HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.
I am sorry to hear of this matter. Please tell me:The custody of the children is granted to the Mother via a PR court?
And it is ole legal custody? And the children are still on PR?
And the Mother is in Philadelphia, PA now?What has she tried with the courts that you state they will not help her?
Thank you for the additional information.If she has custody from the PR courts, then I suggest can bring the kids here. But she needs to have legal representation. And in that regard, she should try to contact the Legal Aid Offices in Philly Telephone:(###) ###-#### I suggest she will want to have a copy of her custody orders.She also can contact the PR Embassy in Washington, DC and ask for help from them, too. 1(###) ###-####She needs to have legal representation. And the Legal Aid should be able to provide her with that service since she is low income as that is who the Legal Aid agency helps.
The PR embassy should be aware that she needs help in this regard as they also can get involved. It is not going to be easy. Many questions will arise for instance - why did she leave the children with a man who was abusive toward her, etc. But those two agencies should be able to help her.
You're welcome. I wish there was more to offer for her at this time. But it is a family law matter. She could try the police in PR and see about parental kidnapping since she has the custody order. They could help to locate the children for her.
I will opt out and maybe another professional here has more suggestions for you. There is no need to rate this at this time. Do not reply or rate and your deposit will remain in tact and another may be able to help. Good luck.
