I dont like putting my business out like this but i have made some good friends on here and want to keep them. Here we go....Last week my fiance of 3 years decided it was time to be a cool hip single mother and took off with my 2 year old son. Words cannot express the pain I am going through. I will still honor all trades made but there will be delay. A very ugly custody battle looks to be looming on the horizon. Prayers are welcome.

I've been in on custody battles and seen the fathers get screwed over by the mothers.
Sorry to hear it man, but here's some stuff to keep in mind:
1 - DOCUMENT EVERY SINGLE CONVERSATION YOU HAVE WITH HER!! Cannot stress that enough. Keep a notebook and document everything that is sad, day and time. Like if you call to talk to your son and she won't give the phone over, write it down. Do the best you can in remembering how the conversations went. Then when sit with your lawyer, you can go and have a deposition said and make the document legal. You need to document any bad habits and anything bad she does that shows that she's not a good mother and isn't being fair to you.
2- Being the father, you have the hardest battle. The courts will 95% of the time side with the mother. I know someone that just now got to see his son after 2 years without being able to because of the mother.
3- Don't do anything that she can use against you to show that you're not a good father. If you're at a bar and have a single beer and there's someone there that knows her, and could tell her that you "were drinking and then drove home", don't get behidn the wheel.
4- Get a lawyer. I'd go ahead and get a case going to get full custody of your son. Show the courts that you want the kid and are willing to fight for him. Don't let her get a custody case going. You have to be proactive and do it first.
Being the father sucks because the courts still take the "can't take the child from the mother" point of view. Unless the mother is obviously a bad mother (and that is next to impossible to prove unless you have a PI that takes evidence of her drinking, doing drugs, hitting the kids, etc..) chances are that she will get custody.
Sorry to say it, but I've been there. You need to show the courts that you will fight tooth and nail. And you need to show that she is keeping you, unrightfully, from your son.

Tony, my prayers are with you man. A word of advice, since it sounds that you may be a religious man, pick up the movie "Fireproof", or better yet, get yourself a copy of the book, "The Love Dare". I am sure what you and your fiance had was at one time great, and, with work on both sides, it still can be great. This book will help.
Again man, I pray for the best outcome for all involved. I am married with 2 children of my own - being seperated from them, let alone my wife, would be tragic indeed.
