I was wondering if anyone knew a good lawyer for a child custody case? I need my son away from his mother, even though she rarely has him anyways!

well, my best advice is first find out what county it would be heard in and what judge. if you don't know how, you can usually call up any random attorney and ask, but make sure the consultation is free. once you find out the judge, find out who he plays golf with. go from there.

No judge is going to take a child away from the mother completely unless they can prove her unfit in some way, same goes for a father of a child. Most usually the only reason a judge will say a mother/father is unfit is if they are on drugs or they do not have a descent home for the child to live in or when the child comes and visits. What does the mother do that is so bad that you want to take her child away from her completely?

Lawyers for custody cases are very expensive. You are looking at spending any where from $3,000.00 to $5,000.00 dollars. That's for the good lawyers.

i have my son 70% of the time and when i dont have him someone else does. she stays out all the time partying. she is on drugs. her and her husband have an abusive relationship to each other. she has done lost custody of her other son from a different marriage years ago. she has no income coming in to support him. i think this would be enough for me to have custody of my son. what do u think

Well I had people testify that she did smoke pot in front of the children and lots of other things. She lays in bed and sleeps while a 5 year old and sibling put themselves on the bus on a main road while it is still dark outside while she lays and sleeps. She is not even employed. The child goes to school with no underware on nor socks, hair not even combed. Gets around 500 child support a month and the children look like orphans. The children have been left at home alone with a deadbolt on the door and no telephone to use in case of emergency...ages 3 & 8? and...just about any woman can lay down and have children, but it takes someone special to be a MOTHER. The older child has the burden to always take care of the younger child. This is not fair to either child. She was passed out once on the couch and a bottle of pills laying out on the coffee table while a 3 year old found him a piece of bread to eat in the kitchen....door wide open right out on the main road-close to that road....these are only just a few things....

Let's see, this is the same woman you bred, right? Couldn't see it coming ahead of time, before the sex? Man up, get you a good lawyer--even if you can't afford it..Borrow the money, work overtime, have the lawyer set payment up on a monthly schedule. Do whatever it takes to get custody, if what you say is true. Don't get on topix and whine and complain, that doesn't help your children in the least. It's going to take money for a good lawyer, so don't make excuses. I know there are two sides to every story, and it rarely is only one person to blame.

Duh, everybody can't see things coming ahead of time. Have you ever been fooled or conned by anyone in your life? If not, your extremely lucky!!!
