“My daughter is currently being held due to a federal case. She knows she is going to do some time. Her husband was just recently released from a state facility. He is on HIP. She is 8 months pregnant, due in about month. She is willing to give my husband and I temporary guardianship. The problem is the facility she is at doesn’t do any type of legal notarizing. And being a federal inmate, U.S. Marshalls dont/wont transport for any legal case except her federal case. How do I get something legal so I can pick up my granddaughter when she is born? We are in Louisville Kentucky. Please help, there isn’t much time.”
