Hi! My name is Melissa Tanzer. I am 27 years old. At the age of 16 I created a beautiful baby boy that I named Donovan. He was the love of my life and I have never laid eyes on anything more precious and perfect than he is. As anyone can imagine the trials and tribulations of having a child at such a early age are strenious. Being a young mother with no one to turn to and no where to go he started to live with this grandparents. They told me dreams of going to church weekly and putting him in sports. None of those dreams came true and now I am constantly battling them to provide the necessities for my sons well being. In the several years my son has lived with them he has not been to the dentist. Two seperated times I have had to take him to the emergency room for simple medical care that could have been covered under his insurance that they have yet to provide me information on.

Now that I am in a better place and have the ability to care for him I am in need of a lawyer.

I work at one of the best companies in the country, with excellent health care and decent pay. I have not had any more children or any types of run ins with the law. There is no reason why my precious son cant live with me and have the proper care he deserves.

The only thing stopping me in the retainer fee that child custody lawyers are requring. Anything that can help this cause I would appreciate! A connection with a lawyer or even a penny. Whatever I can do to get my son back!

If you have any questions you can email me at

Thank you for your time!
