I ended up homeless and penniless with unfair supervised visitation( due to drug use allegations) I passed a drug hair test. No pther orders, Because Ive had no money. He has actively alienated me from my children . and destroyed my life
This is no longer about the divorce. Your battle now is to modify the court orders with regard to the children.
Find an attorney to help you with that. If you can't afford an attorney then talk to Legal Aid.
Knowledge is power. Hire a professional to listen to all of the facts and help you make informed decisions.
You can file to modify the court orders regarding the children. You can file a petition for bill of review if you can prove fraud or other equitable grounds unmixed with fault on your part. You need to consult family law counsel. Time is of the essence. First question is whether a divorce decree has been signed and when. Take decree and all orders to counsel to review and advise you. Get help for the problems identified. If you have gotten help and gotten off the mat, try to undo what was done or modify your parent-child relationship.
