i am a lesbian and a mother fighting for custody of my daughter. at the last court date the judge said that i cannot live with my girlfriend and have custody of galen because we are not married. we plan to go to iowa to get married but we don't know if the court system in oklahoma will accept it. my lawyer isn't helping and i can't afford a new one. plz someone give me some advice on how to fight this issue and get my daughter back without having to choose between the two ppl that make me happy in this world.

Wow...I am so sorry you are dealing with this...I don't really know what to tell you but, maybe try calling an organization like the HRC and see if they have any resources to help you out!

There are many gay supporting groups in every state. http://www.rainbowlaw.org/html/directoryOK.htm There are many attorneys on this page. It worths to call them up and ask what can you do:) I hope you will find a solution for your problem:) Hugs:)

That is ridiculous, since when do you have to be married to get custody of your child. Is there any way you can file a complaint against the judge? If your lawyer is helping I'd get rid of him. Good luck!!!
