My son is two years old and his father only shows interest in him when it suits him. I filed custody papers last month, and he flew off the handle when he was served with them.
Now he's trying to file for joint custody.
He can't hold a job, has no permanent address (right now, he's living with some friends, next week, who knows?) has a terrible temper and issues with drugs and alcohol.
After putting on a show before the judge, where he actually started crying and swearing he loves my son and would get a job to help take care of him, I'm now afraid he'll get what he wants and I'll have to share custody of my little boy with a man he doesn't know and who only wants anything to do with him when he's trying to get place to live (yes, I've caught him using my son to pick up women at the park).
Does anyone have any advice that might help me turn things to my favor and prevent this creep from getting what he wants?
