About 3 years ago, I willfully allowed friends of my parents become guardians of my young son. I was on my way to recovery point in Charleston WV to get sober. It took me some time, however I have completed the year program at recovery point. I went on my own, I was NOT court ordered. Now it is time for me to be a mother to my son. The friends of my parents do not want to give my son back, they want to adopt. My son is my world and to give him a better life is the reason I went to recovery point on my free will. What options are available to me to get my guardianship of my son back?

Important Information

Legal Aid Funding
Legal aid professionals and organizations oftentimes receive government funding for taking on cases with those who cannot afford attorneys. For the most part, funding is limited so legal aid entities can only take on a limited amount of cases. Qualifications are often rigid.
