Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
All she knows is that the police came and took her away...she doesn't know about any court order or anying
It definitely was involuntarily.
I need to leave for a half hour or so. How can we continue later?
An attorney friend recommended she ask for a public defender -- she has no funds...none. I tried calling the local public defender office and was told they don't handle these cases although their website clearly states that they do. Another friend gave me the name of a specific person to call and I'll call him later on today.
Thanks for your help. Let me know if you have any additional ideas/tips.
