My ex is trying to get shared legal custody, (I currently have sole legal & physical) he is also asking for more visitation. He doesn't have a job or a car. He recently moved 1,500 miles away without even contacting our daughter or the child support office with his new address. He hasn't paid child support or contacted our child since October 12. He didn't send Xmas gifts or even a card. I have no clue where he lives or the conditions of his home.. Will a judge allow him visitation? I was hoping to get the judge to allow it only if he came to our state to see her, at least until he can get on his feet & get a stable income/car/home. She's 8 years old & he's been in & out of jail her entire life (felony burglary, domestic violence & contempt charges), never been involved in her schooling or anything. (Just an FYI, I had her when I was 16 & raised her with no help from him, he was 21 at the time of her birth & is almost 30 years old now, nothing to show for it, & $17K behind in support.) I'm just a bit nervous about the upcoming court date, any advice would be much appreciated.
