An Arlington couple is fighting to regain guardianship of their daughter after being stripped of their rights by a judge.

They weren't notified about the hearing and didn't get to tell their side of the story. They found out after it was a done deal.

But what happened was completely legal.

The Covingtons were not notified before their rights were stripped. The ruling came in an ex parte hearing where a judge hears evidence only from the complaining party. The other side isn't given notice of the hearing and doesn't get to respond.

"You just don't understand how this can happen in a democracy." Frank said.

The Covingtons are asking to be reinstated as their daughter's guardians at an upcoming hearing.

"I don't know how we're gonna get her back." Chila said.

The Covingtons are devastated by what's happened. They've accumulated $55,000 in legal bills and they're fearful for their daughter.

But they've made a commitment to keep fighting.
