An ex i used to date is a daily heroin abuser she has 6 other children but has custody of none of them how can i get full custody and keep her away for good i dont want her any where near my child
You need to start the legal process to gain legal custody of your child. If paternity has never been established that will need to be done as well. Also consider the need to file for emergency custody if you believe your child is in danger due to the drug abuse. However you will need some evidence or witnesses to back up these allegations. I urge you to consult with an attorney or your local legal aid society.
File for custody. If parentage has been established you’re closer to getting it resolved. Emergency custody may also likely be a consideration. Hire an attorney to work through this with you.
