    Default Need Help! Best lawyer in Greensboro NC for child custody

    Without telling my whole life story I need the best lawyer I can get for a child custody case that has gone wrong. Anyone have any lawyer friends or experience in that part of the country. I live in Moble Al and am thinking I will have to go to Greensboro NC, get a lawyer to sue for custody; to save my son from being totally ruined by his mother. We weren't married, lived together and turns out she liked cops and internet more than me. For her, the grass was greener on the other side and she called it quits after his 1st bday and stayed in Mobile till he was almost 9. With only a few days notice before moving to NC, i was informed of the move and she already had job, housing and getting married. I didn't try to stop her from going because I didnt have time to prove paternity and get it stopped according to lawyers I talked to, plus being a nice guy (didnt want her thinking it was a desperate attempt to stop her marriage or keep her at her chosen crap job here). Anyway 3 years later she is divorced, our son has lots of issues that have recently come to my attention(just turned 12), having lots of trouble in school and she got another job that requires her to go to Wash DC for training.
    My problem! After my christmas visit I drop my son off at her mothers house (per her instructions) on Jan 2 in Mobile Al., and she never came to get him. She instructed my son to lie about everything in hopes I wouldn't find out about him secretly living here. I picked up from grandmothers on Jun 19th (for what was only supposed to be 2 weeks she would let me have this summer) and found out in a few days had been here for all of 2010 except for 1 week. Find out a bunch of other stuff that she had done to him but none of it involved violence just emotional stuff. Get a lawyer (good friend of the Doctor my wife works for) and he said we have great case, his residency was re-established here after 6 months and abandonment at Nanas. Get temp custody, work on his issues because he always slept with nana or mom when they werent sleeping with someone else, has serious anxiety issues, ADHD and frequently behaves and is treated by them as if he is still 5 or 6. Me and my wife made alot of progress, kept him all summer and enroll in private school that started Aug 10. The show of cause hearing was yesterday and the judge threw it out saying he didn't have jurisdiction in case because his residency wasn't established and he went back to NC with mom yesterday. So far wasted about 5 grand in lawyer, uniforms tuition books school supplies ect. I make about 50k a year (her new job is close to 70k with fed govt) and she says I owe her 925 month support and need to leave the past behind us and work something out for child support and future visitation. I've been paying his insurance since day 1 and giving her about 400 month for last 11 years since she decided to chase her career, internet guys (my wife thinks she like the real manly girls) and leave my son wherever it suits her since she moved to NC. He needs to be rescued from the hell he is in but he doesn't see the lies games and emotional toll it is having on him and wants to stay with her.

    My reccomendation is to ask a local attorny if he has anyone he can refer up there. If not just do some internet research on lawyers up there and pick one. Sounds like a long battle waiting to happen and wish you the best of luck.

    Thanks guys. I want the best because my son deserves better than he has been getting since she took him to NC but he still wants to be with "mommy". For his birthday I allowed him to see her and his stories changed about what she had done the last 3 years and came back with a teddy bear and flowers. HE IS A 12 YEAR OLD BOY! anyway. I think my local attorney is seriously embarrassed because he thought we had this part in the bag. He did very little prep and promised to call me later in the day after the defeat, 36 hours later still no word from him.

    I hate to tell you this, but your chances are slim to none. The judge will almost always rule for the mom, she can be a hooker, as long as she doesnt do it in front of your son.
    Good luck tho, hope you win out.
    PM me a phone number and I we can discuss this, I've been there, BTW I "won".

    Default Best lawyer in Greensboro NC for child custody

    I haven't got a clue, but a friend who is an attorney in Greensboro recommends a Barbara Morgenstern as the best family law attorney in town.

    FWIW, you mileage may vary.

    Good Luck,
