Hello i am very loving, ambitious and desperate mother seeking answers for child custody or abandonment. I left my country with my child last 2010-in the hands of my exes grandparents due to financial difficulties. But before i left-i let my ex husband sign an affidavit stating that my sole purpose is to provide a better future for my kid and not abandon her, and he did sign. that my kid will be on the care of either my mom or his dad. when i was in the u.s. i send her monthly money for her school, call her 5 times a week and if i have extra, sends her gift/package. i kept all my receipts. Her grandpa would sometimes threaten me that he may file a child abandonment when he gets mad, and just to be sure what are my rights as her mother? I am planning to petition her and join with me.
