Ok lets start from the beginning kinda. I have a 5 month old daughter. I found out that I was pregnant after I had already left the biological father. I found out he was alledgedly a sex offender and obtained an arrest report on the matter. It is a very descriptive arrest report with a statement from this guys wife and step daughter. Some time ago he also admitted to me about something happening with his step daughter (she was 13 yrs old at the time). He was dimissed on the charges because his step daughter plead the fifth. He has not lived around his wife, step daughter and other two children in over 2 years. In fact in a completely different state. This report I have sounds like his "sexual behaviors." Things a 13 year old girl should not know about her step father.
There also was a possibility of him doing this again but with his girlfriends 3 year old this time.
Now he is trying to fight me for visitation of my daughter. He has never supported her or had any kind of visitation with her and is not even on the birth certificate. I just had to do a dna test however, ordered by the court. My daughter has lived with me and my fiance from day one. My fiance has been like a father to her from the very beginning.
It scares me to think of her being around him at all. People keep telling me that since he was not convicted there is nothing I can do. THAT CAN'T BE!!! How can I protect my child!?!? Just because he is good at getting away with things does not mean I should just sit around waiting for him to hurt my daughter or someone elses for that matter. There must be something I can do to protect her!
Any suggestions or help??
