I was pregnant met my new boyfriend he knew he wasn't the father, we moved in together . When Landon was born he signed the birth certificate months later he kicked me and my son out, he never helped with my son while we lived together his mother did . I let her continue seeing Landon I went to his attorney signed visitation thinking I was doing the right thing. After that he told me he wanted nothing to do with Landon and don't take him to his mothers anymore so I didn't . Months later he takes me to court the date was cancelled rescheduled for two weeks later, on that day I missed the court time I had it in my head it was same time as two weeks prior, I was wrong I called the courthouse when I realized I had the wrong time they wouldn't put me through to anyone, The judge ordered him full custody I had to take my son and give him to the attorney that night . It was worst thing ever my son is very attached to me and he didn't even know who Ethan was. I got one hour on wensday and one hour on Sundays for visitation, I didn't think I needed an attorney because I had done nothing wrong and I'm the mother and he's not the father also I had no money for the attorney, but because I missed court date I lost full custody, also judge didn't know he wasn't the father. His mother wanted Landon in my opinion that's why he took me to court. Then next court date I had an attorney I paid him 500.00 he went in talked to there attorney came out and told me I get one day a week visitation and didn't order paternity test or fight for anything more. I was very dissapointed I have never been in trouble for anything I just missed the first court date. I want my son every time I leave my son freaks out he wants to go home with me. It kills me every day. So now 90 days before next hearing trying to find attorney who will fight for me and my son. Any help out there , this is an injustice to the fullest.
