I have sole custody of my 2yr old. The sperm donor took me to court in Oakland Co. (I was there, he was in Kazoo)for weekend overnight visits, but they gave him every other Sat to meet us there, because she was 14 months and he had never even tried to meet her. He only showed up once, so per the agreement, he lost his parenting time rights. I have moved back to Kazoo and I tried to let him see her, but he came to the house reeking of alcohol and consistently lying, so I said he couldn't see her until he decided to be a mature responsible adult. Now he's having the case moved to Kazoo and feels this will give him a clean slate to start over in the court's eyes and fight for [visitation/custody]. I'm not sure exactly what he has planned. I need to protect my child for these reasons and more.Since day 1, I have been adamant about him being able to see her; which is the reason why I allowed him to see her once we moved closer to him in spite of me having the legal right to tell him that he could not see her (I have proof of this). I honesty do not think it's worth contesting the case being moved, but I am preparing to request drug/alcohol testing as well as supervised visitation based on cryptic, semi-threatening comments he has made to me. Thank you both for the advice
