Hello there --

-

I am another attorney here at Just Answer and will be online for most of the night. Can you please tell me what your situation is all about and what legal questions regarding custody that you have for us tonight? It would probably be easier for both of us if you can tell me what you are seeking to do (are YOU seeking custody or do you believe that a child should be removed from this home) and if so, can you give me some information regarding what is happening to the child that is so awful that custody should be changed in this matter? As much information as you can provide will be very helpful ==== just bear with me while I read what you post and then type up the answers. THANK YOU VERY MUCH

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.
