Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: My sons father doesn't follow the court order in place and he blocks my cell phone number and my fiances from contacting to wonder WHY he's not getting my son. His girlfriend has text me and told me what he is doing and when he has gotten Caleb he teaches him that it's okay to hit women! And there is domestic violence but I do not know how to prove it unless his girlfriend said it to the judge .

Answer: If there is a court order regarding visitation or custody of the child, you may need to file a petition to have the visitation changed. If domestic violence (with you) is an issue, you may need to get an order of protection, which can also cover the child. If the domestic violence is with the girlfriend in front of your son when he is there, you may need to discuss this with an attorney to see what you can do regarding the safety of the child.
