I am a mother of 3 children. I was not married to the father of the younger 2. We argued A LOT. The kids and I moved to another apartment 8 months ago, and up until last month their father was not ordered to pay child support or under any visitation rights. I did everything for my kids and even had to beg him to keep them on weekends. He filed a petition for legitimation and was awarded visitation and joint legal custody. But a few weeks ago I lost my job and have had a horrible time paying bills. I am originally from NY living in GA, and I know of places that would hire me in NY and have found a much cheaper apartment to live in there since I'm being evicted. Will I face charges of contempt of the order? I've given him enough notice...will I lose custody of my kids?
