Anyone know of a good custody attorney that will take payments? Was going to use the low income in Chillicothe but my ex used them before and they won't work with me.

You don't need an attorney. Do it yourself, go to the public library in the county you divorced in and request the papers. They are behind the desk in a notebook. Copy them with direction. Get the right pack, with or without agree between parents. Following instructions, they are simplified. File thru courts. DO NOT ALLOW THEM to tell you you can't. I know for a fact you can. Less than 5.00 for packet and less than 50.00 to file. Good luck!

She is like 300 something an hour. We were never married and I have shared parenting but she is trying to take that from me cause I got her contemp of court for with holding our daughter from me. I'm supposed to get her this week and she basically said she's not giving her to me even tho it's ordered. I even tried calling 2-3 days this week to be able to talk to my daughter but she won't let me

If you're a pos shit it will take more than paying some lawyer. Come on ppl... be a parent and the custodial parent wouldnt make you fight. You lose.

I'm not a pos and the judge was on my side when we went to court and my ex got pissed at that do she's trying to take my shared parenting away. All I want is to be in my kids life and be able to be her dad without the mom interfering. I just don't have 300 something to pay out every hour or 2000 to put down right now. And I had Jim Jill but then my ex used him in a different case so now I can't use him against her. She's used about every attorney in cville and some in chilli

It is a hard, but good fight you are fighting. Stinks that the system so favors the mom. Have you tried legal aid yet? Is the case in Pickaway county? Need more details to help. Calling the sheriff will not help. They will tell you that you just need to go to court again, however it is good to have it on record. Also, make sure to save any text messages or voicemails from your ex as they are allowed to be presented to the judge as evidance.

It's pickaway county and the legal aide in Chillicothe won't help me because they helped her before. I make reports and save voice mails texts and record our conversations. She's violated the court order on over 5 different issues. I'm supposed to get her tonight but she told me yesterday that I'm not going to get her.

From what I heard as of January 1, 2013, Legal Aid no longer represents anyone in child/divorce (domestic issues). However every other month they hold a workshop to help you fill out papers. Call CASA to find out the dates. Hope that helps some.

L. Jackson Henniger & Assoc. in Logan is supposted to be good. I know he takes cases in Hocking and Fairfield Counties, but I'm not sure about Pickaway. Give him a call and see - if he doesn't then as him for a referal.

Here are the forms that I believe you need to file for the contempt charges. Please call the judge's office and confirm that these are all you need prior to making the trip down to file them. Good Luck!!

Also, you can file for emergency custody (VERY hard to get) if your ex has said or hinted at taking off with your child. If granted you will have the child right away for approx. 2 weeks until you both can appear in front of the judge to tell your side of the story. Are you trying to take custody from the mother, or go for share parenting? If you are you have to file custody forms at the same time you file the above forms.

Thank you all so much! I'm filing another contemp of court first thing in the morning. I was supposed to get her at 6 and the mother denied me she even told the cop she's not giving me my daughter so he told her ages in trouble. We have shares parenting she doesn't want me to have it and wants to file full and sole custody. Long story short she's not supposed to move out of county but has and kept my daughter from me for a year I find where she lives she moves. My daughter went to 6 schools in one year and was failing school. She then came back into my life and then held her from me again that's why u filled the contempt. The judge agreed with me and my ex even took her out of state a few time without me knowing. I'm a good dad I just don't have the $ to fight like she does cause someone else is paying for her. By the way the reason she moves out of county is cause our daughter was placed with me for a year because if child abuse charges on my ex then they have her back and she took off.
