Default Status hearing for the Guardianship of my kids -- HELP ASAP

The Status hearing for the Guardianship of my kids to their Grandparents is coming up on January 9, 2012 and I don't have money for a lawyer. I must do a declaration to the judge contesting my soon to be ex husbands move to turn the temporary guardianship into a perminat one. I cannot write this declaration because I don't know what to do and what I did attempt, sounds very vindictive and angry. How can I get this typed up and delivered to the judge?

I wish to inform you that you may seek the help of Legal Aid. Legal Aid is a non profit agency that specializes in providing free civil legal services. Generally, to be eligible the person must have low income. You may locate the office of free Legal Aid nearest to you through the yellow pages. Alternatively, you may contact the State Bar Lawyer Referral Service. They may be contacted by email or on tel. You may explain your situation and request for help. You may also contact the Pro Se department of the court where your case is in progress. They will guide you. Alternatively, you may visit the court library and read the guide in the matter published by the court.

The upcoming hearing is a very, very important one and you should be represented by counsel. Where you are facing permanent loss of parental rights, you need representation by a lawyer who can best advocate for you -- the facts and the applicable law.

If you are unable to afford a private attorney, you may apply to Legal Aid for representation or to your state Bar Association for many maintain a panel of lawyers who will represent pro bono.

Thank you for your help. I have finished a petition to terminate guardianship, almost done with my declaration and due to not having legal representation or guidance of any kind a letter request for a continuance to allow me more time to get it. As far as declarations go. Is detail frowned upon when recounting the year of guardianship or is more detail appropriate? I need to know befor I finish my declaration and file it this week.
