In order to change your first statement made, you will need to have an affidavit drafted refuting the first statement. This affidavit needs to be carefully drafted to ensure the explanation is correct and does not go to attack your credibility with the first statement.

The reasons will need to be precisely explained why there is a change in position and to also demonstrate that you have not been coerced in any way.

You can achieve what you require to protect your son, but you will need careful preparation of the affidavit.

You have a legal right to protect your interests and you son in this important situation.

Does this answer your important question today ?

If you need any further information let me know and I will be pleased to assist.

You can come back to this post any time to ask questions and there will be no further charges to you.

Don’t forget to rate me 5 stars as this supports me helping the community, and your important questions.
