My attorney prepped me Tuesday night, 10/9/17, and led me to

My attorney prepped me Tuesday night, 10/9/17, and led me to believe we are going to trial starting, 10/10/17, Wednesday and that my ex-husband and I would be on the stand to state our case in front of the Judge. Yesterday, 10/10/17, my attorney brought me into an empty court room and told me that he spoke to the judge and that this case is going to be set out until fall and that I need to let the kids live with their dad until we get this resolved or I need to move home and quit my job. I asked him how is this even a fair trial if they are discussing this with the Judge ahead of time? How can he lead me to believe that this was a trial and now they set it back? I told him he wasn't advocating for me and my children. I am a victim of domestic abuse as well as 2 of my childen have been abused by my ex-husband. He was prosecuted and charged. He is a registered on the Illinois Violent Offenders Website and was founded on Class 3 felony as well as 2 dcfs founded charges. I researched Illinois law and read that domestic abuse and child abuse are highly considered in custody cases. The attorneys were avoiding the judge and I know that he was is collusion with his attorney. Now I'm back to square one with no money. I do believe both acting Lasalle county attorneys are trying to get me to lose my job by buying time and keep continuing court cases.My attorney lied to me and mislead me and he was siding with my ex's attorney. I can't even tell you what I have to do next but talk to another attorney and seek as much advise as I can moving forward.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: this is a child custody cse caseJA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: I'm in Illinois, Lasalle county. This is a child custody case against my ex husband, convicted felon and child abuserJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: YesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
