My ex takes my 3 young girls in direct contact with a drug dealer. I have voiced my concerns about their contact with him she seems unconcerned. He has violated a restraining order in the last calender year with someone else. That issue seems to have been resolved. I have no direct evidence against him but know that when we were married she would go to him for drugs. I have legitimate concern on who my daughters are coming in contact with but don't know what I can do for them. My ex-wife and I have 50/50 custody of the three young girls and I want to know they are safe when they are with her.
You need to call your State's Abuse Hotline and let them investigate.
This information is a general answer and is not specific to any particular case. If you find this Answer helpful please make sure to indicate that on AVVO.
If you are concerned, then you should file Complaint for Modification of Custody and Visitation and request that the Court order your ex not to come in contact with this person while the kids are with her. You need to tell the Court the reasons for your request. The forms for filing the Complaint are available at the Courthouse that issued the 50/50 custody in the Clerk's Office.
