Hi all! I'm grandparent seeking custody
« on: Jul 03, 2019, 10:02:08 PM »
Not sure if I'm doing this right, but it stated at the top to create an introductory post.

I am a grandmother that filed (Jan 19) for sole legal and physical custody of the grandchild that I have been raising over 8 years.

Parents showed little interest until I filed for CS last year.

I can't afford an attorney so I am going pro se'. My case involves 3 states.

Wish me luck!

Are the parents fighting for custody now? How old is child? At any point you can ask to stop hearing and say you would like time to get lawyer. Also, you may qualify for free legal aid at family court. In my state, the state child support office will file child support for you if you have anything saying you had custody now. Good luck!

The child is now 8. Father now claiming he wants custody, but really doesn't wish to pay CS. I have an order for CS against biomom for $199 monthly as of Jan 2019.

Thanks for the suggestions and well wishes!

Did father serve you custody papers? If this hearing is for your child support, then that is what the judge will want to hear and not deal with custody until papers are in front of him. Does dad have/take any visitation now?
