Brooke Mueller

You'll Get Your Kids Back

IF ...

EXCLUSIVE

0718-brooke-mueller-tmzBrooke Mueller will get custody of her twins back over the next year, sources tell TMZ -- but ONLY if she does 5 things right.

Sources connected to the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services tell us -- officials have agreed to go back to the judge in 6 to 12 months and recommend that at least some of Brooke's custodial right be reinstated, but before they do that ... Brooke must prove to them she's a fit, clean-and-sober parent.

The first condition is that Brooke -- who's currently in a live-in rehab facility -- consistently attends AA and NA.  She must also obey all of her doctor's orders and show she can handle the stresses of everyday life without relapsing.  She's also supposed to maintain a good relationship with the kids-- for the time being via skype.  In all, we're told there are 5 specific strings attached.

We're told DCFS officials will monitor Brooke closely to determine she's on the path to sobriety ... and only then will they make their case to the judge -- who makes the final decision.  DCFS thinks it will take anywhere between 6 months and year to make its determination.

There are reports out that Brooke is living with her boyfriend.  We've learned those stories are false, and that she's ensconced in a rehab joint.

As we reported, Brooke lost custody of the twins in May after officials determined she could no longer provide a safe environment for the children. Brooke enrolled in rehab shortly after. The kids are currently with Charlie's ex Denise Richards.

She should never get her kids back, especially if its true that she has been alone with them. Supervised visitation only!

The DCFS isn't going to be happy until one or both of those children are harmed, possibly irrepairably. Not every woman who gives birth is automatically mother material.

I will believe it when and IF it EVER happens. I believe the woman is hopeless. She's had countless opportunities to get her act together and has failed more miserably every time.

fools with such contaminated DNA should automatically be born sterile

NO GOOD can come from breeding with parents like charlie and her...the collateral damage is significant , expensive, and horrifying for all concerned and involved with people like this...celeb and non. especially to the innocent chitlins who never asekd to be born and no doubt will have havoc reeked upon them when the are able to pick up that drink, needle, smoke, powder and potion......

Unfortunately, she'll probably never pass a drug test.

How is she paying for rehab if she's no longer getting child support money from Charlie?

Nice picture, tmz. Why don't you use a picture of kk with no makeup when you write about her?

If you people think that Brook should no longer get custody, than Charlie being the Alcoholic and Drug Abuser he is should not be allowed near his kids, and the Kids should be wards of the State and put into foster Care. Denise Richards Does not want the responsibility of the two boys she has her own 3 kids, She took the Responsibility as a short term solution so Brook can get her life back together which is a lot more than what Charlie wants to do for those two Boys.

DCFS might as well be honest. They aren't trying to reunify these kids with their mother. in reality, the twins are in a pre-adoptive placement just like thousands of other kids in the system just waiting for their mother to slip up so DCFS can run before a judge and terminate her parental rights. Why delay the inevitable? Mueller isn't going to sober up. DCFS is just giving her enough rope so it makes it look like she was the one responsible for her getting TPRed.

She only wants the kids back for Charlies $$$$ each month. She's a meth head and always will be.When the twins are old enough to see her for what she is they will be ashamed and have nothing to do with her. Her meth has always come first before them.She only thinks of herself.loser.
