I have had legal/physical custody of my child for three years. his dad has been absent for the last two years, no child support no phone call no visitaion. no nothing. I have been the one to put effort in in letting him know of my childs well being. we went to mediation, mediation said i still need to have sole physical and sole legal custody, he didnt agree we went to trial. in the trial the judge granted him joint legal custody. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY when i make my appeal to change the judges mind. he didnt listen to me in court. he DID listen to my ex when he ranted on about how he KNOWS he hasnt been around, he HAS a criminal background, and hes cleaned up now so NOW he wants to be part of my sons life. I have done nothing wrong, always been the one raising my son.
