I'm looking into this for you- it'll be just a moment.
Sure, take your time

Wow, that is great information.
Where would I look for an Attorney who specializes in this type of law?
http://clarifi.org/resources/pennsylvania-bar-association-lawyer-referral-service and www.lawyers.com and www.martindale.com are also good directories - just verify the attorney is in good standing with the bar.
Ok, thank you very much!
Very welcome. Good luck on all this - I'm sure you are anxious to be reunited with your granddaughter! Take care.
