2 years ago I was told by my Ex-Girlfriend’s Son who was 7 years old at the time, she use to leave my Son (1 year old ) home alone while she took him to school. I lived with her at the time and work overnight so I was not home in the mornings and was not aware. I confronted her through text message where she admitted “only when he is sleeping” I saved the text message conversation. 2 years later she is now taking me to court for custody because I am moving in with my new girlfriend and want to take my son with me since he stays with me 4-5 days a week. Also I know her older son who is now 9 yrs old stays home alone after school but have no way of proving. Is this evidence still creditable even though its 2 years old? I was told it can backfire since I never reported it to child services also.
