Customer Question
My son has a...

My son has a friend, his mother has bipolar and other mental health issues. I am watching my sons friend sliwly deteriorate through having epileptic fits under the stress of his mother. He has tried on numerous occasions to get her into supported care. I am not sure if she is compliant with her care plan. My son is supporting his friend as well financially as the stress ofbhis mother is too much these young men are only 25 yrs of age. We need to find out how she can be placed under an involuntary treatment order and placed in an extended stay facility in Victoria. I know this space as I have worked in it for 20 years. I also have a son with schizophrenia.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken? Have any papers been filed in Victoria family court?

Not sure...the boys are asking me to find out the steps to go ahead with starting the process. My email is***@******.***

Lawyer's Assistant: Have they talked to a lawyer about this yet?

Hang on will find out.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Its goong to take a day to gather all the information.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
