Who do I contact about child custody?

I have temporary full custody because there is a no contact order and a protection order against my ex because of domestic violence. However, I want to make it final and I don't know where to begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am doing this on my own. Thanks!

  • You need to speak with a lawyer to make sure that you do everything you can and need to do legally to keep him out and keep full custody. You also should get child support if you arent already.

  • The protection order is a restraining order.... I am so broke so a lawyer is out of the question unless it is free or VERY cheap
