Me and my girlfriend have been dating for a few months. she had a 4 year old daughter with her ex and has set up days to suit him when he can see her. on Sunday he went to the pub from 2pm till 9pm with his daughter in tow whilst he got drunk. she never got given any dinner and had school the next day too. when he did stumble out of the pub dragging his daughter across a main road in the process he ended up at a friends house without knowing why.?? my girlfriend went to his house and found two apology letters to the friends stating he was sorry and that he knew he had put his daughter in danger but is upset over the split. my girlfriend is beside herself as she has given him every opportunity to be a dad and have his daughter. now she is thinking of trying for supervised visits only because she is scared for her daughters welfare. please advise all. thanks

She needs to get court ordered visitation in place. No hearsay will be allowed, so full documentation of any dangerous activities while the child is with him will be needed.
