this you can do by your self, go to the court house and file for custody of the child and then go to a lawyer, your'll need them then. The procedure is to file for guardianship of a minor, custodial issues pertain to biological parents. Filing for guardianship is not a complicated process. Contact the clerk of the family or domestic relations court in your county, or simply call the information number of the county court. Abandonment laws are established by individual states, most states only consider abandonment when a minor child has been left w/o adult supervision in an environment that constituted physical endangermnent. The judge may allow such an issue addressed at the guardianship hearing, or you can contact state social services for more specific information.
