How do I get low income help with child custody battle?

Saint Louis, MO |
Filed under: Child custody

My ex is a class c felon. He is not fit to parent our child at all. I am low income. I go to school full time, and work part time. I get no financial help from my childs father. I can not afford to pay legal fees. I need sole custody of my child though, and he refuses to sign rights over so it's my only choice.

You may also want to ask the Missouri Bar Association whether there are any legal clinics in your area that offer services which may suit your needs.
