A Healing Family

After hearing the evidence and receiving the recommendation from the guardian ad litem (who waved his fee), the court awarded our client, Kathy, custody of her four young grandchildren. Kathy left the courthouse with certified copies giving her full legal and physical custody of the kids. She was very emotional and grateful to our lawyer, indicating how important it was for the children to know during this difficult time they will always be safe and taken care of.
