I am currently in the middle of a divorce, My 2 year old son and I live with my brother, I have no job although I am trying very hard to get one. I just received a decree in the mail from my stbx's lawyer. He wants my son to live with him, and give me every other weekend. I have been everything to this little boy since the day he was born. I quit 2 jobs to be stay at home when my ex and I were together. I gave up my dream of becoming a doctor in the best interest of my son. When my ex and I were together, he ignored our son, yelled at him for doing things babies do, and just all around was a terrible father. Now he wants to take him away from me to complete his "family vision" with his new gf (whom he's had since before I moved out). I gave him reasonable parenting time on weekends and even during the week occasionally. He works 4 am to 4 pm and most saturdays. He was never around, I raised this kid myself. He also accused me of dropping my son off with my dad just so I can go out clubbing. I spend every other weekend with my dad so he can see his grandson, and lives kinda far. twice I went out after my son went to sleep in the care of my dad and his gf and I always came home that night and took care of my son in the morning. My friends posted pics on facebook so that's how he knows. I need help. I can't lose my little boy, he is everything to me and I'm everything to him. He never asks for his father or even gets excited when he sees him. It is obvious how much he loves me bc I have done everything for him. Does my ex have a good chance at taking him away? I want to hire a great lawyer, at any cost, I will find a way to pay for them. But I can't let this happen. Any advice???
