    How can I help?

    So, my sister is involved in drugs really bad. Her two children, my niece and nephew, are almost always with her. Recently, she left the children with a man that is known for violence with weapons. The reason she left the kids with him was so she could go get narcotics, which the man paid for.

    I have a voice recording on my phone that she was explaining what happened, which includes the words, "I went to (place) and got pills".

    I really feel bad for these kids and am not sure what I can do for them. I would really like for them to be placed in protective custody of my family, and a restraining order of some type on my sister.

    You can request a child custody hearing and obtain full custody of the children based on these circumstances.
