I need advice...a free consultation...PLEASE!!!

Asked about 1 year ago - Sacramento, CA

Custody of my child was taken by a judge who didn't even review my documents proving that I have been the sole provider and only participating parent because I used the term "my son". His father had not been an active part of his life. There was never an "ours". He is being taken care of by his grandparents now, not his father. Now that family is making false accusations to the welfare dept for a period of time (5 yrs ago) that I was falsifying information to collect aid. I believe these are tactics to further impugn me in front of the custody court. I told the truth in court, I had documentation, the judge did not care. I was underage, my son is the product of statutory rape. I have never wanted to hurt this man, but his abuse current actions have me scared. What do I do? Help!
