@luvalways86:  And I’ll also say this, I would NEVER hire a lawayer that didn’t have kids to begin with for my case.  I don’t care how much you love kids, if you don’t have your own, you don’t have a dang clue what you’re talking about when it comes to rights between a parent, based on violence and drugs.

This is one of the most WTF things i have ever read on the Bee. Ever. Carry on.

@luvalways86:  As for the legal advice, that does not have to come from a lawyer.  I’m sure there are several mom’s on this site that have gone through the same thing.  You don’t have to be a lawyer to give legal advice, if you can speak from experience.

I am sorry to say but this is one of the dumbest things I have ever read on this site.  And trust me we get our share of ill-informed comments here.  Yes, legal advice can only come from a lawyer.  If you wanted to vent or get blind support on your post, you should have said so in your OP.  Instead you said you wanted legal advice.  The lawyers on the board disclaimed their advice as legal advice but were more than willing to give you experiential advice that let you know about the potential advantages of your choices.  People also listed the disadvantages as well.  You seem to have gotten extremely irritated about people providing you with complete experiential information.  If you want one-sided advice, talk to yourself.  People were only trying to help you here.  Respect that and you may have a more pleasant time on the bee.

Someone thought this was mean so I will delete.  But please, come to me and this thread with some thoughtfulness and intelligence.

@luvalways86:  People are making a big deal of it because this message board has certain rules and tones.  You are literally still a “newbee” and should read the posting guidelines and get a feel for it around here.  We don’t go around getting really upset when someone presents a different view (especially when the advice we are giving is given with a heavy heart for your sad situation).  You really have just been rude to people on this thread.  If so many people are not particularly sympathetic to your posts right now, who do you think is creating drama.

And again:

As far as seeking legal advice from someone who is not a lawyer…that can totally be done.

NO!  Legal advice comes from a lawyer.  Advice comes from lay people.  You are not precise in your writing and that is why I am coming down on you.  You are perpetuating ridiculousness and I don’t want misinformation out there.

And I am flagging your comment as a personal attack.  Honey I have hobbies.  Weddingbee is one of them.  Intelligent conversation is another.

NOTE:  I do not ever want this community to turn into another unwelcoming message board.  And I never want to discourage new posters from posting/commenting.  I do think that newer posters should, however, review and seek out assistance on what is appropriate here.

@luvalways86: Your last post has nothing to do with what I said and is irrelevant.  If you don’t want to listen to anyone else on this, stop coming back to the thread or request that it be closed.

@luvalways86:  What are you talking about?  This just isn’t making sense anymore.  Again flagging your post as a personal attack.

@luvalways86:  I just got this from a well-informed lawyer and I think it might help you understand what you’re dealing with, as far your situation in real life.

"sole legal and physical custody can allow for visitation (or sometimes will restrict all visitation until the delinquent parent can get his/her act together).  Termination of parental rights means you are not my child anymore.  Another person can adopt you.  I have no say in your life."

So... me speaking again...basically, termination is much harder to get, even with our situations (drugs, etc)... I don't know but it might be a step-by-step process for you and your Fiance.

I wish the best for all of you!! Definitely talk to a lawyer about it...

@luvalways86:  I did read the comments so don’t make assumptions.  You are not particularly precise in your writing so half the time your comments don’t make sense and I didn’t know to what you were referring.  I can’t speak to rubies intent, but I assume that she like every lawyer on here was saying they didn’t think you should because it is a uphill, if not impossible battle and that you are better off not trying for it.  That my dear, is advice, not badgering or rude comments.  Sorry if you disagree. 

PS You’d have to point to other specific things she said that were rude if you want to continue this.
