    Your friend needs to get an appointment with her attorney. If he won't give her one, then she needs to write a certified letter demanding an appointment. If that doesn't work (I'll bet it does) she can complain to the State Bar

    William’s Answer

    I'm not too sure about the judges in your area. Here in Houston, the courts are reluctant to terminate parental rights unless there is a step-parent willing to adopt the child or the parent is in the pen. You likely do have legal grounds for termination, but it's up to the judge in the long run. Why not visit with an experienced family law attorney in your area to discuss the likelihood of a judge granting it?

    Judge ruled how can we reverse?

    William’s Answer

    The judge's decision was based on the evidence presented. So long as the judge didn't abuse his discretion, I doubt the case is reversible. you need to talk to an experienced family law attorney-- SOON.

    William’s Answer

    if you reside in Texas, take your New Mexico decree to a family lawyer here to look to see if there is a geographic restriction. I'll bet there's not. There may be no legal restriction on you taking the child. Move quickly for an opinion on the decree.
