Hello I'm a Single mother that had a beautiful son 7 years ago... Initially I took care of my son 24/7 the 1st 2 years. It was a horrible experience because I had a c-sec and I decided to quit my job to take care of my son for 9 months. After 2 years, I left the relationship and moved back to my moms house. My ex was such an asshole and didn't help me and he was verbally abusive! Back then my sons medical bills were all under my name and everything else. My ex and his dad convinced me not to collect child support and my ex will pay half the daycare. I did the Thursday to Sunday with my ex who convince me to leave him at his cousins daycare. I didn't feel comfortable after a while because my son would cry and was afraid of his dad every time I dropped him off and he was only 2 years old then. I didn't know back then I had more rights to him. So I decided to go to court to take custody of my son except with my boyfriends advice not to hire lawyer and lost. It has been a rough 4 years for me. I work as a contractor and it has taken a toll on my job because I was so upset losing my son. Please I live in Somerset County of New Jersey and I need to know where I can go for counseling to help me get my son back. He's home with me today because he was crying and hates only seeing me every other weekend. . Thank you!
