I have a beautiful 7 ur old girl who has lived with me since her father and I have split 6 yrs ago. About a month ago she wanted to stay with her dad because she got in trouble and was mad at me so I fb her dad and said she wants to stay with u for awhile and brought her clothes there and let her stay for a week however he refused to give her back and went and got a lawyer and is now trying to get full custody of her. I finally got her back and refuse to give her to him because I'm afraid he will keep her again. I don't do drugs or drunk I am a very good mother but a few months ago my 3 yr old took off in me while I was cleaning and went next door to ride his bike when I noticed he was t in the house the cops were alrdy there to arrest me. The case was dropped because I do not neglect my kids and it was a terrible mistake. But he is going to court with his snooty unprofessional lawyer to gain full custodybof my daughter and using that as his fight and claims I have no income and has had many boyfriends. However I am a disabled veteran on a fixed budget and I have only lived with 2 diff men in 7yrs which is pretty good. We live in a four bedroom house in the country and her father has a one bedroom apartment with bunk beds whom he shares with his daughter... Kinda weird!! I cannot afford a lawyer but I will be damned if he takes her away from me when he has very poor hygiene and smokes pot everyday!! What can I do as a mother with no lawyer to fight him in this case? Do I have anything to worry about?
