I am trying to figure out what my rights are concerning visitation. I guess you would say my ex and I are common law married. We spilt up right after I got pregnant with our second. He keeps coming and going in my life and pretends to be a dad. He's pretty constant in being a dead beat dad. He continues to say he does t like our daughter and our son is 2 and he keeps saying I baby him. We went to mediation and it doesn't seem to help. His family treats our son with indifference. If he cries around my family they all move to see what's wrong his just looks at him and say oh there he goes again. Most recently I went to drop them off my ex basically dragged him down the stairs. And to his room. Then told him to grow up. I know my sons cries and he was scared. I took the kids and left but am now wondering do I have full custody or do I need to go to court? Or does it even matter? My family all have completely different opinions so I thought I would turn to the web. Any advice is much appreciated.
