    Answered . This sounds like child abuse. You should report the mom's behavior to CPS. It sounds like you already have a petition for custody filed. See my AVVO Legal Guides on paternity, custody, parenting plans and restrictions under RCW 26.09.191 for more information about the legal issues raised by your inquiry.

    Answered . It sounds like you are on the right path. You just need to make sure you have good legal counsel along the way. This is your daughter. This is important. Borrow money if necessary to get the best lawyer you can.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Does your temporary order give your ex supervised visits or any visits? If the temporary order does provide for visitation and you are concerned it is not providing your daughter enough protection then go back in front of the court.

    Have you filed the paper work to modify the parenting plan or establish a permanent parenting plan? Have you spoken to an attorney either as a consultation or through legal aid? Have you spoken with the court facilitator?
