I need some quick advice about allowing my psycho ex-bf allowing his Mother to see my daughter.
She is only 7 months old and has NEVER seen any part of her father's family-all for good reasons. My ex-bf is a convicted felon who has a history of violence, alcoholism, and family history of violence, alcoholism, drugs, and abuse.
I have done all I can to prevent him from seeing us. I have a protective order against him until next year in June. I also have sole custody, full visitation, and child support on him.
But yesterday, (and they have NEVER tried anything until now) I received a letter saying his Mother will be represented by some attorney in the county outside of mine. I know that doesn't mean we have a court date, but it pisses me off to no end to think she can try and waltz into our life and think its ok. I understand her wanting to see her granddaughter, but she has NO INVOLVEMENT whatsoever in her other daughters life. BTW- she also has been married....5 times? She has 3 children, each from 3 different men, and she married a guy between my ex-bf and his younger "half" sister. Now she's remarried to an alcoholic, possible drug using, low life. I know thats harsh, but she used to rant and rave at my ex bf and I about our relationship and I feel she has no place to judge. I know neither do I, but I couldn't save myself from the relationship I will do EVERYTHING possible to protect my daughter from that type of harm or any harm.
My ex bf's Mother also has a history of physical and verbal abuse against everyone in her family. She never had an issue cussing me out or throwing me out when she had a bad day. So I fear some how she will get some rights to my daughter-even though I know VA has very limited grandparent rights to their grandchildren.
I've been given much advice from family and friends not to stress because it tearrs you down, but its terrifying to imagine my ex bf's family touching, seeing, having a relationship with my daughter.
ANY SUGGESTIONS?!?! I've already talked to my lawyer and now we wait..... :(
Thank-you for any help!
