Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. JustAnswer is not a law firm. Legal experts can only provide general legal information. Per the rules of the site and of our various bar associations, they cannot provide actual representation for site members. So, unfortunately, no lawyer here would be able to call your son in prison and advise him on this matter.

If you wanted to know where you could find a criminal post-conviction lawyer who practices in the Glendive, MT courts, we can direct you to legal referral services which can steer you to one. If you could use that information or are in need of other general legal information about your son's situation, let me know. Otherwise, this is not going to be the forum for you to find what you're looking for You could contact customer service at***@******.*** for a refund of your deposit.
