    Having a very disappointing experience with them. My boyfriend was held overnight pending a hearing at 1:00 today. At the hearing he was released on his own accord, I have a copy of the release paper from Georgetown Family Court! It is now 8pm and they still have not released him; I called at 6pm to be told they didn’t have any paperwork and if he were going to be released today that he would contact me. Why is it I have the paperwork and they won’t even talk to me about any of this! This is absurd!!
