Hi! I'm new here. My daughter is 2.5 years old and her father and I split about a month ago. I have always stayed home with her so she moved me with to my parents house. Her father and I had been doing ok with communicating about her and her needs, etc. But lately he has been very hostile. He won't answer the phone to talk to her or say goodnight to her. He's only seen her 3 days out of the last month. Today he sent me a text message saying that he wants to pick her up on Thursday night and that he'll be with his grandparents. He will not tell me which grandparents, where they are going or what time she will be back home. He says its none of my business and that I can't legally keep her from seeing him. I'm seeking legal advice but I'm really not comfortable with him just taking her at this point. He won't give me any information and his mother is a recovering addict and I don't want her around my daughter. What should I do? I've given up on communicating with him because he simply cannot be civil. I do not feel my daughter would be safe with him but I'm not sure what I can do before we actually go to court. Does anyone have any advice? Please help.
