I have a 4 year old son. Back in 2010 the judge granted me full custody and gave his dad 5 hours a week to see him. In the last 3 years my sons dad has had excuses on why he wasnt picking my son up just so he can go to concerts or trips. Now that dad is on probation he has filed court papers because he wants joint custody and my son every other weekend and every wednesday. I have an order of protection against him for the next 10 years. Oh and i did allow my son to spend two nights there and both times dad never woke up with him. Both times my son was injured because he was not being watched and both time my son cried in his room by himself.most of the time dad doesnt spend the five hours a week with him because he is working.
