I have a 5 year old. I have been threatened by her dad numerous times to let him pay what he wants or he will get more custody just to not have to pay as much. he wrote a letter that "i could have her" if he didnt have to pay. i took it to court and he changed his mind like he always does. the court gave me sole custody after hearing both parties and talking the the child. he abuses animals in front of her has been emotionally and physically abusive and neglegent to her as well. he only has supervised visits twice a month. she has only seen him 2 times in 6 months. he said hes doing the classes the court told him to do so that he can get 50/50 custody. i doubt that would happen but im so scared for her safety and well being. she is a different child now and i cant imagine her going back to the old child she was. he hasnt changed i can tell in the few short conversations i have had with him. I am so scared..... what is going to happen if he completes the classes and takes me back to court? what kind of visitation is he going to get?

Document everything... no matter how small it may seem at the time. If he has supervised visits twice/month and has only seen her twice in 6 months (as opposed to the 12 times he 'could' see her)... I can't see him getting 50/50 custody anytime soon. Hang in there!

keep a;; documentation, let him take you to court, anything he sends you that makes you nervous, KEEP IT! file harrassment suits against him. it is unlikely they will grant him 50/50 right away, they may not require his visits be supervised
