  • I know how frustrating and stressful this is, You can try to document your problems, but a lot of people have poor parenting skills, and they don't lose their children. It isn't easy to terminate, or even get supervised visitation for kids, without documentation that he has been seriously neglectful, abusive, or endangered them in some provable way.

    You don't have to have direct contact with him so that he can get in your face about your child, but it will be difficult to limit his visitation. Check into court mediation, and again, I really recommend a good lawyer.

  • thanks
    only sad thing is that the lawyers so this as a big mess and usually do not want to help so I have no lawyer.

  • I sometimes think some parents are extra permissive to try to win a child's favor against another parent, SO wrong! Keep doing what you're doing, even though I know it's a hard sitaution. Good luck!

  • You can't limit a parent's visitation based on different parenting skills. Practically all split homes have different parenting skills.
