I have two special needs girls that I have full custody of and in May of 2011 we moved out of the County that the custody order took place and I now reside in Dakota County. 7 months ago I noticed things slowly changing and I stopped receiving child support, but things are getting worse and have even had to get law involved. The last few times the girls have been at their fathers place of residence they are not returned as scheduled. There has been violence at dad's that they have witnessed, and these issues have had a significant adverse effect on them, emotionally, physically, mentally, and educationally. My youngest has nightmares of her grandpa being violent to the family members who reside in the home, and since their dad lives with his parents it makes it difficult to protect them.I am requesting some one to please help me find a way to help me protect my children's well being, as well as, protecting myself, legally. I make to much for help from Legal Aid, but barely enough to scrape by each month. I have even gone to the lengths of getting a temporary OFP until I can get into court, for an emergency parenting modification, because that is going to take 3-4 months.
