I just broke up with my boyfriend of 2 years... Our son is turning 1 on August 5th. Since I refuse to get back with him, he is saying he is going to get a good lawyer and take me to court for full custody. I have a full time job. When I get off work, Im caring for my kids. (I have a daughter with someone else. Her father is not around, so she calls him Dad..) I dont have any criminal history. Im a good mom! I live for my little angels!! Him on the other hand, has a criminal history, including animal cruelty, aggrivated DUI, several traffic violations, and I think he has some charges for fighting in a bar. He doesnt beat on the kids or anything. But he does yell often, mostly to my daughter. But when my son was 2 and 3 months old he would scream at him in the middle of the night to "shut the F up"... He yells at me often also.. But when I go to court I know he will lie about it! I dont have any proof or evidence.... His family has money.. So Im wondering if it is possible for him to get full custody if he has a good lawyer? I dont really have any money... The money I do have goes to the kids. I went to the court house to file for custody but they gave me a website. I know NOTHING about the law!! I need help!!!!
