My girlfriend was admitted to a mental hospital under false

Customer Question

My girlfriend was admitted to a mental hospital under false pretence and against her will she was placed on a three day hold that was up at 6am this morning and instead of releasing her they extended her stay because the doctor that admitted her went on vacation, they told us if she walked out she would be arrested and if i helped her i would be arrested for kidnapping. This is so very wrong and her 8yr old son and 3yr old daughter are not handling it well with out her. Is there anythink that can be done to get her out asap, she's falling apart in there

Did she see a judge today? Is she scheduled to see one soon?
