If you are in the US, contact the ACLU, they can refer you to a lawyer who has a talent in that situation.

where i live, i would just show up at the court house and ask them for paper work. i live in a very small town though so you might need a different office. Either way start off by asking the courthouse and they will tell you where to go. Same with child support simply go to the office where you have court and someone there can help you.

How do I get the court to even hear my case who do I contact about going to court?? And thank you for responding to me!! And that's a great idea about having the court have some one instead if my father!!!

Ok, Let's start here. You don't need to pay for a lawyer. Have the courts give you one.
You're going to have to find a way to keep your own bills in order. The courts will look at this and think you're not ready yet.

The truth is you're not ready yet. You need to get yourself in order to be able to take care of your son. Find another job, any job that will take you. I don't care if it's taking out garbage at the mall. Do what you need to do.

Always call your son. Even if they don't let you talk. Keep records of when you call. Always show up for visitation. Try to set up more if you can. I know you and your father don't get along. Maybe ask the courts if they will supervise the visits for you, they can. Just tell them you're having a hard time arranging things with your father and you would like more time with him.

When was the last time you went to child support? Maybe go in there and ask for it to be lowered. Bring in proof of how much rent and bills are, and bring pay stubs to show them that you simply can't pay that much right now.

Once you get yourself together, re-summit a claim for custody. You might not get him back full time but possibly weekends alone which is more than you have now. Do not do this before you can show you are stable. Doing so early might hurt your case.
