Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to help if I can. Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct any necessary research, and type a response. Thank you.
First and foremost, I suggest that you get your girlfriend a lawyer. The lawyer can make a request with the sheriff’s department to get a temporary release for the purpose of visiting her mother before her mother passes. It is certainly not guaranteed, but is not impossible for such a request to be granted. This is particularly true in this case where your girlfriend is not incarcerated due to some sort of violent crime.
The lawyer can also file an emergency motion with the court to ask a judge’s permission for your girlfriend to visit her mother. Either the judge or the sheriff can authorize this request. So there are those two avenues for the lawyer to take.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, please remember to provide a positive rating via the stars (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so it is much appreciated!). Thank you. :)
