My son is 2 and a half. I have been with my boyfriend, the father of my son, until last November when I had to move out because of my boyfriend's irrationale behavior. I left my son with my ex-boyfriend and I have my son every day from 8am until 6pm M-F. My ex-boyfriend is trying to make me suffer because I broke off the relationship. There is a court hearing scheduled for February 2, 2011 where my ex-boyfriend is going to claim I am an unfit mother and get full custody of my son. I have a job, but I have no money saved to retain a good attorney to help me. What is likely to happen at this court hearing, and what can I do to postpone it to give me more time to hopefully get good representation?
