I had a difficult case in that I wanted to remove my son from Illinois (specifically- Cook County). His father visits often with him, paid child support, etc. Though my teenage son has an involved father, I could offer a better quality of life in MO where I would be able to reside with my husband. The case seemed pretty simple but I knew that I had a 50/50 chance as Cook County does not like to allow removal of a child- specifically when the father is involved. I researched several attorneys but ultimately felt the Josh Haid was the best choice if I was going to have any chance at all. I met Josh in his office and we spoke about what my odds were. Josh helped me through court. Though I can not say enough great things about Josh, Suzette (another attorney on the case) was really my rock. She called me when I needed her to, responded to my worried emails and helped me think through my next course of action. My case was not typical in that we were thrown a couple surprises by the judge but that is why I wanted to best attorney that I could possibly have. The case lasted around 5 months but I can finally say the judge granted my relocation request today. I can finally give my son the white picket fence, great school system and community that I have always dreamed of for him. Thank you Josh and Suzette. You have forever changed our lives!
