Apparently when bio-father is on the birth certificate it is not an abduction, just an absconding. Bio-father filed for full custodial rights. Transferred his educational records, and enrolled him. At least I know the whereabouts of my son who has always lived with me. At least I get to see him on the weekends now. My son wants to come home. I hired a lawyer. Yikes they are expensive. I don't know why his bio-father would do this after so many years of getting along and having visitation without a legal arrangement. I kept my son one weekend. Bio-father filed a motion for me to 'return the child'. The judge did not make a judgement on it. My lawyer told me to return son because that is what the judge wants until court in June. I want my son home. My son wants to come home. Waiting for June. Waiting for June. Waiting, waiting. Why do I have to wait? I am his Mom. He is my son.

It's tough to be the kid in these situations. Like I said, the GAL will actually be an asset, because that person will speak to your son without either you or his dad present. This will enable your son to truly speak his mind and not be afraid to do so. Both you and his dad need to let him know that it's OK to be fully honest with the GAL, as that person is only going to be speaking for him, like his own personal attorney in the middle of things.

Good luck!

My son knows what he wants. He wants things to go back the way they were! It is good to know he will have a voice.

Heather, we told you that he wasn't kidnapping his son. And, since you didn't have custody orders in place, he had every right to file on his own.

You are his mom, but his dad is his dad. YOu want your son, his dad wants his son. Since the child is not a piece of property, there needs to be an unbiased decision by a 3rd party.

And, your son may be telling you that he wants to come home to you because he knows thats what you want him to say...but he could also be telling his dad the same thing, because he knows that's what his dad wants him to say...

Like I said, good thing a GAL was assigned. Now your son has his own voice.
