I am going through family court and I feel as if my evidence on my sons father never is taken into consideration. He has made death threats and so far plead not guilty. I have solid proof of this. Anyone else going through the courts having a tough time keeping your child safe ?

If your court case has not yet been decided, how is it that you know it has gone unnoticed?

This is the problem though. He is facing four felonies and a gross misdemeanor. One of them being wreckless endangerment because he used his car as a weapon against my son and i while I was trying to drive away. He threatened to burn the house down with my son in the house and he never takes care of his basic needs when he gets visits. Aka food diaper water. He also comes back with marks on him. I have provided so Much solid proof (pictures recordings and letters from him on top of witness declarations and police reports)but it seems to have gone un noticed and I have a lawyer so I guess we will see what happens tomorrow when we go to court again. There is a lot to the story but I had to start somewhere.

I agree with Shawnn 100%. If the death threats are against you, it has no bearing on his relationship with his child.

Ashley,

If the threats were against you, the courts will still allow him to see his child, because he's got the right to do so, and he's not threatening the child.

If you feel that your attorney is not performing adequately, you can always get a new one.

You do need to understand, however, that both of you have rights to be parents, and it does need to be amiable. If you and he cannot get a long, then drop offs, etc can be done with a mediator, but he's still the child's father and has a right to parent him just as much as you do. If you have proof enough, request supervised visits through your attorney.
