I'm not sure what kind of advice you are looking for.......Is there anyway you can get back close to your family?  It's going to be really tough on you not having a job or a car.  If you are fighting for custody, what are your chances of winning?  I'm just wondering from the outside or a judges side, how would you provide for your child (ren) with no job?

Sorry you are going through that but again, I understand you're getting help BUT would you be able to take care of your child on your own?  As in paying for daycare while you're in school, paying rent/mortgage, etc?  This is all things a judge will look at and ask you about.

hugs  I'm sorry you're feeling so stressed out.

I know u are trying to finish school but know that u must get a job and move back to where u have family. U better get a job because u need to prove to the judge that u can take care of your kid(s) . Its going to be hard but YOU CAN DO IT.

Lots of women start new chapters in their life with nothing but a good friend, the diligence to move forward and the courage to face the adversity. You can do it just like others before you but you need to have income and a stable place to stay. And you must realize that if the dad petitions for custody you will have to have a way to be present for all the scheduled hearings and mediations.
