Q: Lost my children due to being a unstable mother 2 1/2 years ago.
Since they have fix myself to get them back . All my programs I have done say I am ready to have them back they will tell the judge I am stable. The father has not let me see them for a 2 years. He gave them up to a family member due to Social Service involvement for about a year now. I did not get told. Social Service does not work with me. I have to go to a judge to change anything. I have no money for lawyer costs and don't know what to do. I have till June to get them back or lose them forever. I have tried legal aide and they said no. I live in North Dakota and I am College Student. No one will help me financially. My programs says write a letter to a judge but I don't know if that is wise. I still owe money I can't pay to the lawyer so hes out too. I don't want to loss my children because of lack of money. But I am running out of options. How do I fix this.
