    My daughter is on life support and her father has primary custody of her. She is very ill and he refuses to let me see her.

    It might help - because if there are reasons why you don't have visitation it may be difficult for you to get even an emergency hearing.

    I was incarcerated for some time and when i got out she did'nt know who I was. She had been told this other woman was her bilogical mother and when i would try they would say it would confuse her too much. to wait till she would understand. So to not cause any friction or be seen as a bad person I let it be. Now she is very ill and the only one who can say wether or not i can see her is her father. The visitation was to be done between us and he never let me.

    I think you need to talk to a local attorney immediately.

    Visitation is generally meant to be in the best interest of the child (not the parent); if your daughter is actually in a coma then Dad might argue that you visiting is not in her best interest (and not just because she doesn't "know" you as her parent).

    On the other hand - you ARE her mother and have rights (assuming your rights haven't been terminated).

    Again, have a chat with an attorney immediately - ask about an emergency hearing.

    I'm sorry you're in such a bad situation.
