Customer Question
I need help with...

I need help with grandparents rights. My granson, son of my deceased daughter, is in KY with his remarried father. He has developed severe behavioral issues since being with them, has been hospitalized and is currently in therapeutic FOSTER HOME. He lived in my home for almost 8 years. I have not been allowed ANY contact since July of last year.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I am in IL, they are in KY.

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

No.

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

Not really...
