Customer: My name is ***** ***** and my issue is regarding my need to draft a legal memo regarding emergency petition to Maryland court to have custody be awarded to me of my nephew. My sister, Michele and mother
of Nicholas, 15 years old, committed suicide on Oct 10, 2015. Nicholas was being raised by my mother for the past 10 years. But in December, without my knowledge she gave custody to my younger sister Lisa. Lisa is narcissistic and has does not have any children. Her antics and lack of human compassion is deplorable. I do not want to lose Nicholas to suicide. Yesterday, he called me crying because he said he was sick and Lisa refused to take him to the doctors. After I called the school nurse and requested she call Lisa to ask her to take Nicholas to the doctors she did. He was diagnosed with Mono. Lisa is demanding that he go to school tomorrow, against the doctors orders. She screams at him, belittles him and now has blocked me from calling him.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The current order is only a temporary order
granting Lisa custody. I am afraid the courts will not allow me to join the petition because it is just temporary. I live in California and my little sister lives in Virgina. Maryland is hearing the case because that is where my mother lives. Can I file in CA or do I file in Virginia.
