Gone is the past, its the past 4 a reason. Bring in the new n stick with it if your being treated properly. I agree with 1 of the comments which says document everythin, some1 has to prove you are unfit and 1st impressions play a big part

@tiffani Christmas
My advice is that your baby's father needs some counseling before you think of getting back w him. He is sick, abusing a women is not normal!! & it sounds like he abused you in different ways :( for your safety & your kids safety have him look for help! & it sounds like this new guy is loving & cares for you! Really think about your decision! My mom once told me "don't give up the guy you love for the guy you like"

NC system r usually in favor of the mother! My ex tried to prove me unfit cause i have lupus n take pain meds but it backfired on him! Lol! He lost n now he's mad n hasn't spoken to our son in 4 yrs. The judge have us joint custody with me having primary! When men try for full custody...they usually try because they're mad at us! Good luck! I'm sure everything will b fine:)

Really, document EVERYTHING. It's always a good idea when you're involved in the court system. Every phone call, drop off, doctors visit, etc. If there are any texts or emails, save them (including your responses). And always behave in a manner like someone is watching over your shoulder. That means do not engage in childish behavior, no bickering back and forth (no matter how aggravating he's being). Don't engage if he's trying to pick a fight.
Just conduct yourself in all situations in a proper and adult manner. You should be fine :)

Integrate children into society around you, get them into classes close to ur home ie swimming, hockey, art classes, language classes all provided by ur community/city. That's what my lawyer told me

Hello Ladies. I need some very good advice. I am 23 and a mother of 2 beautiful girls.I met my kids father when I was 16 and he was 23 I am no longer with him and uts been about a year. We had a horrible relationship we were together for 5 yrs and there was nothing but arguing and fighting everyday. I was verbally abused all the time. He put me down and made me feel so low. I felt worthless. I gained 30lbs while i was with him and when I finally lost it I felt so good. Right after I lost the weight i started to cheat on him.. I was so unhappy with him and very careless. Every chance he had he would make me feel worthless so at the time in my head I felt that cheating on him and having sex with other guys would make me feel worthy (WRONG).I felt more disgusting about myself. But It was so hard for me to stop. Finally I left him and its been a year now. I met a WONDERFUL man who just so happens to be my childs fathers worst enemy, which i did not know until after the fact. He so amazing treats me how I want to be treated, makes me feel so special, brings the best out in me. BUT now my kids father is claiming that he wants to change and that he wants to work things out. I'm so confused because this new guy is so asweome. I mean AWESOME ladies. But i feel like my heart is still with my kids father. I told the new guy that I need sometime to figure out what I want. But I don't want to end up making the wrong decision. I'm confuuuuused ladies. Need some good advice. :(

Well, hopefully you can just be yourself! If he is claiming unfit, he'd want to have some evidence.
