The father of my children is always in and out of jail. He struggles with the addiction of meth. Since we have four boys together I have been back and forth on what to do. If he doesnt shape up and get his head on right im planning on pulling my kids away. I dont want them to go down the same path as their father but if he makes the effort to show hes changing im willing to let him be in my kids lives. any thoughts? advice please

What does your court order for the visitation say about dad and visits? Does it include those visits while he is in jail and how? Does it stipulate since he is on drugs or dealing with drugs all the time that he has supervised visitations?

Thats all been done. I have full Custody he has visitation rights. I guess what I am trying to say is if he keeps going back to jail do i continue to let him be in my kids lives? and let my kids as they get older make their own decision

You need to do this the legal way and get a lawyer and set up custody, visitation and child support. He might have to go through a program with the courts to even be able to see his kids supervised at this point but he does have the right to some sort of relationship with his kids if at all.
