I was recently told my grandsons father hit him left bruise.

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

They are in Utah. My daughter kept him out of school for two weeks because of the bruise The father has an extensive history of domestic abuse and other felony charges

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

No I'm trying to get direction on exactly how to go about this

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

I would prefer neither of the parents know that I'm doing this because of the circumstances behind the violence I don't want my grandson any more danger until I can get them out of there
