How can a mother leave the father of her baby and get full custody, when she does not trust him to look after the baby by himself?

How can a mother leave the father of her baby and get full custody, when she does not trust him to look after the baby by himself? The mother (or any parent in such a situation) would need to prove, by a preponderance of evidence, to the court that the father (or other parent) is sufficiently unfit to be entrusted with the child. Simply telling the court “I don’t trust the other parent” is not enough, not even close to enough to persuade the court.

The mother would need to provide the court independently verifiable facts that show the father is either unable or unwilling to provide adequate care and attention and supervision of the child. A court cannot award a parent sole legal and/or sole physical custody of a child without first finding there is sufficient evidence to justify such an award (or at least cannot do its job properly without first finding there is sufficient evidence to justify such an award).

How do you get legal help if no attorney wants your case?

If an attorney tells you your case complex and not a big money suit, it means the lawyer feels it’s more trouble than it is worth, meaning that it’s at least more trouble than it is worth to the lawyer, but often (and likely) more trouble than it is worth to you as well. Which means that you don’t really “need” the legal help you might believe you need after all and may be better off pursuing remedies other than those you could expect (or not expect, as the case may be) through the legal system.
