Is being Bi-polar enough reason to have your kids taken away? piog
That's what my poor Sil is saying :-( Here's the story.
My sil was married to this guy. She got pregnant soon after they married. They've always had a rocky relationship but things really went down hill when he was discharged from the Navy. When their daughter was 18 months old she got pregnant again. He had enough and left her. She moved in with her parents and got on Welfare.
After they separated the state went after him for child support. Trying to be nice, my Sil lied and said he visited their DD several times a week so his payments would be lowered. He actually didn't see her for almost 9 months, only stopping by to say hi when the new baby was born. He came to the hospital but didn't sign her birth certificate.
Even though they were separated, he still talked about getting back together. Then 3 days ago she was served with court orders. He was filing for divorce and seeking sole custody of their 2yo. Not the baby though.
Now here's the bad part. She's Bi-polar and not taking any meds. And during the last month she texted him that life wasn't worth living without him, she can't handle being a mom and could he take the girls for a week so she can get a break. That coupled with him "seeing" his daughter several times a week, I'm not sure who the judge will favor :-/
