Hello Sue thank you for your time i wil send my question over now.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have a Family Law evidentiary hearing tomorrow. I will be self representing. I currently have full physcial and legal custody of my daugthers. The respondent wants my oldest daughter who is 14 to be a witness.
I got custody after the respondent did parental kinapping and concelment. She took them to Texas without written permission or permission in general. After reviwing the codes and law should i wait until the judge wants to see my daugther. I do not feel its approriate to bring my duaghter to court unless the judge ask for her.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
My 14 year old daughter was very traumatized by the whole situation and has had previous suicide attempts. She is currently going to Therapy also.
