For you to feel that you need to start a custody case/revise a current one?

I have court next month, first court date to determine custody. I am just wondering what some mothers feel is inappropriate behavior for your child(ren) to be around?

My ex comes and goes as he pleases. Therefore I took action to either make him in his life or out. It definitely isn't fair to the child to have a part time Dad.

I agree. I told my ex he is either in or out and to make a decision. He choose to stop coming around all together and if he ever would ask to visit (which I highly doubt) I would tell him to take me to court. It causes more pain for the child to have an undependable part time dad then to never know their dad at all.

Two days after my daughter was born ( after a very hard labor and delivery while still in the hospital) her father who had flown in for her birth (we arn't together) informed me that I needed to choose what I was going to do with her. Confused I asked what he was talking about he told me I was too emotional to raise his child, that I could either give her up for adoption or he was taking her. I had never seen such an eruption of ciaos from the other people (The Minster of my church included). Police and Human Services were then called. I'm still afraid to let her leave my side, because I don't want to lose her....shes only 20 days old

Oh my lanta!! Has he seen her since? Is he still in your area? 

I know how you feel. My ex had our DS over night and then said he wasn't going to return him. Thankfully, I talked him into returning him. Another reason why I'm filing for a custody agreement. Lol.
