Panama City, FL asked in Divorce, Family Law and Child Custody for Florida

Q: I am asking for temporary relief to be able to see my 1 year old son, Will the court let me see him?

My husband and I got into a verbal fight and it ended with him calling me a sh**** mom and I punched him in the leg. I went to jail, since then the case has been dropped and I have been going to domestic violence counseling and therapy on my own accord. I am sorry for my actions, I miss my son very much and my daughter misses him too. I call about him everyday and I ask to see him everyday. My calls are ignored. We both have lawyers but mine seems very busy. It will be six months that I have not seen him by the time we go to court. There is no court order or restraining orders in place. Will I be able to have my son back?

A: If your attorney has made a motion for the temporary relief and requested that you be awarded temporary timesharing with your child, the motion must be called up for a hearing. Each case is unique and while its important that you speak with your attorney about the likelihood of you being awarded temporary timesharing with your child.
