Judge changed custody from me to mom, based off a few bit of things. One, the fact that I got married to my wife on short notice, and 2, in a unaware phone recording, I joking said i would plant thc on the mom, and 3, because he believes she would work with me more to hear and see my daughter verses me with her. However, the mom has exposed my daughter to domestic abuse repeatedly, has not taken care of her medically where I have 100's of dr visits correlating with me getting her back from her moms, as well as I have had more time with her from when she was a baby, because her mom left her more than once to move to the other side of the state. Here i have my wife, 2 step brothers, and another baby on the way. Her mom just has her, and another daughter. Her mom makes more money, but I have had a stable house since 2014, as well as a military pension. Anyway, my attorney didn't bring out all the evidence i don't believe, and i would like to appeal pro se. Thank you for the help!
You really need to get an attorney for this. Your appeal must go to the South Dakota Supreme Court. Yes, there is a filing fee. I don't know that there is a specific form out there. The odds are greatly against you if you don't have an attorney. You might even lose on default if you don't follow all the technical rules required by the South Dakota Supreme Court in your paperwork and your brief.
