You have helped before, I hope you can help again. I filled custody on one child back in May (I have two children). things have changed drastically. We just finished mediation last week. I need to "file an amendment" to the custody papers I already filed and change it from one child to both. I do not have a court date yet. I tried to pay a few lawyers to write an amendment, but they refuse, unless I get them to fully rep me in the case. I asked the clerk for the proper papers to file. Of course they will not tell me a damn thing. So my question is, do I just take a copy the original papers I filed, add my other child and my reasons. Then go to the clerk and tell them this is an amendment, please attach to the file? Do I write the word amendment across the top? Please help direct me
