Rock Hill, SC asked in Family Law for South Carolina

Q: Will a judge look at texts I have saved to prove my sons father is an unfit, abusive, drug addict, with crimal history?

I spoke with a lawyer who told me my proof that my sons father is unfit will possibly not even be looked at in court..that I need letters from my sons doctor to hold this up. I have proof he is a drug using abuser with a bad crimal and mental health history. She didn’t listen to any of what I was trying to say and said a judge might not even look at all my proof. I am scared of this man and want my son as far away from him as possible. Should I see a new lawyer?...I did have a consultation..she refused to look at my evidence

A: Your question states that you spoke with a lawyer so it isn't clear that you had an in-office consultation with a lawyer. If you didn't, do so. A lawyer needs to see what evidence you have to be able to properly evaluate it.
