Customer Question
My wife, who apparently is...
My wife, who apparently is planning to file divorce, has taken the kids (9 and 15 years) out of the family house and taken them to her friends house. The kids are not allowed to leave and i could not reach my kids.How could one parent just take kids and block the other with no legal family plan?
What can i do to quickly get my kids back to home till the divorce is officially filed.
Please help, very concerned.

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.
