Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

This would be an issue of potential violation of her civil rights pursuant to the 8th Amendment prohibiting cruel and unusual punishment. Legally, the Courts hold an inmate is entitled to basic medical care for their medical needs. If your daughter is not getting that basic medical care, then this is a violation of her civil rights. There are civil rights groups such as the ACLU and NAACP who assist people who are in these situations. Also, there are civil rights attorneys in VA and there job is to sue state and federal government agencies and you can get her a civil rights attorney (they do not take money up front) at the same sites used by other attorneys: http://www.hg.org or http://www.superlawyers.com

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank 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.
