I can not afford a lawyer or even the trip there, what should I do or how should I handle this? What should i expect? She does have one other minor in possession here in the state of Iowa but that was expunged after doing community service. Can they hold that against her? She was talked into going down there by a friend of hers while i was out of town. Can the person that took her across state lines get in trouble? Their not going to take my child from me are they?
If you and her father can't afford a lawyer, the court should appoint on for her. That's thebmost I can say without more details.
