I will respond to each point in your follow-up.
how long does an "appeal" usually take in juvenile court? and will any decisions made by judge with regard to my daughter (ie, forced meds at residential treatment center) remain in force till appeal decision has been made?
An appeal must be filed within 30 days, but it can take 3 months to just have a new judge hear the case, let alone overcome it. Any decisions made by the judge will remain in force until successfully appealed, or if the judge herself chooses to set them aside.
also, i just realized that i did not use "reply to expert" but accidently posed new question. i hope this will not occur any additional charges as i believe i had signed on to free 7 days/1 month plan for $53.00?
If you signed up for an unlimited plan, no other charges will take place. But to permit me to get compensated, you would still need to positively rate my answers to you.
i also paid 53.00 for 1 question a few days ago before i realized you had a one month plan for same price!
If you are not sure about what plan you have, I can have the moderators assist you--I have no information here as to your plan because I am a legal professional and do not work for the site.
Also, it is very late here and I will be logging off to get some rest. Should you have further follow-up concerns, I promise to respond to them in the morning when I log back in. Please take care!
