Customer Question
lawyer, one I was able...
Is this what is called Parental Alienation: I do have a lawyer, one I was able to obtain through the court, to no avail. My Attorney doesn't return my phone calls, nor do she respond to any of the complaints I have texted to her. I can't afford A Lawyer who will represent me with a vigorish defense. My lawyer seems as though she's only doing the bare minimum. What am I to do?
Unless I get legal representation who will provide me with the same zeal as though I was actually paying them, will only have my Two Children Maurice Casey age 9 And Stephine Casey age 6 taken away from me. There seem to be no help in sight.
It's gotten so bad that for the last two days I haven't talked to either Maurice or Stephine.
I'm at my wit's end!
I have no idea what to do, I'm on disability, so I haven't the funds in which to pay for a Good Lawyer. Each day that goes past my Heart yarns for my children to come home.
Each time I've talked to both children I can hear the foster mom telling them to get off the phone; even through we may talk only 3-4 minutes. This is depressing and heart breaking.
I'm scheduled to give a deposition 8-1-16 and I don't know what that is or what to do. I'm afraid not knowing what to do or how to do it can only prejudice my case.
I'm desperately needing help!

Good afternoon,

I have been a licensed attorney for more than 30 years and I handle family law issues.

You are the one who asked for the phone call. And because your legal issues are so incredibly complex and convoluted I am not willing to attempt to even get into these issues in writing---it could take me many hours to get through it.

If you do not want a phone call now, then I will be happy to opt out.

Doug

Hi, I'm Heather, an attorney with 15 years experience, and I can assist for informational purposes.

In the deposition, it is normally best to keep your answers brief, and refrain from telling long stories, or going on and on talking. Be honest, but if you truly do not remember something or don't know the answer, it's okay to say that you don't know. It's also okay to tell the lawyer questioning you that you can't really guess, if he asks you a question that is hypothetical. Your deposition is not the time for you to win your case, but rather to try to minimize the damaging information they are going to be getting on you.

Has that answered your question.

She passed last week and child services had to step in and give temporary foster care to my brother who lives in the same state of my aunt. At child protective services, my uncle agreed to give custody to my mother as long as he keeps parental rights. My concern is two-tiered. Does parental rights mean that he can file for custody when he is ready and does these rights also hold bearings with my aunt's life insurance, which will go to my cousin's? … read more
