not enough hawaii p.i. questions to answer tonight?
was in the mood and on a roll, thats all
Custody is not an option based upon the facts presented.
By telling the Asker there is nothing she can do when in Illinois she has standing to file for an emergency guardianship can cause her to lose the child. Illinois attorneys must answer.
Judy Goldstein is an IL lawyer and says custody is not even an option.
Custody and guardianship are not the same. She has standing for guardianship but must act hastily.
Counsel - Please don't bring me into your discussion by twisting the meaning of my response. The only thing you said that was accurate is that I am an IL lawyer.
You know... Everyone: I was just trying to be helpful to this person whom I thought was distressed. Two attorneys agreed with me. I you disagreed you could have at least been professional and respectful about it. Snarky comments do not serve the purpose of this forum, which is to be helpful to people asking questions, NOT making comments to show to try to demonstrate that you are the best attorney.
Rest assured that you are all much smarter than I am. But I would remind you that even judges only issue "opinions" which is all I offerred
Counselor - You brought me into this conversation. I had not commented about you or your response. gary in his subtle manner asked why you were answering IL specific questions. Peggy reminded you that you left the asker with a feeling of doom. We get it that you were trying to help. Sadly, that was not the effect.
You are right, of course and you are the better lawyer. All the best to you. You are even correct in supporting snarky answers that serve no purpose
