Child abuse. Not sure how to feel right now.

My 3 year old daughter goes to her fathers every other weekend.

This time she came back with bruises, and i mean horrible black and blue bruises on her bottom, back of her legs and inside of her legs. He beat her with a belt, hard enough to leave BAD marks. One of the bruises is 5 inches wide and 7 inches long.

I called Social services and they are now involved, so is law enforcement. They told me to take her to the ER so i did, they took pictures and X rays. Talked to me and my daughter. Kaydee said that "Daddy spanked me with the belt cause i kept getting up to go pee pee."

Oh did i mention she has a UTI... So yeah she is on antibiotics and does need to pee a lot right now.

I am just shocked. I dont know what is going to happen.

Has anyone else gone through something similar? Does anyone know what could happen in these kind of cases? I mean will he lose custody or will they just watch him carefully and still let him get her?

I am so angry that i am calm. I need some peace of mind that he will pay for this and that my daughter will not have to deal with this again. 


EDIT. For those of you who asked i have primary residential and primary physical custody of my daughter.

What did social services say?

I would not allow unsupervised visitation again. Period. Ever.

If you have Social Services and Law Enforcement involved then it looks like they will pursue this and he will have to answer for what he has done.  I'm so sorry for your little girl, no child deserves to be spanked b/c they had to go to the bathroom.  I'll keep you both in my thoughts and prayers!

If I had to guess I would say they will either do supervised visits from now on or they will stop them all together.

Sorry you have to go through this, Mama! :(

i feel terrible for your daughter no child should be spanked like that especially at her age. i'm glad you followed your instincts and spoke out about this. the law deserves to be involved.
