A: You need to consult in person with a family lawyer in your area. Find one that offers a free consultation. If you believe that you cannot afford a lawyer then contact the local legal aid office for assistance.
Ileana M Rivera agrees with this answer
A: The best thing you can do is find a family lawyer with experience in your area. There are some lawyers that offer a consultation free of charge, that way you can find out first if they can help you before paying for attorney's fees. Best to you.
