I agreed to joint custody to end the fighting in court. It was the supidest move I ever made. My son lives with me full time and visits his father every other weekend friday night to sunday evening. His father was an abusive drunk, who has been court ordered to remain under the legal drinking limit. So, far I think he has complied with that. I am afraid any day that could change. My son is seeing a child life specialist (not councelling) because his father manipulates him into thinking he is sad,lonely and may die without my son. My son feels guilty when he has to come home. I am unsure if he will start drinking at any time and am concerned for my sons safety. My lawyer can't do anything until something happens. I can't put him in coucelling to have them find out if my ex is drinking around my son because I don't have sole custody. Where the hell do I go from here, how do I be proactive and not wait until something happens or my son sees his Dad a drunken mess?
