We are unable to respond to questions of a legal nature. Matters dealing with marriage, divorce, separation, domestic violence, child abduction, child custody & visitation, child support, adoption, trusts, wills, estates, property, etc., are under the jurisdiction of state and local courts, and should be addressed to family lawyers in your state. The American Bar Association Section of Family Law is a national association for marital and family law attorneys.
If you need to consult with a lawyer and are unable to locate one through your personal contacts, you may want to contact a local lawyer referral service. You may find a lawyer referral service via your telephone directory, see FindLegalHelp.org from the ABA Division for Legal Services, or call the ABA Service Center at 1-800-285-2221.
For more information about contacting your state or local bar, visit the State and Local Bar Directory on the ABA Division for Bar Services website.
