I live in CA and my ex-wife in FL. My daughter is 5 years old and currently living with her mother. I get my daughter every summer for 2 months.
My ex-wife called me on the phone and sounded nervous. She asked if I received any phone calls from Children and Family. I asked her why? She was very vague and said she and her boyfriend (he lives with her) had a little argument and it got a little our of hand but that's it. I called Children and Family and found out they indeed had an argument, but they were both extremely drunk. My ex-wife even hit her boyfriend a few times and my daughter witnessed the whole thing. I asked Children and Family what happens now and they just said my ex-wife and her boyfriend agreed to go to counseling and they'll check up in a week. I told them I wanted my daugI told them I wanted my daughter out of there immediately, but they told me to go to court for that. I want full custody of my daughter, because I am sure this is not the first time something like this happens. My ex wife is a very aggressive person and I have hundreds of text messages from her insulting and degrading me. After I talked to Children and Family I decided to do a little research and found a lot of pictures of my ex-wife and her boyfriend on facebook with alcohol in front of my daughter. I know for a fact her boyfriend is an alcoholic, because we used to be friends. My question is what can I do to get full custody of my daughter? Will these pictures help? What else could be helpful in proving she's an unfit mother? Will the report from Children and Family help? Could I encourage my ex-wife's neighbors to call Children and Family if they see or hear anything? What about all the aggressive text messages she sends me, are they of any use too?
