I am sorry to hear what you are going through. What state are the children in? I will check to see what agency you can file a complaint with to investigate your husband's rights to set up visitation with the grandchildren.

Thanks. In that state, when a case manager may be violating someone's rights related to a child in fostercare, you can file a complaint with the Ombudsman's office. This might be the best way to have an outside agency to investigate whether or not the case manager is following proper policy and to also see if there are any alternative methods for the case manager to approve your husband for visits with the children. I would recommend you contact this office tomorrow to file a complaint against the case manager.
