How can I get sole custody of my kid to protect her from the horrible environment her mother would place her in if she has to live with her mother? Also is there a way that I can get the state to not force me to pay an exorbitant amount of child support if I'm not able to get custody so that I may be able to afford to meet my basic living expenses?
Divorce has not yet been filed. We are still living together but I've been looking for a place to live based on my soon to be ex demanding this. There is nothing I can afford on my salary however in the area where I live & I.have no friends or family here to turn to. Is there anything that I can do to get help somewhere? I've tried calling the local housing authority but they have a 3 year waiting list and there is nowhere that I've found that I can afford. My biggest concern in all of this is the needless exposure to disease & pestilence that my kid will face when she is in the horrid conditions of.compulsive hoarding and nastiness that her mother insists on living in. What can I do with little money to hire an attorney so.that I may protect my daughter? I currently am the only one doing cleaning in the home and I know that this will stop as soon as I leave. I'm also going to be forced to leave because the house we're living in belongs to my soon to be ex wife's mother and the mother is just like my soon to be ex about hoarding. They have already threatened to take action to throw me out of the house if I don't move out by the end of July. What can I do with little money in this situation?
Is there anything that I can do in the immediate timeframe to provide protection for my child? It is not that I want to move out of state, but because I have no support network here I have no other options that I can see. What can I do now as I'm forced out of the home to protect my child?
Ok so prepare to provide proof that the home is unsafe and that I have a place where my child may live. What exactly will the court demand that I show of my living situation to allow my child to be with me?
Ok is a 1 bedroom with the room for the child going to be sufficient or are they going to demand more?
Ok so let's say I'm forced out of state due to the current circumstances and cannot stay due to finances, but in a few months I'm on my feet in a one bedroom. If the ex in those months files for divorce what can I do in the future when reestablished to try to improve things for my child?
I've already tried the pro bono attorneys to no avail. Thank you for your help. Is there anything else you would suggest?
