Hi, I am from Canada if that makes a difference in the laws, I am asking for anyone and everyone’s help, I posted a message a while ago and you helped a lot, but now its down to the wire and we need some advice. My b/f is trying to get custody of his daughter (nothing is in court yet) the mother has been caring for her when he is not there (he left for a year) been back for 7 months. He was asked to leave by the police today, so we went to file for interim custody, but ran into a big thick brick wall!!! The mother is diagnosed as emotionally unstable, uses the daughter as a pawn, and takes everything out on the daughter. We thought having 2 years of proof of this behavior we would have no problem!!
Nope we have to fight to the death it seems. I am getting police documentation to prove the domestic disputes between them and the harassment charges we have on her. But the lawyer told us that because the daughter lives with her mother that is where she will probably stay. Yet we both work, have a stable environment to bring her too, are capable of providing and nurturing her properly. The mother does not have a job, my b/f has been paying everything for his daughters sake (maybe a bad choice??) Can any one suggest anything we are not doing or thinking of.
We are thinking that we could take her this weekend to visit her and have the papers already filed and then we don’t have to fight to get her. But I am not sure if it will create more problems for us and more for her emotionally. Help us please, any suggestions is most appreciated thank you in advance.
P.S. Even though I am a female, I think this is one of the best sites online, it has helped us a great deal, I just wish that things were different and fathers didn’t have to go through all of this to see their flesh and blood. All my love and prays, and sympathy is with each and every one of you.
