Hi Jordan - I am sorry you are so stressed. Why are you going to court? It wasn't totally clear in your post.

Jordan, this sounds like a tough time for you.  It is difficult to tell what is going on but it sounds like if court is involved you might need a lawyer, or to seek a continuance to get legal advice.

Jordan, family court is often very understanding when presented with the honest facts.  I imagine if you explain to a judge what has happened and ask that you be granted some time to find some legal counsel, she or he would be open to that.  The job of the judge is to act in the best interest of the child, so help her or him understand how more time to gather information and get advice would help achieve that goal.

I think you need to ask the judge this. Is it possible the notary only agreed to notarize your ex's signature but not yours? I'm not familiar with the specifics of the law. I admit that it sounds fishy to me. I agree with the previous poster who advised you to show up and explain everything to the judge and to get some legal counsel. I'm so sorry you are going through this - it sounds very stressful. Good luck to you and your baby.
