she is homeless living house to house with an infant, and someone told her they are filling a 51A /calling DSS on her and complaining of her lack of being a mother, and drinking with her children around. Can't i rely on maybe WIC, welfare (after having custody), or just say i'm currently looking for a job, which i am, (if getting custody of her child without any income would be a problem). My mother would help me with baby expenses. I currently do not have any living expenses, and have somewhere for the baby to sleep/live. She is willing to give me the child, i am not trying to forcibly take the child. The father of the child is unknown. Is there ANYTHING i can do, even if its temporary custody? also would we need to go to court or any lawyers involved, because we can't afford them.
