My FI has a 3 year old daughter, Olivia. He and her mom never got married. She admitted to getting pregnant on purpose. She gets child support about 75k per year. ( no I am not kidding). Originally she did not even want my Fi involved in the childs life. He had to fight her againt from moving to another state and then a once year battle for joint custody. She just wanted money. Her mom also had children used the men for money and lived off of child support settlementsShe uses this money to live in general, to pay for her PHD. They have joint custody. Ulternate 3 days or 4 days per week each and trade Holidays.
Anyway so her mom has a boyfriend that is fairly abusive to her, CPS has been called severial times, I called the last week as I am a mandated reporter.( Social worker)
He has hit her in the past, pictures to prove the bruises, she is video taped describing what has happened. The police have been involved and are willing to testify against the mom and boyfriend. THe mom has told her to not talk about what happends. She has withdrawn grately. The boyfriend scared her, and threatened her, I She told me what happened to FI and I ... FI took her down to the police station to make a statement. Filed a motion for emergancy custody, it was denied and a court date is set for the last week in Jan.
If anyone has been to custody hearings, can you please tell me how they work. The mom is very well spoken but very disturbed,... Thoughts would be great, Thanks. I am just concerned for this child she is only 3.
