was married for 9 yrs,our son is 7.ex was mentally &verbally abusive to me in front of our son.became physical,kicked me out w/ nothing took my car away. I am disabled, was in bad car wreck 4 years ago but draw disability.moved into 1room apt that I felt was unsafe for my son to be at but was all I could afford at the time. SO I HAD to let my son stay with him. He filed for divorce and we went to the temporary hearing in Dec.I agreed to supervised visitation at my mom's house every other weekend.Now circumstances have changed,I rented a 3bd 2th clean nice home for us and I want to get joint custody but my ex refuses to talk to me,tells everybody I just left our son and making me look awful when it was ALL him.He has a job,$ and lawyer.He wants it to stay the same but my son even wants me?I don't have $ for a lawyer and he refused to go to mediation. We both have raised our son but I was the one who always took care of him. My ex is a total control freak and IMPOSSIBLE so I don't know whats gonna happen. I have no criminal history, can pass a drug test, suitable loving home but he still thinks HE is gonna get full custody. What CAN I DO???? And he is keeping the house, car everything!
