Customer Question
I am a mother...

I am a mother of 2 that currently live in TX with their father. I reside in NC and am under a joint custody case. I have paid for expenses for things that are a necessity, however I was served yesterday afternoon. I am not sure of what but the kids were taking to TX without my knowledge prior to the entire case starting 3 years ago. I decided for the girls to stay with the father or I would have made them go through court, and fighting. I am not sure what to do or expect I do not have extra money for a lawyer, I already spent $1700 to a lawyer in TX.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is this a criminal or civil case?

Civil case

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

There is a lot of information to this case, if he has a question I will answer completely honest.

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
