Since separation, custody of one week per month of visitation was granted to myself and upon each visitation our son was admitted for care for constant ear infections, delayed speech, allergic reactions to peanuts and upper respiratory infections. Spouse has exposed minor child to several relationships and quit employment to live with parents. Upon trial spouse was hired by family friend to work at an auto parts store as a manager. Due to his testimony, spouse plans to remain in the state of North Carolina where his family also resides for the duration of his life and requested sole custody of child.
