  • Go to court and get your legal visitations. Thats all you can do, and you can keep going back for more and more rights until you feel that he is safe - at this age he needs to be safe more than anything else.

  • You need to file the emergency custody papers and possibly call CPS on her.

  • Call in CPS to check her home. Let them know your suspicions and make a report. If they find anything they will make a decision as to if the child is safe there or not. Get a custody order with the court. Request drug testing in order to establish the order. If she threatened to hurt him then let cps and the court know that you fear for his safety. GOOD LUCK

  • BTW, there is absolutely not benefit to him seeing his mom when she is like this. It's detrimental and you need to protect the child.

  • I agree with all the posts. Your son doesnt need her when she is acting this way. if she wants to see him, then she either sees him when someone, like you or a court ordered supervisor, is around or she doesnt get to see him. File for complete custody and have them order a drug test. maybe suggest some form of rehab before she can see him. Your childs safety is #1! Keep up the good work
