Sorry to hear this. Best wishes for getting them back quickly, and as unharmed as possible.

At the hearing, did you have counsel present, or represent yourselves?

Chris and Mel, you have my heartfelt sympathies, and my prayers. I almost lost custody of mine once, and know what you've been through so far.

I unfortunately had to represent myself and I got railroaded.

As the others said, good luck and let us know if we can help.
I'm currently setting things up with a Canadian lawyer that I've been in contact with since early 2008. We'll be retaining him and filing as soon as we can.

So there are two things (other than cash flow) that would help.

1. a place for me and Chris to stay in northern Washington while I appear at court. Preferably along the I-5 corridor, Bellingham or Blaine would be awesome.

2. a place to stash my firearms in northern Washington while I'm in Canada where I really should be able to defend myself, but am forced to be unarmed.

As far as defending yourself, at least years ago, it was pretty easy to bring a shotgun or rifle into Canada.

My thoughts on the subject are not fit to print.

The judge sounds BRIBED not lazy.

And that is the most civil thing I can say there.

Chris and Mel, words fail me. I don't pray as a rule. But I will tonight.

+1 to what the others said.

Not much I can add, but if I can help let me know!
