Thank you for your reply.
I am guessing then you got to this site by mistake or that you failed to read or misunderstood our site rules and terms of service, which specifically told you that nobody from this site can represent you and that our service is limited to providing you information only.
If you want information we are happy to respond and answer you, if you want representation to do things for you, then you need to hire a local attorney.
