Since my aunt is the only one with my grandparents contact information do I need to file a court order to get this information out of her since she is not willing to give me there contact information
Family Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Unfortunately, she has no legal duty to help you find them or provide you with that information. Unless you have been appointed as a medical power of attorney or legal guardian for them, then you can't compel her to provide information about where they are if she just wants to be a jerk about it.

.

So rather than trying to go through the courts, I would suggest hiring a private investigator to locate them in FL as that would be a much better use of your money and time as the court can't order her to provide that info to you.

thanks

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.
