Hi, I've found this site on google and loved hearing all different answers with moms' questions! Maybe y'all can give me some sound advice, please?
My kids' dad and I have been on-and-off for 9 years now - he was with a girl whom he lived with for about 2 years. All the while he wanted to get back together, but I didn't give in until last year. Well, somewhere after we got back together they were messing around and she got pregnant. I didn't find out until she was 5 months along. We split up in late January of this year and he went back to her "because he had nowhere else to stay" and was there for the birth of the baby, but begged to come home and he left her after the baby was about a month old. There is a lot of history in-between. We met while she was pregnant on my request to discuss the situation moving forward and I requested that there be a paternity test before my kids met the baby and she was all for it at the time. Now that they are no longer together, she has filed for CS and has told him not to fight for visitation because the baby is "not allowed around Elle".
My question is, can she request that, and would a judge actually entertain that? Her friends and her have sent me ugly texts and posted comments online towards me, but I haven't responded once and there's no legitimate reason why she would want me away from the baby other than she's just bitter.
