sounds great, how do I send them to you? If I try to use the attach feature on this site it asks for a url and will not let me attach a file from my hard drive.
Here is the text that I did for the order. if it looks good to you then I can do the petition. I think the other form will be easy to change. I have to email the form to my family today so they can have the form notarized tomorrow. The hearing is Monday morning.
