Ok, DH wants temporary full custody of his 3 kiddos, but I'm not so sure it's a great idea. BM recently had her car repoed bc she took out a title loan in order to pay her gf's probation off so she wouldn't go to jail and it didn't get paid.. She had to come up with 1646 in 21 days but decided to let it go . A few days later her gf comes home telling her she's been talking to another girl at work. They get into it and gf leaves. BM says she's done. BM also does not have a job. The past 2 interviews she's had she never went to bc something came up and she canceled. BM has a 4 mth old, no car, only has enough child support to pay rent between DH and her other daughter's daddy. DH is concerned about her not having any transportation and not being able to pay bills like electric and water. She has no car to get to work. I said take a taxi but she didn't care much for that but without a source of income she up shit creek without a paddle. DH wants temporary full custody until she gets her ducks in a row and back on her feet. He wanted to try and do it outside of court but I doubt she will agree. She won't see it as trying to help but taking care of 4 kids and being in the position she's in is going to be tough. The main reason I don't want to do it is bc we all get along for the most part and are able to communicate well and compromise without arguing anymore. I don't want things to go back how they used to be, but I also want the kids to be taken care of.
