I have a 3 year old little boy. His birthday is August 5 as well. I am 22 years old, and i love my son to death. my sons father is in his 50s. We have not been together sence i found i was pregnant, and untill july 25 of this year i have been with another man whom my son calls daddy, and i work full time, and my sons real father never made any attempt to see my son, and never helped, i never put him on child support because i just didnt want to dill with him. He has two grown sons, who are bothe in the system allready, there. they were raised around drugs and guns and taught how to be dope boys. he has a 4 year old little girl also who he has full time because the mother doesnt want to be apart of her life. but i got into trouble, my charges are being dismissed, i was arrested on july 25, and now i am beginning pti. i was arrested in Miami florida where i was residing at the time. And brought back to south carolina. Florida family court gave full custody to my sons father, so he says. i never sighned any papers, and wasnt able to be present during court, because i was on house arrest at the time. i have visitation rights, but not set time through any court, its said that it is between me and my sons father, and now because i dont want to try and rekindle any relationship that we had he is keeping my son from me. my son is what i live for i know deep down that his real father does not even want him, hes keeping him from me to hurt me. what i want to know with this being said as a mom can i do to get my son back. i am 22, and he is my only child, he 54 with three other children, he has had his chance to be a dad. i want my chance to be a mom. I am a great mother and always put my son first. i want to take him to court but i dont know what steps to take. can someone please help me ?

Ah, ok, I was confused, I thought his dad was in Florida. I am not from the US, so I really can't say, but I think you need to talk to a lawyer. Just be aware, however, that you may have to accept joint custody.

You need to talk to a lawyer, and if the child currently resides in Florida, I think you will need to file there.

What trouble are you in? Until the charges have been dismissed, I'd say there isn't a lot you can do. Did you actually DO the crime? Depending on what it is, as to how your chances look of getting primary custody. But you will have to accept the fact that you will probably only have joint custody after this, not full custody.

And of course you never signed any papers, the courts decided this custody arrangement because who was going to look after your child while you were in jail/on house arrest?
