  • Get it in writing before you let your ex have visitation. If you are not legally separated and nothing is in writing the cops can not take the kid from him to give your kid back to you. Which means you can go with out seeing your kid until it is all written up. And if that happens than he is favored when you all go to court for actual custody if you go through with the divorce. If you two are civil than go together to get something written up so that both of you are protected.
