My princess is 6 years old. Her father is not on her birth certificate and has never paid any child support even though there is an order for it. He has been in and out of prison most of her life and has not seen her since she was 3 years old. I gave him a chance to be in her life when she was little because he said he wanted to be. He was supposed to get her every other weekend according to the schedule we agreed on. He got her at best once every 2 months. He went back to prison in 2013 for a year and a half. While he was in prison, it was discovered that my daughter had been molested and the person she kept talking about matched the description of her father's next door neighbor before he went to prison. His neighbor was 16 years old at the time. He was never arrested because she refused to talk to the police but she was referred to counseling for the situation and has been in counseling for almost 2 years and will probably require counseling as she gets older. When he was released from prison in 2014, he tried to see her but I would not let him. He has called her a liar and said she made the whole thing up. He has not tried to contact me again until recently and has called me an unfit mother and that my daughter is living in poor conditions and is not being taken care of. He has threatened me and my family and the night after he contacted me, someone keyed my truck and scratched the word Bitch on my hood. I am currently in the process of filling and injunction against him. I do not feel my daughter is safe with him and I do not want her to see him. She has made a lot of progress since she has been in counseling and is actually started to be a happy child again. I am also in the process of filling for sole custody through the court some any chance of him getting rights to her is terminated. Most people who know about the situation agree with how I'm hand lingerie it but there are some that say that I am wrongoing and he should have anot her chance to be in her life even though she was molested while in his care and evenot though he said she is making it all up. My question is, am I wrong for not wanting to give him another chance? My daughters safety and well being is the most important thing to me. I would like some honest opinions but please no negativity.
