I've raised my two children and couldn't ever get the dad to help. Had to move out of state with the grandmother. After almost a year, I met a guy she didn't like so she filed an ex-parte on me to keep me from moving with my kids. She knew I was taking meds that I didn't have a script for, because I had no insurance or doctor in that state, but have been prescribed them for 10 years in the state I used to live in. She used drugs as the reason for the ex-parte and I failed the UA. Next court date, The dad came and got the kids, while I was branded as negligent because I was unable to get to court and my lawyer was denied a continuance and dismissed from my case! I moved back to the state where I was and where my kids now are. I want custody back. He's just using the kids for benefits and a refund, but I know he doesn't really want them. How can I get them back when I've been branded as negligent??
