How dare he threaten me????? Did he really think I wouldnt call my attorney?

My ex has the audacity to make threats from JAIL (non-payment of child support) that if I do not drop my child support case to get hime out of jail he will fight me for visitation. Under NORMAL circumstances I would not deny any father visitation to a child... However, My child will turn 11 in less than 2 weeks. He has NEVER been a part of her life, the last time he even laid eyes on her or spoke to her was 7 years ago! If there was a line up of different girls (different ages even) he could NOT pick her out. He is a drug addict who lost his home and land ( travel trailer with no running water or electricity). The last time we argued about him being there for her his response was "You should've had an abortion because I didn't want kids!" WHAT???? I should kill my baby because YOU didnt want her? He has 3 other children he has done this too as well! I love my child and will do EVERYTHING in my power to protect her. And if that means keeping her from him guess what I will fight to my dying day to keep him away!

  • No home, no job, proven history of drug addicition, no contact in several years - I wouldn't be worried visitation.

  • What an ass!  He has hardly any rights!   He gave those up when he committed the crimes that landed him in jail.  Don't let him bully you like that!

  • What a loser! Stand your ground- as a child from a situation similar to this, I can GUARANTEE making her go to visits would be a hell of a lot more stressful and hurtful to her than not seeing her dad. You sound like an awesome mom, by the way, and I wish I had had someone like that in my corner when I was a kid.

  • I don't know why hes sayin that when it sounds like she doesn't even want him in her life so really his throwing that in his own face. Follow your heart, if it tells you to walk away from him for good then do it! :)

  • Way to go!!! Look out for the best interest of your daughter!!!!

  • I didn't want my son's father (more like just a sperm donor) around him so I left him before my son was born. He was JUST like your ex there. He doesn't have a leg to stand on. But I left my son's father's name off the BC so he can't go for rights without getting an EXPENSIVE dna test.
