My mom filed 3rd party custody of my children and I only made it to the first two. Now we only have left is the tbd settlement. Does this mean that I lost the rights to my children? And how can I get visitation and an attorney that’s free where would I go?
To determine the legal status of your case, you should refer to the documents on file with the court.
I cannot tell you the status of your case or the status of your parental rights as I do not know what orders or findings were made in the hearings you did not attend (nor do you); and yo do not say in your post what did transpire at the hearing you did attend. I can tell yo that it will not and does not do you any good to fail to appear, even if you do not have a lawyer.
You need to go down to the courthouse, get the file form the clerk's office and review the orders in the file and any clerk notes to see where this matter had gone.
I also strongly suggest that you buy some lawyer time to have them review the status of your case and point you in the right direction; and I'd do this sooner as opposed to later. If yo cannot pay for a lawyer I'd go on line and google Pro Bono or free legal services; and you can also call the local county state bar association and see fi they have referrals for "Pro Bono (free) lawyers. You could also ask the court to appoint one for you as the proceeding intend to take away your parental right, though I suspect this will not be successful.
