It has been over a yr since my deadbeat ex dropped my son off in the middle of the night in a parking lot half clothed. Ever since he hasn't tried to contact him at all. No phone calls, cards, nothing! My son doesn't ever want to see him again which is understandable.
I know that I need to contact an attorney and I will when I can come up with the funds, but do you think I will have a good chance to have the orders modified for me to get sole custody since he basically abandoned his child??
I want to get something in place just in case something were to happen to me. It scares me at the thought of him going over there. Especially knowing at how he feels about his dad. I think about that stuff now because with my sister's passing her son had to go with her ex husband.
Just needing some thoughts on it. Thanks!!!

Laws vary by state. Call your local bar assoc. to get a free or low-cost referral for a consultation w/ a family lawyer, to get some direction on this. Maybe a local college law school could help you prepare the paperwork or give you some guidance. Stories like this make me so sad that these men can just disregard their own flesh & blood. GL to you & your child.
