Customer Question
The Police just came...

The Police just came and took my daughter. I was never served. Her father put a restraining order with an emergency court. This restraining order

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No it just happened an hour ago. The father filed this same restraint order but the he did not appear in court so the judge told me it would be handled on another court date the 26th of october. He also changed the story on the restraining order. He is lying. Plus I was never served. I would have been there.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No not at the moment
