My question involves a child custody case from the State of: PA
My sons father has been custodial parent of my two children for the last 3 years. I left them with their father because I had to get out of the relationship between us. During the last 3 years I haven't seen my kids much until recently I've been getting them on the weekends. This was because I moved to Chicago. He lives in PA and I now live in NJ. I found out he will be going to jail soon for 15 years for acts of fraud. We have been legaly divorced now for about a year and he has been re-married about 8 months.
Since he is going to jail now I want to get custody of my kids. I don't want his new wife to raise my children. I left my children with their father because he was a good father and financial secure. Does his new wife or anybody else have rights to my children? I can't afford a lawyer.
