A mother has joint custody over three children due to a clerical error (judge awarded full custody of two children to father and joint custody of the third.) Recently we've discovered that the mother has been supplying marijuana to the 12 year old. Right now the courts are closed due to covid-19. Is there anything we can do to get the children out of the home?

While there may be no direct access to public buildings, the courts in CA county are struggling to find a way to allow for access for filing pleadings and emergency requests. Please discuss the current local rules with an experienced family law attorney in your jurisdiction.
With that being said, furnishing controlled substances to a minor is not only detrimental to the child but can be a criminal offense. You may wish to consider contacting child protective services in your area.
