Paternal father is asking for 50/50 shared custody. He is a convicted felon and has a drug background. Infant child lives full time with mother but father has supervised visits several times a week until a parenting plan is determined.
The father visited on two different occasions acting strange. Sniffing, falling asleep, drinking a lot of water. He was asked to take a hair follicle test and refused.
When he came to visit last, he has now shaved his body, arm hair, legs, head and his attorney has stopped pushing for mediation and slowed down the process.
How does the court view custody with relation to a parent that cannot prove he is drug free but wants 50/50 shared time?
