August 2016 ,dad picked him up after a 3 months visit. supposed to be back november. I was served with court hearing to modify court order. him having 100% physical/ legal custody & I supervised visits. He claimed drug use, suicidal & threat to kids & self. Claimed i was sleeping with minor. My boyfriend is young but not that young! I recvb 8 reff. from social works, daycare, and others. I tested at a facility to show proof allegations were false. At court, in between, murder hearing, they took break, called case. sent down stairs to mediation. My ex said his peice & then the mediatore told me her opinion of me & asked about current BF. went back upstairs. mediator on stand accused me of child molestaion and not to have son! Judge agreed, i got sup. visits, i pay for 2 times a month kids have not seen eachother since 2016. papers were signed and given before i left room. ex and mediator seen chatting
Chatting is not bias. Even if you hire counsel, you may not (probably won’t) get this reversed immediately.
There’s at least one thing you left out of the story and that is the actual age of this current boyfriend who you say is younger but not a minor. There something you’re hiding here and that something appears to be very upsetting to the mediator in the court. Yes, I know this is not what you wanted to hear, but what you want to hear and watch likely to happen or two very different things.
