my girlfriend got pregnant - had the baby - after she had the baby we both took care of
the baby then after a year she enrolled in the service and turned over the boy (whom is
30 years old now) to her mother
after living with her 2 years. I bought a lot of the essentials early on and would take
to the grandmothers house. Later I went on to marry another woman and we had a daughter. My daughter is 21 and has her bachelor's and working on her masters.
I mention this because I am not a deadbeat.
I filed for custody because when she left (she really didn't want the responsibility) I wanted to care for him. Instead of letting me fight for custody she took him to Hawaii
When she returned (approx. 3-4 years) she got an apartment and I helped furnish his
room but he did not live there since still living with his grandmother. The court granted her custody and ordered me to pay child support
which I did for a while.
He lived with his grandmother before she left and after she returned.
She dropped the case in 08 and I assumed that was it. The interest has kept accumulating since we thought the case was dropped. I received a letter from the state
of Va stating the case was dropped.
Now my dillema is that now she is 4 times divorced and needs money so she re-opened
the case in Alabama and attached to my va driver's license so I cannot drive on even
a restricked license. I can't afford not to work and as a result I lost my job because
it entails driving a utility work vehicle.
I was told by an attorney at the court house that she did not raise after 3-4 years old
and why is it her suing me since it was his grandmother that raised him.
Please help with your expert advise and how can I get someone to represent me since
I don't have a lot of funds.
Thank you for your time and help!
