Hello, I hope everyone is loving this new year. I have never done one of these sights but I always refer to this one for strange advice and such so I thought it would be a great "last resort" per say. I am in the worst custody battle ever and I am at a point I feel there is nothing left to do but give up.
An extremely long story short, (I hope) I have a 10 year old sons who's father I have never been in a relationship with. U[ until recently (august 2015) I was with a man for 9 years, he acted daddy as my son did not see his own father until he was 5, however we were never married. When my son was 5 he began regular supervised visitation with is father which has remained until August of 2015. His father suffers from extreme mental disorders and has a history of violence, because of this his supervision was ordered supervised. The man I was in a relationship with for so many years became horrible after some time, he was extremely manipulative, and after so many frustrating years I chose to leave. I did so in August of 2014 and stayed local to our small town even though I am originally from a larger city 250 miles away but he wouldn't let go, he made it as hard on my son and I as he could. I tried moving 25 miles away and switching jobs but that didn't work either. After 6 months he finally convinced me to come home and try again, I figured what the hell do I have to loose at this point. WELLLL after 6 more months it got worse. I decided to move home to my home town. I told my sons father in the amount of time necessary by our court order and right by the law. After our relocation my son had a week long visit with his father at which time he went behind my back and filed for custody of my son, and temp orders placing him in his sole care until further order of the court all based on false allegations that I was using drugs, couldn't provide a stable home etc. Factually I have provided all his care all his life. My son is an amazing child, in all sports and is socially and financially well off. Additionally my ex and my sons father have joined forces, making up horrible lies about me and how I left my son, so on and so forth. The judge is seeming to side with the "fathers" and I am loosing. Has anyone else dealt with anything similar and what is there I can do to regain control?

Never been in that situation however, do you have a good lawyer that has many years experience in this legal matter?
If so I would hope that he's already given you some professional advice in what direction you should start to go and turn over every stone possible to fight this . If you turn over every stone trying to fight this at least you know matter what happens you've done your best save your documents for your child to see when he grows up if he has any doubt that you did your best to help him and keep him in your life and custody . I hope this helps you.
