... are merits and the contributor level ? Each attorney has a different level, so far I have seen level 9 - 19 ? What does it mean and is it something I need to know before hiring an attorney to help me with all the current mess ups and mistakes currently uncompleted since 2007 towards me and my home relationship and lost children. Sorry I was unable to fit the whole question in the first box. I hope you are able to answer my concerns.
