Talk to a lawyer today...

So I called legal aid today to make sure of my rights and the laws regarding my childrens custody. The lawyer told me that in my state I have full legal and full physical custody until he is granted otherwise by a judge. Good news for me. I was advised to write a visitation plan that he has to agree with if he wants to continue to see the children. This way, if he breaks the plan and I stop allowing visits, I can prove to a judge that I am being resonable and he was the one who did not want to be resonable. I really wanted to make sure that he has to give the kids back to me and that the cops would help me get them back if he tried to keep them. All is fine. I feel calmer now knowing that I can keep my kids and I feel better about visits to where he is. I am going to take the next week drafting a visitation plan. What would be some things you ask for? I know I will make it clear that my one son is to not have any dairy since he is allergic and his dad keeps sending him back in a reaction.

I guess I would include who drops off/picks up the kids. If it goes back and forth you don't want to be a taxi service. What would be the consequences if he misses a scheduled visitation?

There is no way in hell I would let someone with a drinking problem alone with my kids. EVER.

Or let my child be alone with someone that doesn't understand that ignoring an ALLERGY could mean severe reaction, even death!

He only has a bar and driving home problem. His mom, whom he lives with, makes wine because she is addicted. She starts before breakfast and goes to bed with a glass. He is a horrible driver and has caused accidents while sober.
