I have been tormenting about how to get custody of my granddaughter for quite some time now. I have a friend who had some very helpful info for me about how to go about this. Its a long story as to why I am pursuing this but long story short, mom is to immature and selfish. Money was the only factor holding us back, lawyer and court fees you know. I can file a fee waiver and then there are 2 different forms I can file which I am going to do. One is an ex parte emergency custody form and the other is called de facto, meaning we have supported and cared for her since she was born and mom or sperm donor provided no support at all. The burden of proof lies on my husband and I of course but now that I am armed with this info, that is not an issue at all.
I posted the link of my other post for those who want a long read. It really is a long story but hopefully will soon have a happy ending for my peach of a babycakes.
