Im a single mom (or shall I say I was until about 6 months ago) to my 3 year old son since he was about 1 1/2. His father called the police on me and had me removed from the house and for about 2 or 3 months we lived in hotels and with friends while I saved up enough to get an apartment. When I did we lived in my apartment for about 2 years before moving in with my fiance. Over the course of having my son, I've had numerous jobs, trying to increase my pay as much as possible because I was soley caring for my son and the cost of living and his childcare was adding up because I didnt recieve child support from his biological dad. I recently quit my job because it was a manual labor job and I am currently preganat. I am of course looking for part time work, just to keep busy and help my fiance out so he doesnt feel the weight of our family on his shoulders, but so far I havent been successful. My fiance is trying to get legal guardianship of my son so he can add him to his insurance through his job. I know that the courts will want to background check us (our records are spotless no tickets arrests, nothing) we've both always worked and have educations, but with me not currently working and having had numerous job would that count against us for gaining full custody. My sons bio father does not work has no place to stay, prior domestics, was just released from prison on a felony drug charge for the 3rd time, and has never paid child support. We live in Georgia and are 23 and 25 in our own house, no convictions, no drugs, no domestics. Is it possible we would win?Answer Question
