Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: We have an adult special needs (Autistic, low functioning) son who is in the care of Community Living and also comes home every other weeekend. Community Living have given us a service agreement that we have looked over and feel very uncertain about the content and are not wanting to sign it..we need a lawyer to have a look and advise us on some of the issues. I am his mum (Francie) I am is Welfare guardian. is there anyone who could look over this document and advise us on this in Hamilton NZ
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?
Customer: I have asked a family friend my councillor to look over this and he suggested getting some legal help-before signing this form. I have not approached Community Living as such at this point but feel I need to first have this looked at. I have not filed any papers other than Guardian Welfare etc every three years.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about this yet?
Customer: I tried to contact Isaac's (our son) appointed Lawyer Murray Earl in Hamilton but he is unable to advise as he is unwell and near retirement.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No that is enough for now I think..thank you.

Have you asked Murray if he can recommend a replacement lawyer? Or is he out of action?

I think you do need a sit down and talk to a lawyer about the concerns in the agreement. If you want I could try to find someone
