Answer You are a mother ... fight!!!!! You can seek out legal counsel and go to court to fight for the rights of your children. If your ex has any record of abuse against you or your children (or both) you can fight this in a court of law and get either partial or hopefully full custody of your child(ren). If you can't afford legal counsel then seek out your local Women's Abuse Centers (you can go to Mental Health or your local law enforcement agency and ask them where these centers are) and fight through them. They have people who will help you fight for your rights in court to get your children back .......... OR When your ex keeps forcing you to give up custody he is breaking the law! Seek out legal advice and if necessary (and you have proof) go to the media for help. People don't take kindly to any man (or woman) being abusive with the other partner or children involved.
