August 17 was the worst day of my life. My ex husband and I went to court to finalize a 3 year long custody dispute. We have been doing shared parenting for 3 years and living 40 miles away. My oldest daughter is starting kindergarten this year, so a decision had to be made as to where they were going to live. Some history is, I left my ex husband 3 years ago because he was abusive towards me, physically, emotionally and verbally, was arrested for domestic violence when I was pregnant with my youngest daughter and was a control freak who lied. I moved out of his hometown to go back to my hometown. We had agreed on a dissolution and had everythign worked out; custody, bills, house, etc. The SOB then went behind my back and filed for divorce and was granted temporary custody. We went to court for an "emergency cusotdy hearing" (my girls were 1 and 3!!!) The judge (from his town) arranged "shared parenting". We had a guardian ad litem come in later and suggest to continue shared parenting and modified the schedule.

On AUgust 17, we went back to court, in his town because that is where jurisdiction is and went to trial. After a day long ordeal, the judge gave his ruling "The mother would better facilitate visitations, the childrens best interest would be served with their mother BUT they were born and brought home to be raised in this town so they are going to stay here!"

My life has been completely taken away from me. My daughters who are now 4 and 6, have been ripped away from their mother. I might add that I am re-married to a wonderful man and I am 6 months pregnant. My docter had worte me off work because I haven't been able to handle the stress of this situation. And now I know I have means to appeal and plan on fighting 100%. Mother who are prostitutes, sell drugs while their children are in the home, who abuse their children get more rights than I do. Is there anyone out their who can help me or send me in the right direction because I was dealt a raw "good 'ole boy deal"?????

If you want your kids back move back to where they live and refile asking the judge to give you the kids back. That is all you can do, and get a good lawyer. As a mother myself I'd do anything to get my kids back so I'd move anywhere to make that happen.
