    in order to

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-To whom shall I go to help me?
    2-Whom shall I go to to help me?

    3-To whom shall I go in order to help me?
    4-Whom shall I go to in order to help me?

    Re: in order to

    If I were you, I wouldn't use any of them. They all sound rather awkward to me, particularly the one with the "in order". It seems to be a rarely used expression. I would put it this way, "Who shall I ask for help?"

    But let's see what teachers of English have to say... I am not the one.

    I would say:
    "Who will I go to to help me?"
    "Who should I ask for help?"
    "Who should I go to for help"

    Of course you have the options: (which don't help you with "whom/who)"Who can help me?"
    "Where can I get help?"
    "Where can I go to get help"
