I wish to inform you that court consider best interest of child as main consideration. In this regard during your custody case the court could have given the kids to you based upon the fact that you could have taken care of kids but however when your lawyer through misrepresentation signed your rights away then court inferred that you do not intend to keep the kids. You may now file a motion for relief from judgment or order as it is based upon incorrect statement signed by you.

If you signed a paper voluntarily relinquishing your parental rights that is a done deal

I don't know how long ago this happened, you may have an action against your attorney but it's he said/she said.

If you signed your rights away to your children, your lawyer is at fault, did something against your interests he is sworn to protect and you need to deal with this effectively. What I suggest is that you seek out another family law attorney to help prepare your case to get your children back. That document you signed, unknowingly, or misrepresenting what it meant, needs to be brought to light in court with the full facts -- as only an attorney can do.

The longer the children remain with your ex, the more difficult it will be to get them back for as long as the children are doing well, not neglected courts are reluctant to shift them about --unless they are of teen years when their wishes are considered.

Having as much support as possible from those who know you and your mothering will be helpful to make a case. Keep as much contact with your children as possible to, as involved in their lives as you can, keep up with what is going on with them -- at home and in school. With the aid of a good lawyer, you may have a chance to get them back.

I can't help but be stopped by your opening sentence. You felt the need to tell us right off the bat that you're a "wonderful person". That's subjective. We don't know you from a hole in the ground. Who are you trying to convince? Until a person knows you, it's merely your opinion that you're so "wonderful".

You sound like a classic Narcissistic Personality. All about me. Everyone's persecuting me. (It's not "fare" (fair, by the way) for people to "pick on me"). Give me a break. Everyone who gets "picked on" doesn't believe it's fair. What makes you so special? Just because you have a learning disability? So did Einstein. So does Tom Cruise.

When it comes to children, it doesn't matter how you present yourself to the outside world. You could pass yourself off as Mother Theresa. It's how you behave behind closed doors that Child Protective Services is concerned about.

Perhaps you've heard about personal accountability? Never sign anything you did not take the time to read and fully understand.

This woman will not be absolved from that personal accountability. A judge would ask her if she took the time to read and understand it. If she whines about her "learning disability" the judge will ask how long she's known about that. Clearly she's aware of it, and if she has trouble reading and comprehending it's her responsibility to get someone to help her read it and understand it before she signs anything.

Let's stop blaming everyone while absolving people of their own personal accountability.

This woman rubbed me the wrong way anyway but whining about how it's not "fair" to be "picked on" because she's such a "wonderful person". Who goes around introducing themselves that way, really?

Compassion and kindness aside, this is a legal advice forum. OP asked about ways she could LEGALLY regain custody of her children. Quite honestly, the fact that she signed away her parental rights puts a significant limitation on her options.

It is quite possible that her attorney at the time DID advise her of her rights, but she wasn't in a place to be able to understand the concept of signing away those parental rights. Or perhaps she DID understand at the time, but now feels that her circumstances have changed to the point where she should be able to regain custody now.

Her personal issues and her claims to be this wonderful person have no place in this legal discussion. Courts won't revoke her authorization to relinquish her parental rights just because she is supposed to be this nice person. They will only make a decision based on the relevant legal issues of fact. And the fact remains that she signed over her parental rights. If she did not completely understand those rights, then it was her responsibility to make sure she did before signing the documents she received.

I agree it is a legal forum but does that give people the right to degrade others who ask questions on it.
I guess if I ask a question Im just stupid and wanting attention? Thats sure what the "unregistered" makes it sound like.

Do you identify with the OP?

If you identify yourself as being "stupid and wrong", that's your problem. Not anyone else's, and why are you getting so upset about words from total strangers you'll never meet anyway? Why would their words matter to you at all?

Prioritize.
