My son is technically my step son though I love him like my own. His mother was with SO for five years and then just walked out after a year with her son. While she was here she would spend 14 hours on facebook a day. If he cried, she'd put him in his room and lock the door in the midst of summer without a fan. She would give him nothing to eat or drink either.
When she left she took every last cent out of Olivers savings account and closed it. She decided she wanted to "live her own life". Later she came and asked to take him to Knoebel's for the day since it was her Birthday. SO packed him two bottles, two changes of clothes, diapers and wipes. She brought him back in a car that had all the windows rolled up and five ppl smoking inside. He was severely dehydrated, filthy, wearing only a diaper, he hadn't been fed and his things were gone, diaper bag and all.
Then she disappeared again. After half a year of absence she showed up (once she found out I was with SO) saying SO had no right to keep him from her and she was going to sue for custody.
She was never ever told she couldn't see him. She was told she could come and see him for an hour or two when she wanted to, but she can not take him, we will not provide transportation for her, it has to fit into our schedule as we are his primary care takers, and we must have at least two days notice.
Considering her previous irresponsible treatment, abuse and thievery, are we being unreasonable like she says we are? Or are we totally within our rights? Would we have to worry about losing him if she does take this to court?Answer Question
