  • The main thing is that you want to express your intentions of wanting nothing but the best for your child. No negativity about the other spouse in front of the child and show that your intentions are to do for your children and not because you are angry because of something that happened in the past.

  • Just answer his questions. I wouldn't voluntarily give info unless it's to express why you left and why you think the child is better off with you. You can give examples of what dad did over the years to voice your concerns

  • I agree with lawmom.. don't think about bad mouthing him, but don't sugarcoat anything either. Just answer his questions and express that you want what is best for your child and calmly give evidence of how your home is best.

    good luck
