Background: Father of our son got full temporary custody due to domestic abuse situation I was in. I already went to hearing to fight it and lost, judge would not listen to my witnesses or verify the abuser was in prison even though he was convicted that morning. I have jumped through all hoops I can possibly think of. Son's father now saying Im on drugs. I am so anxious, depressed, and lost without my son I need help. Ive lost hope. Please any ideas?
Resources I've attempted to use but got turned down Legal Aid (wont help because its custody). Access the Law (all booked up), Modest means (due to complexity of case the situation and my lack of finances the few attorneys Ive met with via this means has turned me down).
I am just so sick to my stomach with all of this right now. Any ideas on how to find legal representation with little to no funds would be helpful. ( I am waiting on a bit of money from my grandmother's estate that I could pay with but that wont be for about a year until I get it).
Thanks for your suggestions, ideas and help
