I have pictures of his foot before and after going to see the doctor and then after he came home with this procedure being done and it's a visible bruise and needlepoint. I addressed this matter to the father but haven't been back to family court yet for it to be heard there. We go to court again next week. Unfortunately, my experience so far shows I'm being run in circles. I was screened through child services and told they won't get involved with this since is ongoing in family court but they told me to go to self help where I was told I could file for a restraining order against the girlfriend since she's not married to my ex and it's a civil matter, but then I was told in court today, that it's a family court issues and was assumed to be a jealous ex when it has nothing to do with that. These people have only come forward within the past week and a half, and as time goes on, things seem to mount and become more heightened with the lengths they will go to. I just don't think it's healthy or in the best interest of my son, or any child to have something like this done at home. I just want to stop anything else from happening anymore. And I seem to hit walls every time.

I don't understand why there isn't a standard of things to abide by and tired of things dragging out while they continue to do outlandish things and sabotage my relationship as our son's mother and the impact it's creating on him for his age. He still will take a toy doctor bag and use the toy needle to put it to his foot everytime. He's more vocal now about things as he was in speech therapy for lack of speech for his age. I just don't want to seem like I'm exaggerrating when he does this stuff... yet it really isn't right

If you feel you are getting the run around, you need counsel. I realize it may not be in your budget. But this is your son. You may need to evaluate anew what might be removed from the budget, and search your area in detail to see if you can locate someone who takes payments. Good luck to you and your lad.

Yes, I agree. It is my son, and that's why I'm taking a stand against what was done to him and the sabotage going on because it overall is not in his best interest and his well being. All the attorneys I have contacted require a large upfront retainer fee, which I don't have and I apparently make to much to receive aid from the court and I haven't been able to locate a pro bono lawyer. How does stuff like this ever get resolved when my ex has funded 3 lawyers and things just keep getting worse. Thanks for your advice and response.
