Custody of My Angel Mason

I have a very amazing son named Mason, When I asked for a teacher I became pregnant with him and he has shown me every facet of love a mother can have for their child. I am being faced with another lesson and that is how to navigate the maze of custody that arises when the parents don't work out. I have had primary custody of Mason for the past 4 years and Masons father and I had a verbal agreement that Mason would visit with his father for a year to get to know his side of the family and then return to me for the school years, sharing joint custody with myself as the primary guardian.

The night before I was to fly out to pick Mason up and take him home his father left me a message that Mason is not going anywhere, to get a Lawyer and one week later I was served with papers from his father applying for sole custody with child support. His father also scheduled Mason for a spinal surgery without getting my consent or approval, He is filing for sole custody of Mason under the pretenses that Mason is so disabled and the state I live in is not equipped to handle Masons medical or education needs. I am asking for help as I need a lawyer in Connecticut, to represent me as I have no jurisdiction in New Mexico. The money I am asking for is to cover retainer fees, hourly rates and travel expenses of the Lawyer, lodging and my travel expenses as well. I have a court date of August 21 in Connecticut and hope to have representation by then. Please help me get my baby home.
