My ex boyfriend is taking me to court for sole custody of our baby.Can he get a free lawyer or does he have to pay for one?He rarely works,has no money,and lives with his brother and sleeps on his couch.

He will not get a court-appointed lawyer and will have to hire one, if that's what you mean. Of course there's always a slim possibility that he could talk someone into representing him for free but it's unlikely. I would hire a lawyer to defend you though in any case since the custody of your child is at stake.
