I don't smoke so I have no idea what the current price of tobacco is in either country. Up here, they are on average 10 bucks for a pack of 25. However, a $5000. retainer fee will get you maybe 12 hours of legal counsel. Add in disbursements, travel time, preparation, interviews etc and the bill quickly adds up. As I said, not smoking those 800 packs isn't going to come close to covering the costs. I've seen parents sell their cars and put liens against their homes to pay for getting their kids back. Eventually, there just isn't anything more for them to sell, give up or barter for and the child services move on to the next family.
Oh you actually thought there was a good one this election. I've said it before and I'll say it again. We are stuck with Oblamabush for 4 more years and whoever comes after him, Rep or Dem, is gonna be even worse.
I'll see if I can send you some Rush Limbaugh bumper stickers.lol
