My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Florida and Michigan
I was living in florida with my childs father when I became pregnant and gave birth to our son. Father and I have never been married and a custody agreement has never been put in place. Father had been cheating on me our whole relationship, I had no family and no support in Florida while living there. In November 2011, I took our 3 month old son back home with me to Michigan. I called the sherriffs office and they said this was completely safe to do and completely lawful. Now my childs father is trying to get sole custody of our son. He made up lies in his petition saying that im severly unstable psychologically and tried to say that I attempted suicide. I DID NOT attempt suicide, my doctor diagnosed me with PPD 4 weeks after our son was born and I am now taking anti-depressants. They also stated that they were the main caregivers for our son when that is completely false. I worked on the weekends so that I could take care of my son all week. I made this move to better myself and my son. I am currently enrolled in school and I have the support of my family to help me. Childs father is always out partying and playing games. My question is: will jurisdiction be held in Florida because thats where the father is and that is where our son was born? What can I do about him making up all of these lies on court documents?
