I recently fled from home due to domestic violence and found a temporary shelter and during the process of entering our temporary shelter. I signed a release form stating that the shelter employee can talk to my doctors, daycare, employment and a lawyer if I decide to proceed with one. Also how can I show proof once I get my consent form back? Should i do everything by email?
I'm sure you can revoke your consent. Since it was given in writing, deliver your revocation in writing. If giving the consent was a condition of providing services, you may either not be able to revoke or will lose the services.
TO ALL QUESTIONERS: I provide this answer in an effort to assist and guide only. The answers are qualified further by you providing the full and complete facts and background or not, and by the space limitations of this forum. The answer does not serve as a substitute for a live sit-down with an attorney. In no way is any answer to be construed as a formal giving of legal advice nor is an attorney-client relationship formed. You are not permitted to quote or refer to answers given in any court pleading or hearing. TO QUESTIONERS FROM WV & NY: Although I am licensed to practice in your state, be advised that I practice on a day-to-day basis in Massachusetts. I answer questions in your state in areas of the law in which I practice, and in which I feel comfortable trying to offer you assistance based on my knowledge of specific statutes in your state and/or general principles applicable in all states. Being licensed to practice there, however, does not provide me with the detailed knowledge of local procedures and practices that comes from day-to-day work. It is always best to work with attorneys and court personnel in your own area to deal with specific problems and factual situations.
You can revoke her release at any time by proper notice. but I don't know what the consequences of revoking the release.
