Customer reply replied 6 years ago

sometimes she has alz but she says she can't talk to me unless he says so

has blockeded anyone with a Texas accent

 

Lawyer: John Legal, Attorney replied 6 years ago
She has rights under the Federal Patient Bill of Rights to speak to anyone she chooses. He cannot block you so long as she can express that she wants to speak with you.

Unfortunately, the only other way to get control is to file for guardianship in her county. The court can appoint a guardian to make decisions for her. This could be you or your stepfather.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
