Trying to get half custody
The father of my child (ex-boyfriend) has had full custody since our daughter was born on October 1, 1998.
As I have had visitaion every weekend for the last year. (According to his schedule)The reason being, I was young and had no means to support a child, now I have a job, very independent and I feel I can now take the responsibility of my daughter. At least half custody.
back in 1999 he tried relinquishing my rights before I was seeing the baby, I have filed a motion to modify this so it never went through and I now have a hearing set in a couple weeks. I spoke with an attorney because I know he is going to fight it and she advised me that basicly I have no chance in getting half custody because the baby is only 2. Is this true and should I look for a different attorney?
