Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I’ll be happy to help you. Please not that this site is for educational information only and does not provide legal advice. If her partner is a drug user your daughter may be able to prove CPS with information that will help her. Just because he wants the kids doesn’t mean he’s going to get them. She needs to do the right thing for herself and her kids while the CPS investigation winds its way to conclusion.

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.
