I am newly divorced and my seizures now consist of "unawareness", I can't talk and get confused and I know what I would like to say. After physical, mental & verbal abuse by my ex, he took our daughter from idaho to his mother in mi. I followed them to mi (all family lives here) after I filed for "ppo" personal protection order againist him, he filed for custody and that I have supervised visits, stating "i was a flight risk" I do not drive due to seizures and I have so much evidence againist him. Everytime I called my attorney she would not call me back (for 3 months was the last time). When I would meet with her, I would get so upset talking about how my ex- hurt myself and our daughter and I would become confused and would not be able to stay on the subject she would be on. I was told to settle out of court. My ex black mailed our daughter that I was the bad mom. I would take care of her while he was out of state and every other day, he would egnore us and did not care if daughter was around to see or hear what abuse he did to me.
Now our daughter is stuck with her dad, she hids in her room from him. Her dad talks negatively about me all the time and will not help with transporation, even though he knows I do not have help. He still tells her is going to kill himself if she asks to be with me (when she is sick or any other time; "it is not my day with her"
i need help getting her out of her dad's house and I cannot have joint custody, he makes all the rules and hurts everyone in the process.
I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. If your current attorney is not helping, is there a way to secure another one? If you feel she is being abused, she can call child protective services or tell a teacher or counselor at school so they can investigate.
I would think the best thing you can do right now is take the best care of yourself that you can. If you can get the best control possible it might help your case.
Also have someone you trust go with you to attorney appts to help?
Hang in there. I know you are grieving for your child....
I have called cps when my ex had knifes in the bathroom and threatened to kill himself; after our daughter told him she would like to live with me, their response was that it did not need to be investigated. So I will not be calling cps. I need a attorney's help so much and I get turned away by legal aid, they are not going to waist their time on a little case like transportation, when I just learned of a taxi $48.00 round-trip to pick up our daughter, when her dad has a car and can transport her, I have tried telling him I would pay the gas money, he refuses to help. Living on social security alone, I cannot afford to pay $96.00 a week to pay the taxi. Everywhere I turn someone gives me phone numbers for legal help and not one number helps. :(
