I have been providing financial assistance and accomodation

Customer Question

Hello Pearl, I have been providing financial assistance and accomodation to a malaysian lady who has been seperated from her husband and she needs a lawyer to assist her.
JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: She is from Penang and now living in NSW Australia. The husband has threatened to kill her youngest child if she does not return to him but she can mot as she is currently undergoing student visa appliaction that has apparently been approved so she can not leave australia for 3 months
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No thats what she needs.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: Yes but I believe it would be best comming from her as It is not really my place to intefere but I do feel she needs a lawyer.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

I am happy to speak on the phone but I would request some clarification that will be beneficial as I explained the situation about needing a lawyer and you advised it was not clear what we are asking and i dont have time or money to waste as potentially a childs life is at risk.
