My almost 3 year old child (in January) was just diagnosed less than 2 weeks ago with Leukemia. His father, who has been absent for all but 5 months of his life, visited from out of state to supposedly be here for his kid. Found out that he filed for shared custody while here. The health of my child is my number one priority, so I am changing everything I need to in my life to help support his treatment and recovery process, this includes wanting to maintain my full time status of custodial parent. I am very confident based on what doctors and staff have informed us on that his dad will not get any shared time due to living in another state and other circumstances such as past drug and criminal behavior. However, I am not really sure where to start in proceeding with this, especially since now my funds will be tight with medical costs. I could use some help/ advice on where to find a very affordable family law attorney, or any additional information to support my case.
