The father of my child is very controlling, has stalked me, and his mother as well. He on multiple exchanges has failed to appear for my visitation. Recently, I moved out of state to get away from him and his mother's control. I will not provide an address because of his harassment. He is complaining that because I will not tell him my address that he is concerned for my daughters safety. He also has been asking for my location and an additional phone number regardless of the child being with me. I have had my child since birth and recently received only a few summer visits, due to the move. He feels he has the right to withhold my child from me because he cannot locate me. What can I do to protect myself from him, see my child, and fight him legally to stop his controlling acts?The father is a seven time convicted felon for theft, identity theft, stealing, etc. My family and I have been a victim of his theft and identity use. One of his older daughters works for the court system, and he has labeled me as a bad/neglecting parent in the court system, even though I have done nothing but provide a steady, disciplined, and loving life for her. He has abused my every way but physically and continues to harass me, putting my daughter through a horrible mess and blaming me for it all. I am severely in debt with an attorney due to my previous court battle with him, which never made it to the judge. What do I need to do?
