Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
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.
