Asad Rahman or whomever it may concern - about the custody

Asad Rahman or whomever it may concern - It's me again about the custody issues with my ex trying to keep my kid when I had issues with and I have epilepsy.You said: For the visitation hearing you can file your own motion in the courthouse it's called a motion to enforce.The hospital papers are most likely a paternity acknowledgment right?Me: Yes, etc. etc.You: You file on your own at your local court. You ask the court to set visitation and establish a schedule. You need a valid judge's order.File for custody on your own. Ask the court clerk for the correct paper work.A fiance's income should not factor into your eligibility but if he can help you it would be best to hire an attorney.This last statement you made was what I believed as well. I also did not think I necessarily needed a lawyer for a custody hearing. My question/s is/are:So, in order to get a valid judge's order to file to set custody and visitation, don't I have to set the court date in which I need a valid judge's order? This is where I am confused. So I'm asking my local clerk for the correct paperwork for what exactly since I don't have the valid judge's order until I go to court? I feel like I'm chasing my tail. It's so frustrating. Not your fault. Just the way they have it set up.
