The problem is my ex-husband's wife is filing tomorrow to get full custody of my son. They supplied him with a cell phone to speak with an attorney and coached him, what to say to a counselor. I wanted to know if this legal for an attorney to do this without my knowledge, and threats are being made by ex and wife and son
There are a couple other factors, you see being a cancer patient, and survivor, they are using that as well. He wanted me to keep child support and give my son over to him, and he will still pay me. That is what he said, and if I didn't agree to his terms I cannot get anything. you see he quit and took a ten dollar an hour job so he didn't have to pay 15 hundred a month his attorney said he would have to pay for child support, I couldn't ask for spousal maintenance because he didn't have much to send, but I asked if I could reserve that right. Not only that my son wants to be there , because they will give him things I cannot afford. I had a restraining order, put on her, they retaliated by calling CPS several times. Will this help me in court? Legal aid only charges thirty five dollars, not their cost. What worries me is my son wanting to go there. And he stated they want to take him to New York far away from me
