When I left my sons dad, I filed for child support immediately. Well the child support was supposed to be in effect August 15, 2012. He has since made 7 payments. He has the option to see him every other weekend, but fails to communicate when he’s coming to get him or if he’s coming at all. 100% of the time he doesn’t show up, or call. I have no contact with him whatsoever. I also don’t have a current address for him, I do know his moms address, and that he currently is in Pleasant Hill, MO.
My son’s dad has a violent past with drug abuse, theft, dealing, and chopping cars. In the 5 years we were together I saw things and lived things that no one should ever have to indure in a lifetime. I never felt safe.
Currently, he was car jacked and shot, before that he fell off a bridge at work, and then was hit by a car( which I later found out was a lie). Also yesterday morning I woke up to a phone call from his ex-girlfriend asking if I knew where my sons dad was. I said “No” and preceeded to ask why. She stated that he had broken into he apartment and stolen a bunch of things. With his past and numerous people looking for him, I do not feel safe with my son around him. He is not a vital part of my sons life, and I firmly believe him showing up every month or two will do more emotional harm and cause long terms psychological effects, then him not being there.
I am married to a wonderful man, who my son calls dad. He is the perfect person and is willing to adopt my son as his own. do you ladies think I have chance at getting sole p & L custody?
