When you say you lost custody, are you saying that your child's father filed a custody petition, there was a trial and the court issued a final order of custody? Or, are you saying that social services removed the child from your care or that custody was transferred by some other means?
If it is the former, you would have to petition the family court to modify the custody order and allege a change of circumstances. If it is the latter, the answer may be more complex. Either scenario represents a challenging situation for which the assistance of an attorney may be required.
