Hello, my name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer.  I will be the attorney assisting you today.
I’m sorry to hear that you are having these legal troubles. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly. I will attempt to respond quickly to every one of your posts, but if not, please be patient, and I promise I will get back to you as soon as possible.

How did they put you in the hospital here? Is there some court order forcing you to be there?

Customer

I’m sorry to hear about your issues here, hopefully, we can get them solved quickly.

Generally, unless there is some court order forcing me to stay in the hospital then you have the ability to check yourself out. There would have to be a court order forcing you to stay there against your will.

If she wants a lawyer to help here, then she would have to hire one locally.  There are no lawyers for hire here.  She can find a highly-rated local lawyer on a lawyer review site like Avvo.com for her city.  If she cannot afford a lawyer and are low/no income, then she can search your county legal aid office on Google for their contact information and contact them for some free legal help. Or you can do it for her of course.

Customer
ok what type of sttroney would it be? what category? i am researching and have no idea.
Customer
