    Just had my parental rights terminated...

    I have been fighting a custody case for my daughter against the state since December 10th, 2015.

CPS showed up...

    Does the man have a choice?

    Hey guys. So, long story short, it is what it is, I had a one night stand, six years ago, which resulted in a beautiful, amazing, brilliant baby boy. The man I slept with gave me a fake name when we were together, so I spent four years turning the world upsidedown to find him based upon this fake name, with no results, obviously. Then I ran into him in town, four years ago, and asked him over (he...

    Supervised visits without proof of abuse

    Is it possible to get custody with supervised visits if evidence of sexual abuse by the father is inconclusive? My 4 year old spontaneously told me my husband touched her private parts. The incident was reported but not enough evidence surfaced to prove it happened. Do I have any chance of getting supervised visits or will my asking for this likely backfire and lead the court to say I am unfit as...

    Custody fight over 14yo

    I am the mother of a 14yo son who is now stuck in the middle of a custody fight. My ex decided to do drugs and have an affair 10 years ago so we divorced. He has since lived with and been involved with 3-4 other women. He has never been alone and just leaves one woman's house and moves right in with a new one. He married one of his coworkers about 16 months ago and this allows for a much better...

    I've been going through custody issues with my family. I allowed my mom and father in law to regain custody of my kids because I was trying to get on my feet. Since then (even though judge granted me visits) they have made excuses to keep me from my children. My kids feel caught in the middle and I feel confused lost and frustrated with the whole situation. Its breaking me down everyday and idk...
