HI,
My friend is in a custady war with the father of her son he turned 1 on 1/7/11. the child lives in an old home that is in need of repaires built in 1930. she is worried about the fact that he has not taken him to get the blood test yet . he said he would take him last month but still has not done so. she does not have any way to take him herself untill after court. My question is what if any complications could happen to her son if he does have high levals of lead and he is not tested, and not treated.
CPS was/is involved and they say that they can not make the father take the baby for his test because it is not putting the baby in immediate danger or jeopardizing his well being
she is worried for her sons health and at her wits end.
thanks
