So i don't want to write too long of a paragraph but here are the basic things i need advice on. My daughter is 5 months. Me and the father split and i have a restraining order on him. He threw me on the floor when i was holding my daughter. She was taken to the hospital and was inpatient. nothing wrong though thank god.
After that i got the restraining order and now i filed for custody. he did not see her in 3 months. I am scared by filing for custody that i am opening the door for visitation, Being he hasn't seen her and I know that the courts will grant him visitation.
It is concerning because i do not want him to have her overnight i know he lived with his mom and dad and he smokes weed with his dad. he has no crib, or travel system...no job either yet retained a great lawyer.
He even had a lawyer for the restraining order. The court said "a third party may facilitate in partial physical custody periods. I retained a lawyer too ...i am writing to see if any one has been through a similar experience and what the outcome was.
Court date is 3 weeks away i am so nervous and even thought of withdrawing the petition because he hasn't seen her and i know by going that he will get to see her. HELP!
