My daughters 6 months old, her father has barely been in her life. Three weeks ago, he started seeing her twice a week, for the first time since august. Things were actually going really well (he was GOING to start giving me money, was actually taking her when he was supposed to, etc.) until he started telling me what to do, which is what caused all the problems back in august. He thinks he can take her wherever he wants, bring her around whoever he wants, and not have to tell me. His friends are absolute scum; they're all druggies and alcoholics who don't like me. He get's mad at me when I tell him I don't want her around them. Is it wrong for me to not want my daughter around these kinds of people?? I honestly don't care if he thinks he's keeping her out of harms way I just don't want her around them. He tells me I give her too much attention and basically that I don't know what I'm doing. We got in a huge fight on Sunday cause he wouldn't tell me where he was/was going after I dropped her off. Now he's threatening to take ME to court for custody. What exactly is he capable of? Could he possibly get custody, even though he's been arrested like 6 times (right now he's on probabation, has lost his liscence for 2 years and is doing community service after being caught with a pound of weed, when I was pregnant he was accused of assaulting a girl but was found not guilty, and a few years ago he was arrested for selling alcohol to minors and then A WEEK LATER was arrested again for providing alcohol for minors at a party at his house.) I've never so much as had a parking ticket, let alone be in trouble with the law.
Sorry this is so long, I just really don't want her around him at all and I'm not really sure how custody/visitation rights work.... I don't care about child support, I don't want his money. If anything he needs my money. He's not even on the birth cerftificate. I want him out of my life!
