My name is Cassandra and I am a single mother of two. A few years ago, I was in a very hopeless place. During this hard time, my son’s father took my son for the weekend, and never brought him back. As a mom, I was devastated and had no idea what to do to get him back.
I had no money for a lawyer, and no knowledge of the legal system. JAMLAC helped me when I didn’t know where to turn. My lawyer, Steve, helped me get full custody of my son legally, but I still had no idea where my son was. His father was on the run and he was hiding my son from me. At times, I thought I’d never see my son again. His sister, Zaraya, asked about him all the time.
Sulma, my paralegal, went above and beyond and somehow found my son all the way in Pittsburgh. She contacted the school principal and the Pittsburgh Police. Breanna, my victim advocate, asked her very own brother to donate miles for me to fly there to bring him back. In September, after 2 years of going through the court process and searching for him, I was finally reunited with my son and we flew back
home to Denver.
JAMLAC gave me hope. My family is whole again, and we get to spend Christmas together for the first time in many years, all thanks to the team at JAMLAC. I don’t know where we’d be without them!
