We have never been married but were together for a short time. I have let him see our son plenty of times but only a few by himself because he has threatened to take off with our son. Now he is taking me too court to fight me for custody. He has 4 DUI's and is now a felon. If he gets caught driving again without a license he goes to jail. Please help.
You need a good lawyer fighting for your custodial rights. The felony drunk driving convictions are relevant and will...
i received dui 7-25-13 and had 2 convictions ( both treated as 2nds) 10-2000 and 1 in 1996 making 4 total but only 1 in last 12.5 years will this be treated as 1st?

I got off work around 11 p.m. and headed home to Illinois to try and get home from the Holidays. Upon entering Illinois I got pulled over (Admittedly going 19 MPH Over Speed limit) in a rush to get home. He stated my car smelled like "Marijuana" and demanded I get out. He searched my vechicle and found a pill bottle that had shake under my prescription pills (it was a special unmarked bottle because in my culture you can't take pills) I didn't know it was there because I share the bottle with a roommate, but he arrested me and charge me with a DUI (After doing a sobriety test, which I passed). Obviously I am trying to fight this. There was also an open liquor bottle in the trunk I share the car with my sister who is 22 (I'm 20) and told them this but they charged me with a PAULA as well
Not sure what your question is but if you plan to fight it you will need a lawyer.
