I was in a horribly mental abusive relationship with my ex. I escaped the only way I could which was to move across the nation to be with my dad here. I brought my son who had just turned 6 at the time. He's 7 now. His dad who is a creep went immediatley got a lawyer (who his family paid for) served me with papers I had no clue what to do so I went online and filed a response. Well they claim they never got it and in the meantime he took my son and had a divorce decree finalized because supposedly I never responded. I had met a guy here and fell in love as well. They are taking money out of my check thats way more then it should be for the wage I am making so I am pretty much paralyzed. I have nothing to get a lawyer with. If I win the lotto the first thing Im going to due is hire THEE BEST lawyer to help me get my son back! No 7 yr old & there mom should be kept apart! We talk on the phone and I was there for 2 weeks last summer and his dad only let me see him 2 times:( His dad is cruel he wont let my son see any of my family back there. I think my son has a pretty boring life. I want him with me so I can help him with his homework, take him to Chuck E Cheese etc.

I'm too new to post links but go someplace like search mothers dot com. they have lots of resources for custodial issues, message boards where you can talk to people who've been through what you have and give you tips. I hope you stay strong and make the best of it till you can get your son back or see him more often. Have you considered moving back to the state he's in? That would certainly help your case and keep you closer to him.

Yah I know that would be best but I have dutys here now. My child comes first I just think there I would be even more devastated not being able to have him with me at all times. His dad put some horrible things in the decree. Like I only get to see him once every 2 weeks for a couple hrs with a supervisor. At the time he was very mad I left him. Thanks for the tips.

I'm very sorry to hear that but I am glad that you and your son got out of that situation. I am also glad that you found someone new also. I am so sorry that you have to fight to get your son back. I hope a miracle happens for you. I think he deserves to be with his mother also since his dad is so cruel anyway. I will pray for you.

Mothers do have rights!!! Don't give up! Fight for your child. Money isn't everything. Most judges do award the child to the mother. Just don't give up. The more the system sees you fight, the better it is for you!!!!
