So Me and my 18 month old have never been seprated since day one. Well her father has been in and out her life (he is an old field worker). Well I moved out for the second time a little over a week ago. Well at that time he only wanted weekend with her when he was off and if he had a day here or there. Which was ok with me. I dont wanna take her away from him. Well he got mad at me and told me I was a piece of s*** and he was gonna sign his rights away (I have this in a text message). Now he has a lawyer and wants full custody. I am scared he will run with her so I am not letting him see her til after court. Which he told me if i dont work with him he will not work with me and will take her from me. He has never really spent much time with her. When I moved the first time he only came and seen her 1 time out of the 4 or 5 months we was gone. I can count the number of diapers he has changed on one hand. He never got up with her at night. Rarely fed her as a baby. He has the money for all the court stuff as i do not. We are suppose to have a meeting for child suppport and what ever they set up visitation wise. We were never married so in texas i have full custody. Well he is gonna bring his lawyer so he can try to get it dismissed til court. He skipped tryin medation and everything. Iwanna say all this is out of madness and not wanting to pay child support. His sister has even made the comment she doesnt want him to take her from me. He is a drinker and has anger issues. Thinking maybe bi polar.... I have no one really to talk to about this... PLEASE HELP... Thank you in advance!!!
He is the only one with a lawyer at this point.

Do you have a lawyer? I am pretty sure you can get one for free. Also unless you have a serious drug or mental problem they probably won't give him full custody but he might get visitation. Document everything, keep all texts, emails, and communication that will help your case. Good luck.

See about contacting legal aid and getting a lawyer to represent your side in this.
