How to get temporary custody of my 2 grandchildren. Her mother is going to jail for the 4th DUI. My son is dead.
There is bad blood between us. We legally tried for temp. custody in Jan 14 when she was sentenced for her 3rd DUI. We lost the case. She then kept the kids from us until this afternoon. Apparently she has fled MD and is in Utah but we think she is fixing to get picked up by the law. She called and allowed me to talk to the kids for the first time since Feb 14. She wants to place the kids with us but wants to get them the minute she is released which is likely to be a while. She receives $1100 SS/mo for the kids because my son died. We want to keep the kids util she is sober and responsibly but not on her terms . Then we got to understand healthcare and school issues.

I am on total disability and was involved in an accident as the passenger of a drunk driver.
My medical bills exceeded the policy minimum and I am still seeing a therapist for PTSD. They called the driver and harassed him saying my medical bills were coming close to exceeding the minimum. you see my boyfriend was the driver so I think they thought I would stop going to the dr which I needed to do for proper care. Can I get more of a settlement than the policy states for bodily injury since I will still continue to see a therapist concerning my PTSD.
