Can I get a court order to help my adult child with her bipolar disorder?

Philadelphia, PA |

I've tried helping her with her children. I have lost jobs to stay home with her. I've tried calling an ambulance when she threatened to kill herself. I have called police when she has gotten violent. I am at my wits end. I need help.

You will either need to meet with a family law attorney in Philadelphia regarding guardianship options, or you could file for custody of her children. In any event, you do have some options here.
