So I live in Ohio right. I broke up with my old man, we were not married but lived together. We made a verbal agreement about our son. He was supposed to have him until the end of this month and then bring him back to me. Now he is saying he will not bring him back. Does anyone know if in the state of OH there is anything I can do through the courts without the father to get my son?Answer Question

File for custody and support. You need to get your child back. He could keep the child and file for custody and support from you first. When you file make sure you ask for an emergency temporary order.

Forget pro bono. It takes too long and may be hopeless. If you want your kid you need a lawyer. The lawyer can file for the father to pay your fees. If that can't be done in your state then start selling stuff to get money. Get an extra job. Go on craigslist and say you will clean houses and pull weeds. Anything. Borrow money.
Go to the courthouse or wherever they do child custody and support in your county today and find out if there is any way you can file without a lawyer.
