of each and everything that you have highlighted to prove what you are saying is truth and that what is being said in this report is lies.

The Third thing you need in your law book is copies of your journal and dividers for months. Get the kind that has
pockets in the front of them for receipts. Divide the receipts into envelopes *one for each week in that month*. Paper clip each day together and place it into that weeks envelope. Make a list of each weeks receipts on separate sheet of paper and place them behind the pocket. Put the dates that it covers on the envelope in the pocket and the sheet of paper so that you can turn to that month and at a glance see your entire schedule for that week. Recreating your days at a glance through your receipts, check stubs, ATM receipts, etc.
I know that this is a lot of work but trust me when I say that someday you will be glad that you have taken the time to do this, and so will your attorney. Who knows that little foster daughter or foster son may someday return to you and want to sue CPS for damages that they have endured throughout their life and you will have the evidence for them to do so, keep this law book for them, tell your attorney you want this evidence back to keep for them for future use.
  • Remember, what Social workers **say is **automatically believed while whatever we as foster parents say must be backed up with documentation, WE MUST PROVE what we say is true.
  • You must be able to prove what you say is TRUTH without a shadow of a doubt. Doctors receipts, cash register receipts to re-create your day if need be. to offer proof of your whereabouts if need be. ie: a receipt that shows you were at the dry cleaners at 4:47 pm on Jan. 14th,2007 another receipt proves that you were then at Domino's Pizza picking up the pizza for a pizza party at your home at 5:23pm on Jan. 14th, 2007 then home for the party by 6:00 pm and there until 9:00 pm with your husband and 17 other children and their parents. Not in the parking lot of CVS at Gateway Mall, in Sparks Nevada, spanking Johnny at 6pm as was reported by an anonymous caller.
  • Think this allegation is going to go away? You get the idea? This is the importance of documentation and your "LAW BOOK". If you were in the courtroom and the investigation reported this incident as founded do you think that your receipts would prove otherwise? Of course your Law book would save the day.
  • So in summary,  Chapter 6 from Standing in the Shadow of the Law for Creating your own Law Book.
Here are a few suggestions.
  1. Start a support group....invite these people to join our Foster Parent Allegations Group....we are here to support anyone who needs our help....
  2. Set up a corner of your home as a resource center library for the use of this support group.
  3. As in our Foster Parent Allegations Yahoo  group, it helps you put together your LAW BOOK; and you can share it with others in your own little support group.
  4. Take up a collection within your little group and order a copy of the National Foster Parents Legal Manual that they produced, it contains valuable information that all foster parents should be aware of. This could be made available in your support group resource center corner too.
  5. Consider This
    A. Allegations the Storm that no One tells you is coming.
    B. Documentation, Just How Important is it?
    C. Administrative Law. Are you familiar with them in Your State?
  6. We will also send you FREE BROCHURES on our Foster Parents Legal Program. *IT IS OUR program,* and are the National Administrators for the program. PPL Underwrites it for us. Write to me privately and I will answer your questions. or Just call the office toll free at 1-877-FPA-CHILD (372-2445)
