I have a 2 year old with an ex girlfriend, and I have tried to work out visitation arrangements and a parenting plan on good faith without filing papers. In the 2 years of my daughters life she has only allowed me to visit my daughter in her apartment without bringing anyone (my fiance, friends, family members). I did so as I have an honest interest in my daughter's life. she has contacted partners of mine in the past saying we had sex during my parental visit. she is inconsistent and flip-flopping on the issue of allowing me to see my child. (stay away from us/you never come to see her) She finally let me have an unsupervised visit with my daughter at my moms house and now she has filed a molestation report on me with CPS. What can I do?
Consult with a family law attorney to deal with filing a motion for custody. Consult with a criminal defense attorney to help you with the potential criminal charges. You should also document all of the contacts you have had with the ex-girlfriend.

You need to retain an attorney immediately to assist you in working with the Department of Child and Family Services as well as to file for a parenting plan to protect and ensure your rights. We provide representation in Kalispell on these types of matters. Don't wait. Hire someone who has experience working with DFS as well as representing parents in civil custody matters.
