My wife and the mother of our two children left in july 2000, and left the children with me I have recieved divorce papers and I answered and also counterpetitioned her how do I prolong this divorce. She is trying to take the children from me when she want nothing to do with them except for every other weekend if she was not busy. To through a twist into it when she left she was pregnant and has since gave birth to our third child, while she was pregnant she was using x-tasy and mariguana. When i saw our new baby i took a hair sample from her and had it tested and it showed that the mother was useing drugs during the pregnance. She has an attorney and I do not, I am filing all my papers myself, but i need to prolong this divorce as long as i can "HOW DO I DO THAT"
