So most of you know that I'm fighting for custody of my nephew but I'm doing it by myself. I decided this morning I would call all the attorney's in the phone book to see if they did any pro bono work( pretty much free attorney) well not one of them did but one really nice lady that answerd the phone told me I could probley get a court appointed attorney and to call the clerk of courts. I called them and ask them and they told me to call juvinile(spelling?). So I did they told me to write a letter to the judge(which I already did) but they told me to write another asking to be a party of the hearing and request for a court appointed attorney. So I'm about to drop off another letter to the judge asking just that. I'm hoping its not to late since our hearing is January 23, but hopefully I'll have some help now because I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to dealing with the courts. I've never been in this situation before. I'm so confused and stressed. So just needed to vent and let everyone know whats going on.
There's SO much help out there and a lot if it can be free through public defenders and court clerks. I'm shocked that no one has led you to them before.
You absolutely need help and someone to help negotiate for you.
Did you look into family service before all this?
Dig in. Dig deep. There's help there for you. Get that letter in ASAP. Judge could hold off on decision maybe?
