Volunteer Needed Urgently

July 7, 2009

I urgently require a volunteer to help. It is regarding a family member who is in a divorce case. The wife has alleged a case of cruelty against the husband. The court requires that a volunteer from a reputed NGO supervise the visits of the child (1year, 7months) and father. His parents too will be present. We live in Bandra west.

If anyone can help us or can guide us on this, please contact me on the email address given below.
Thank you very much.
