I left my AJ's bio/father when I was three months pregnant because he wouldn't give up alcohol or provide a lifestyle suitable for raising a child. Since leaving him and giving birth, I have enlisted and been serving as a soldier. He, however, has for the last ten months been serving time after engaging in unlawful behavior, such as violating the terms and conditions of his parole for felony offenses, and commiting other crimes such as DUI and terroristic threatening. He is scheduled to be released from a halfway house the day before my daughters 2nd birthday (of which he wishes to attend)
A few questions I have are: Is i acceptable to let him be present at her birthday?
Should I decline to let him take her unsupervised given his criminal record?
Am I likely to gain custody?
Any information or advice is welcome, and opinions as well. Feel free to ask more about the situation.
