Legal Question

Asked on: 4/15/02, 3:16 pm

I lost custody because of a mental illness...

In November of 2000, I had a nervous breakdown due to my ignorance of bi-polar/manic depression. Trusting my ex-husband,{like an idiot}, I called him asking for help with our 3 children while I received proper medical treatment. In less than 10 days he filed an emergency ex parte for sole custody, claiming mental incompetence, drug abuse, and many other untruths. I have been taking the proper medications and seeing a psychiatrist and a counselor every month for 18 months now and I still am unable to see them on a regular basis because of their father. I need legal help desperately-I want my children back home.

P.S.-Before this, I had custody for six years with no interference or accusations before.

Thank You
