Hi, My name is Philip. I am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am truly sorry for this dilemma. Can you tell me, at this point do you have court ordered visitation (from a Pennsylvania court)?
And can you tell me, is Bureau of Child Welfare Services involved in this case yet?

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
