No we were not married. Yes I am on the birth certificate
I understand all legal services are different in terms of cost depending on the attorney fees, in general is this specific process a very expensive one? I do want to seek full custody, do I need a lawyer or is there a simpler way to go about filing for custody? I do not have a lot of funds, and only want my daughter in better care than she is in. CPS wouldn't blink an eye at taking her from the custodians she has now.
thank you very much you have helped me a great deal to heading in the right direction!
