I am the mother of two boys and two step sons. In the past three years my stepsons mother has not takin the youngest to the dr. before his meds run out four times. He has come to the house and when asked why he did not have his meds he replied that his mother hadnt taken him to the dr to get another script. Lately or should I say since she told the dr that she didn't want him on some of the meds and the stupid dr took him off, his mood swings, behavior and all around demenor has completely crumbled. We have documented all of this and have the receipts where we (my husband and I) have had to go once she finally got the script a week earlier and pick up his meds. This has happened four times in the last year. not the three we have been together. Do we have enough to get her on neglect and get custody of the kids?

Since his behavior is a matter of "opinion" and not fact I don't think that would hold up very well. I'm not a lawyer or a judge though so I don't know. Forgetting a prescription 4 times? Sounds flaky to me. If I WERE a judge, you'd have to come up with a lot more than that.
