I would go and try and sign your child out.You don't know that they could get such an order here.I think they are bluffing to get you to let him stay.It is very difficult for them to get such an order especially when child was voluntarily admitted.If you want your child out go get them, they likely have to discharge him.

I appreciate the chance to help you today and prayers to you.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

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.
