While I was in prison for 3 years, my wife was staying with my parents. I live in Illinois. They kicked her out of the house and would not let her take our 2 year old son with her. I was in prison in Illinois for robbery and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
I tried to go get him after my release, with police escorts. the very next day they went and started paperwork for gaurdianship. In this paperwork they claimed to have no idea as to my whereabouts. I got a lawyer. the lawyer got me some visitation for a while. 2 years later. I was visiting 2 times a month for 8 hours. Needless to say after 2 years I've aquired a very large legal service bill. The case has made no progress aside from the visits. My lawyer resigned. She claimed irreconciable differences. I have no money to pay a new lawyer. I owe her over$400 and the Gaurdian ad-litem over $700. The place my son is in is where I was abused physically and mentally for the greater part of my life. Please help me. How can I continue this case on my extra-sensitive budget? I need some advice as to how to proceed.
