The mother of my brother's daughter gave birth to her while in prison for child abuse charges. She turned the baby over to my brother 2 days after she was born and he has been raising her for 3 years now, on his own.
There was contact between the two of them at the beginning but she has only written to the baby twice and hasn't tried to contact my brother since.
She will be getting out of prison in January, 2009 and he received a letter from the State of Arizona stating that she wants her daughter back when she gets out. She also has 2 other children she will be fighting for (each with a different father).
My brother recently moved to Texas to start a new life and is doing great but can't afford a lawyer so he called Legal aide and was told that because she has a case with them they can't help because it would be conflict of intrest.
Is there anyone here who knows where he can go to get help with this issue?
try your local law library its filled with info I think he can file for full custody before she gets out I know this is not much help but the law library helped my sister a lot good luck
