Search for a lawyer too!! I'm a legal assitant, and believe me, lawyers listen to your case and take into consideration your financial status. If he has already filed, and there is a court date set, have her get the case continuance. She must go to the court house and file a "motion for continuance", she can have the case extended. What is the basis for him requesting custody??? If he has none, lawyers are quick to agree to an agreement! He lawyer that she finds should not have a consultation fee, that's when you know they're good, they don't need the money!!!!
