What's best for Ben

Organized by: Amanda Bull

THE STORY:

I had my son two weeks after turning 18 years old. His father said he would step up, and never did. Ben's dad abandoned him at 3 weeks old. He has never paid child support, and has never spent more than a couple hours supervised with Ben at a time. After 17 months, he finally saw his son again. He agreed to sign the paperwork to give me full custody and allow him supervised visitation to get to know Ben. Then changed his mind and said he wouldn't pay child support if he didn't have joint custody. If he wanted custody, he should have stayed in his life over the past year and a half. I will not give my son to a stranger every other week. A stranger that doesnt have a car, doesnt have a bedroom for a child, and lives with a convicted felon. I desperately need help to keep my son with me. I don't want him to be taken from the home he's spent every night of his life in. I want him to be in Ben's life, but it's a process of getting to know his son. I have worked a full time job, while going to college full time, to support myself and give Ben the best life I can. Along with my car payment, insurance, groceries, and daycare bills, I cannot afford the attorney fees to battle his dad. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Amanda

As a mother going through a very very similar situation I completely know what it is you are going through. I wish you the best of luck. I know of a good attorney. Her name is Allison Forman. She's very understanding and very good at her job. If you don't have an attorney in mind I would highly suggest her. 1 year ago
