My husband and I have custody of my step-daughter and I recently was told by my step-daughter that her biological mom created her a Facebook page account and I got really upset and told my husband I was going to file charges on neglect and abuse. Is this possible? I don't even have a Facebook account because I do not only have time, but do not trust what is put on there or trust people to use their best judgement. So I want to know if I can use this against her mom in court. I mean my step-daughter can be chatting and meet a pervert or something online and won't even know it. Now what i did the day before yesterday was create an account with a fictitious name just to get into her page. Some of her so called friends have things on their pages which she should not be seeing.
Child custody involves decisions about who will be responsible for a child, including parental rights, for both married and unmarried parents, and adoptions.
Child neglect is the failure to provide the necessary physical, medical, or emotional care for a child, but exact definitions vary between states and agencies.
