My ex was arrested for an assult 4 felony (because our minor child was in the room) a few months ago. He has pled not guilty and it may go to trial if he doesn't take the plea bargain next month. On top of that I was surved custody papers the day he got arrested. We're going through separate mediations now. I had my first one today. I was told he has an attorney now for the custody case. I was also told that the courts only focus on the present and furture, not the past. There was a 3 mo period I stayed at a friends and saw my son almost daily, took him over night a few times. I heard he's gather info to prove that I "abandoned" my son. Now I have had him since March 26th and he's had him 3 nights (on seperate occasions) since we were granted 3rd party contact so we can share our son. Should I get an attorney?
