I have a question. My husband just recently filed for divorce. We have no custody agreements on record and have not seen a judge about it yet. I am living in the residence we shared with our two year old son, and my husband moved out into a residence with a friend that I am not comfortable having my son stay at, nor do I know the people who live there. The friend is a prior criminal with a current bench warrant, the residence is in a very run-down trailer park that has a record of raids and drug problems, and I recently discovered that there is a registered sex offender at the residence RIGHT NEXT DOOR. Not to mention that the father will not allow me to view the residence, drop the child off there, or pick him up from there. He insists on taking our son there to stay when in his care, and I told him I am not comfortable with that. He is choosing to stay there as well - he has many family members in the area that would be happy to let him stay there, even if its just when he has our son with him. I do not want to keep my son and his father apart, and as long as he is residing in a place that I am comfortable with there is no issue. But if he will not agree to that, is there any legal way I can keep my son from having to stay there when in his father's care until we have a custody hearing? Thank you.
