I just recently put my daughter's father on child support but he is always getting into trouble with the law. What can I do to limit or stop sleep overs? I don't want them to stop seeing each other but I am very afraid something might happen to her while it's his weekend.

No I haven't because he is quick to shut me out and thinks I'm always in a bad mood. I tried having a talk with him because I am the one or my mother is the one who is always dropping her off and picking her up on his weekends. Then he gets upset because of the timing but that is why he needs his own transportation and a cell phone to contact me where he is at. I don't have time to be guessing but I see what you mean. I am just afraid something bad might happen to her and I did nothing but if i do something his whole side of the family will hate me and keep an even closer eye on me and try to take her away from me but I have no record and I am a responsible mother.

Have you had a discussion with him about it?

If CPS get involved, there is nothing you would have to worry about on your end. In fact, it will likely back your case to have supervised visitation only.

She is 5. She loves going to her dads apartment because she has two little sisters. I just don't like that when I go over I smell weed and there are guys hanging outside his apartment. I start to think the worst. This is the second time I hear he's been to jail and I am afraid something like this will happen again with my daughter being around and what if cps gets involved?

I'm pretty sure they won't stop visits altogether. At worst case, you could consider supervised visitation. How old is your daughter.

Well the lady told me I would need a lawyer for that and I don't have that kind of money and If I take him to court I am afraid they might not let her see him at all and then the whole side of his family will talk about me and put things into my daughters head. I want them to have a bond but I can't sleep at night when she's away because I know he does drugs and he has his friends over. I just don't feel like it's a safe place for her. He has no car or cell phone. No way I can call him to see how she is doing and what If something happens? what car will they have? Maybe I am just being a little over protective...

Do you have court orders for visitation? If not, then that is where to start.
