I am in a terrible situation. MY daughters father over the years had developed serious mental health issues. He has visitations and has her now until sunday. She is 3 yrs old. He never shows for vistiation but today he decided to pick her up from school and not tell me. so I go to school to get her and she is not there. I call him and he does not answer and when he finally does he will not let me know where she is and wont let her talk to me.
The courts refuse to listen to me. He is mentally ill. Everytime the cops come they comment on that the fact he doesnt seem mentally stable.. today I called the cops to do a well child check. they did and noticed he is kind of off and that his place is filthy. The advised me to call CPS, cps says they cant do anything. the police always say I should get a restraing order but they cant really help me. Lawyers say its a tricky case and CPS wont help. Courts wont ok supervisied visits. His own mother fears my daughter being alone with him.
When will someone help me? when its too late?!!!
right now its 12am and she is up and has not eaten all day but I cant do a thing

I would go to his house and call the police. Maybe they can help you if you are right there waiting for her. I'm so sorry, that's so horrible. Talk to the school also and let them know she isn't to go with anyone else period. Wow, that's just madness.

I am curious as to why CPS can't help you if his house is filthy. Maybe call the police on that issue. I know for a fact that the police can call CPS themselves so I'm not sure why they haven't already.

I am going with anonymous. It seems like everyone is failing you. I would get fed up and take her myself.
