I will probably get a lot of comments from angry moms, but all i want are opinions. My husband is about to go through a custody case. His ex did not know who the father was til my husband had his turn at the dna test when the baby was a month and a half old. Ever since then we have had the baby every thursday thru sunday. Everytime we pick him up he is dirty and smells like cigarrettes, which i do noy understand how a baby that cannot crawl yet gets dirty. The mother has moved 3 times now since the baby was born, being evicted from each home. She gets very angey with us if we use pampers instead of huggies or send him back in our clothes instead of ours. WE WERE ALSO TOLD NOT TO ROCK.HIM TO SLEEP BECAUSE ITS ANNOYING WHEN SHE HAS TO. the baby sleeps in a swing at her home but in a crib at ours, he needs som comfort. I think thas terrible of her to say. The last time we picked him up she told us when she was putting the baby to sleep her 4 and 6 year old 'gosh out' of the house and she could not find them for over 30 minutes, when they did come home they had a nadty cathouse someone had in their trash, which she had in the living room letting them play with it. I picked him up on friday the 28th, and about 3 hours later the mother was aressted on a warrant for possesion of an illegal substance. We also have medical records showing she did meth while 8 months prego. My husband only wants our home to be his primary residence and her to have supervised visits until she straightens up her life for her kids. What are his cgances? He just wants his son to be in a safe home. The mother has even told us hes not safe there.

I know, im just trying to get some opinions. We have a lawyer, but i have also heard it is very hard for a father to grt anything further than joint custody even if the mother does drugs. Also her other 2 kids have been taken away by cps twice.

I don't know why you would get angry comments, from what you described it's not a safe environment for him to be in and it doesn't sound like she's capable of being a mom right now. I would get an attorney and file for custody.
