I was getting regular visits with my boys when their mother decided to take them from me again. This has been going on for years and always went back to court and got make up time. This last time, I had it, I got pushed over the edge, I went into a depression. I have had regular visits with them for about 2 years. I see them though on Holidays because she lets them go with my parents and I see them there. I am in a better place where I can hire a lawyer and I want to know if I can get my visits back or more. My boys are 15 and 12. I might want to look into custody maybe even too. The mother of my boys doesn't work and when she does it last 2 months or less. They are living in a very cramped house with her mother. I am upset because the grandmother is raising them when it should be me.I graduate college with my B.A. degree in Criminal Justice in 6 months. I am in a job now making $18/hr and I feel I can provide more stability for them than she can. She has moved in with several guys in the past year and moves the boys in and when they break up, they are back at her mothers. She has lost her home and vehicles doing this and not working. I know my sons will put up a fight just because right now where they are at, they don't get discipline. They can do whatever they please and stay out until however long. My 15 year old has been getting in trouble in school, getting caught with weed, and staying out until 2 am or 3 am with no consequences. What can I do?
