My kids stay with me and the mother only gets them on the weekends if she wants. She has medicaid & food stamps for them, but they are with me most of the time. Recently she filed for child support which is ironic considering they live with me. The youngest (2) has been coming home with marks and when I ask her she says he did it playing. Today I got them back because they spent christmas with her and the youngest had a black eye and purple lip. I filed a police report and they said they'd look into it. At this point what can I do? She won't agree to give me custody of them sometimes she says she will give me custody of the youngest, but then takes it back.I am not on the children's birth certificate and their mother and I were never married. My court is scheduled for January 24, 2013 but I still have not been served.
