Equal Justice Impacts Real Lives:
Skylar* thought she took care of things exactly as she needed to to provide for her daughter. Skylar knew she was going to be sent overseas for military duty, and she signed a Delegation of Parental Authority (DOPA) allowing her cousin parental authority over her daughter, Hope. Skylar completed the paperwork to revoke that authority just before she returned to the states. The cousin received the revocation papers. Even though Skylar did exactly what she was supposed to do, things did not work out as planned. When she went to see Hope to bring her home, the cousin refused to let her go. Can you imagine the heart-wrench and confusion felt by Skylar and Hope? Thankfully, Skylar turned to LSNM for help. LSNM filed court papers for the return of Hope. The Court ordered the immediate return of Hope. With a sigh of relief and tears of joy, Skylar and Hope, mother and daughter, remain happily reunited.
