Customer Question
I live in Tennessee...

I live in Tennessee and I have 2 granddaughters who live in Pennsylvania. What do I have to do to get custody of them?

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

No I haven't

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

I need to know how difficult it is and what it would cost

Lawyer's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Lawyer's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

So, I wont get any answers until I pay that amount?

Lawyer's Assistant: You end up paying for the answer if you are satisfied with it.

Ok thank you for your time

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Why are you seeking to get custody? Are their parents unfit?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I do not like their living environment and know they would be much better off down here with me. Their parents in my opinion are unfit. Thank you for your time I will get it straightened out.
Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 8 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

I am sorry, I do not understand your last sentence, do you wish to continue and want us to provide you information on what you would need to do to get custody in the PA court? Let me know as it sounds from that last sentence like you may not wish to proceed.

Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 8 months ago

You have not been charged anything but a deposit, which you can contact customer service about and get refunded. Good luck to you. Best wishes.

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.
