We're in a nasty custody battle. Long story short, mom's newest BF is violent and cannot even spend time with his own bio-kids without supervision 2x a month. Judge orders BF to have no-contact with my daughter and orders mom to move out of BFs house. BF's roommates informed me that he was planning to move back in with mom and my daughter so I alerted PD to do a wellness check when eyes on scene spotted BF with my daughter.
PD searched only the room my daughter was sleeping in (infant) and noted that the BF's car was at the residence, but was unable to locate him inside the house.
Minutes later, he sends a criminating text to his roommate who forwards it to me and calls me saying: "the cops are here looking for me."
Mom looses custody if the order is violated, but she LIED to PD.What is the best way to present this in court? BF's roommates don't want to be named since BF still lives with them part-time and has threatened physical harm upon them in recent past.
You ought to speak with a family law lawyer about him violating the no contact order and how to proceed. Let CPS know about his text. Don't delete the text as that is the original evidence.
Ms. Johns is a lawyer although she is not your lawyer unless and until you have consulted with her and signed a fee agreement or letter agreement. This post does not constitute legal advice and no attorney client relationship results.
Contact the dept of protective services. If they are already involved, you may want to hire a family law attorney to make sure you get custody.
