I went to court and didn't have a lawyer as a result the father of my child braught up all of my past mistakes and history of going in and out of mental hospitals. And a recent stunt to jail for domestic violence assault. I am now seeing a court appointed psychologist to do an evaluation on me (at the expense of the father). After the judge see's the final report made by the psychologist, the judge will then proceed to make the final custody orders. What are my chances of gaining joint custody of my child? Right now the father has her temporarily while i have visitation rights. How do I go about gaining custody? Her father is a very violent man and has physically assaulted me on several occasions. I intend on representing myself in court. I miss my baby. She is only 3 months.
