I was visiting my fiancé in Wisconsin, as well as all of my friends and family. I was very very happy until the plane landed in Denver. I began to cry because I just left everyone. It turned into a panic attack so I called my clinics crisis line, and suddenly, I am in handcuffs being taken to the hospital. I NEVER said I wanted to hurt myself or others, I just needed someone to talk to. I’ve been trying to get a transcript of the conversation and I was told that they don’t record calls, which is absurd. I’m in danger of losing my children because of this. I have 2 8yr old boys, and I’m getting married in July! I would NEVER kill myself!! But I cannot get proof from them that I didn’t say it!

I ended up locked up in a mental hospital for 4 days against my will.

Also, I spoke to a therapist when I got to the hospital and I told him I just had a BAD day!! And he said we get a lot of people here with “bad day syndrome “

Hello?
Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 7 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

Sorry for the delay, I got tied up at an office matter.

If they have no transcript, which is true because they do not record their calls, I am not sure what you really are asking from us, because it will remain your word against their word.

That’s why I need help. To try to get something from the clinic that says I’m NOT suicidal so I can prove it to my ex husband for one thing, and I want to go after them for having me against my will in that horrible clinic. I can’t lose my kids!
Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 7 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

It would be in your medical records if you went in and were not suicidal, so you are entitled to get your own medical records by subpoena, since they are mental health records, to prove you were never suicidal. That is the only way you can get the information. If it is not in the facility records, then there is nowhere else the information would be other than you going to get a new examination and have the new doctor testify that you are not suicidal and have no danger of being suicidal, which would prove your current condition and that is what the court cares about when it comes to custody.

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.
