dad was abusive, a drunk and has been arrested several times, had the children maybe 6 months in the past 3 years and pulled child support out on me, i lost custody of the children over a year ago but they have been in my care since jan, 2018 because they were "too much for him". i have been getting credited child support while they have been in my care. father was discharged from military for kidnapping and has recently moved back to michigan, i need someone to help me keep this horrible man away from my children.
Sounds like you have a complicated and contentious child custody/parenting time case. You make several allegations concerning him but also mention that you lost custody yourself but with no indication why. I’m not making any judgments about either of you but I’m going to give you some straight talk. People do really crappy things sometimes but the bottom line is what is best for the children. Children generally need and deserve the love and affection of both parents. Even though mom and dad cannot get along with each other, the children must come first. So, ask yourself if you are being completely honest and have only the children’s best interests at heart. And, talk to an attorney in your area who can review all of the facts in a confidential setting and guide you through the family law system. And please do not say negative things about their father in front of your children (I’m not saying that you do but a lot of people do even without meaning to do be conscious about the things you say in front of them).
