I wanted sole custody for my child. I went to the family court and asked how I can make a petition.  I also whent to ask lawyer.com but that was paid for.  I will say that you have to know your state laws.  I drew up a a joint petition stating that my child's father agreed that I can have sole custody.  It took months of arguing to get him to sign it and it was only sign because it caused problems with the woman at home.  He signed it but I still have to wait to see what the judge says. I have to prove how it will be beneficial to my child for me to have sole custody.  The good thing I have going for myself is the nasty text messages of him denying his child and being that he never ask for her the times he did see her I would have to prompt him.  In other words you have to build your case as well.  I have lawyer representing me but if you doing it on your on you have to have your stuff together.  The judge is only seeing what is in the best interest of the child from their point of view they don't know your story and really don't care.  You have to make them care because if not you will walk in with hopes and walk out with joint custody.  So I suggest reading asking.

Hi ladies..im a newbie...im sort of lost and i guess looking for someone to vent to. I am 23 and 24 weeks preggo. The pregnancy was not planned, in fact i was only with the father for a lil over a month before i found out i was pregnant. Him and I obviously rushed because i was living with him within days of getting together. hes older, hes 35 and he seemed to really be attracted to me and i fell so in love with him. he was happy when i told him i was pregnant. but i guess after getting to know each other, he found that i was lacking what he was looking for in a woman. he claims that i am a great person that im the sweetest woman hes ever been with but im immature in some areas, well that may be but i dont think its fair for him to judge that so quickly considering the whole time we have been together i have been going through such an emotional rollercoaster being pregnant and going through all these changes. i am not pro-abortion but i did take a leap of faith by keeping her. He told me that he doesnt think its gonna work between him and i and that pretty much he wasnt "feeling" me anymore. is there someone else? i asked him a thousand times and he really seems to be truthful that its not that...i am positive he will be there to be in his daughters life , he has a 12 yr old son and he is his world...i dont have any worries about doing this by myself financially. i have never doubted that he will be there to be in her life. its just so hard dealing with this rejection because i feel so strongly for him,...and i know everything i feel she feels and that all this stress and anxiety and depression is soooooo bad for her but how do i just brush it off? i planned a life with this man and i trusted him. i know with time i will get stronger but for this moment its so hard. its hard to have to figure out how this is going to work being seperate. i want him to take me to the hospital when i go into labor..i want to go home with him and take turns waking up and feeding her.. i dont want him to miss out on her first months in this world because he knows he cant take her away from my side unti shes older. but no instead im staying on my moms couch(she already has my older brother and his two kids living here), he wanted me to stay at the place we had got together but how could i bear to look at him everyday knowing that hes not mine anymore? i tried for almost two weeks and i couldnt do it..it was too hard...i know i should be like"oh eff him i dont need him anyway" but i just cant seem to think that way..im so heartbroken because i do love this man. i just dont know how to feel. i know life is nothing like the fairytales we see on these movies but i always thought i would be with my children's father..its just such a dissappointment...im trying to be strong and just forget about him but its not that simple...im never going to  be a bitch and keep him away from her because my father wasnt around when i was growing up so if he wants to be in her life by all means please do because girls need their daddies. i guess time will heal these wounds... this is such a big lesson to be learned.  but i know after all is said and done i will be a million times stronger
