It has been awhile since I've been here but I have some questions I think some of you might have some insight to. This is one of my first threads here and it has a lot of information on Post 22 if you want to refresh your memory: http://www.conductdisorders.com/forum/showthread.php?p=93031#post93031 Catch up to date here: difficult child is now almost 17 and we ended up going through with CHIPS(not JIPS) and he was taken out of our house the last week of June 2008. He has since been kicked out of several group homes for running away and then finally placed in TFC(which was a JOKE) and then another felony this past august and then off to Mental Health Hospital and now FINALLY Residential Treatment Center (RTC) and we have Wraparound Service involved now with the goal of bringing him home. He has made some great changes(motivated by seeing a friend get shot and killed SIGH) and I am cautiously optimistic about him coming home. Anywhoo, just last week we got a letter and we are being sued by the State of Wisconsin for support and mainentance of JB......What? Can they do this? Is it legal considering the diagnosis's? Anyone have any thoughts on this?
