Customer Question
Second opinion] My granddaughter...

Second opinion] My granddaughter has been living with my daughter & son-in-law since her son was born four years ago. My daughter has had the responsibility of getting him up,taking him to school,picking him up after work,getting his dinner and bathing him for bed.. The daughter supposedly has a job working from home, but a lot of time does not get up until about eleven o'clock. She has a tendancy to keep the family in turmoil. Now all of a sudden she thinks she should tke her son back to Africa to meet his father. My daughter is devastated. What if he never returns?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

We live in Florida.

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

No

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

The mother has a few personality problems and has a way of keeping things stirred up.

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.
