Our first meeting with Tim Ament goes back to 2012. At that time we were just asking questions about grandparents rights. Unfortunately we found out that grandparents rights in the state of Iowa were pretty weak and that the biological parents were in full control of the child's contact with grandparents. Over the years following this visit we researched grandparents rights through other agencies and felt we fell into a large group of people who were denied access to their children and grandchildren. We had actually come to the conclusion we would have to wait to see our grandson when >he -turned 18 and was of legal age to make his own decisions.
Years went by with no contact with our grandson. We approached the Ament law firm with new information and he looked at our case and felt it was well worth us pursuing, guardianship of our grandson. He was upfront with us and that it was not going to be easy. We were so grateful that he was willing to take on the case, primarily for the welfare of our grandson.
His staff and his handling of the case was flawless. We were informed of every move and the appointment of a guardian ad litem for our grandson was perfect. We would highly recommend the services provided by Tim Ament and staff to anyone needing legal services.
