Not sure on full custody. I know where I live you can't force the non-custodial parent to follow visitation unless it specifically says that in the agreement. Generally, child support also has nothing to do with visitation. A man who doesn't pay child support still has a right to visit his kids. Or, putting it another way, a child has a right to a relationship with BOTH parents even if one of them is not supporting them financially.

If you don't like the drinking and smoking in front of the kids, you need to have that specified in the orders. Otherwise, unless it is harming them, it is none of your business.

And are you seriously asking if not paying child support is evidence of him brainwashing your kids? What planet do you live on? The two have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

All I can suggest is that you talk to a lawyer and discuss taking him to court for either contempt (depending on what your current orders say) or an amendment to the current orders. I highly doubt you will get full custody with no visitation from dad.
