I live in Ohio. I have a 3 yr old daughter who never saw her father until about 6months ago. He has never paid a penny in child support or asked to see her. Then out of no where I get a court date where he was suing me for full custody. Obviously, he didn't win,but the judge did give him the "standard" visitation. I spent $7,000 to fight that and he still got the standard visitation. He is about $11,000 behind in support and has now paid a total of $16!!!!. My problem is his girlfriend. He has 3 small babies with her. She is actually cruel to my daughter. She tells my daughter she hates her and calls her names like cry baby and tells her to shut up. Every time my daughter comes home she has learned a new curse word over there. The girlfriend sends me emails where she calls my daughter names and says I have to be nice to her or something could happen to my daughter. She will call me and ask if i hear the crying and tell me that is my daughter crying herself to sleep like she does every night that she is there. She never does this in front of my daughters father and he won't read the emails she sends. What can I do? I can't afford another attorney now. However, I don't trust her with my daughter and I don't want her there. Her father is gone almost the entire time she is there.
