Customer Question
I have a son...

I have a son in sioux falls sd minnehaha county jail. he is very mentally ill and when transferred there they did not give him his medication which is critical and he is under a court order to have to take medications. so now he's in isolation and has not been able to shower or even brush his teeth in 5 or more days

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the court order was issued in?

Are they not obligated to give him his meds? It caused him to go very manic which has led to court dates being posponed and doing more harm to him mentally sd

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

With the mandatory medication? Yes it is on file

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

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.
