Recently I have let my daughter live with her dad due to my circumstances.. and he backed me into a corner and got custody of my daughter .. I am so lost and torn without her I am just curious if I  have a chance at getting her back ...If anyone has advice for me i am a 23 year old mom just trying to make things right and get her home were she belongs.. i have went to free lawers and they were little to no help at all.

He got a lawer and knew that i couldnt afford one due to my recent car wreck and not having a stable job ,car or home . I had lost it all due to my car wreck ... i have been working hard to get it all back on track its just been super difficult with having him attacking me all the time about it.

Even if he has full custody you still have rights to see her....talk to legal aid and see what your options are.

Try to get joint custody first.

 if her situation is stable right now, you have an uphill battle. judges dont like to change a kids circumstances for no reason.
