Hey to all my mommy friends i need advice... Timmy is taking me to court for visitation rights, dont get me wrong i offer to let him see are son at his moms but he doesnt want me there... i dont feel as if my son is safe alone with his dad... accounted to his history of family violence and substance abuse and im scare if i let him take our son ill never see my baby again.... any advice
Is the history of violence and abuse documented in the courts? If so I assume the court will take that into account
tell that to the courts. does he have an records on file about his bad past? bring those up if so to prove he isnt safe alone with him
If he has a documented record of those, I highly doubt he'd win.

Ask you can do is take it to court and voice your concerns. You unfortunately have to leave it to the judge
If there's a custody agreement, he can't take him away. If there isn't, he can. Anyway, if there's already a court date set up, it's not for anyone but the judge to decide.
If you have full physical custody, he can't take him (legally). If you feel that his visits should be supervised, say so during the hearing.

Actually, that depends. Physical custody can be defined just as that-whoever is physically in possession of the child. If there's nothing legal set up, then whoever has the child living with them is the custodial parent. If the dad takes the child for visitation and does not return him, then there's nothing she can do about it, except to take it to the court.
If he's just asking to see the child more, then he certainly is required by law to return him to you.
I'm sure the courts know all about his history.
If they allow him to see his son more, you don't have much of a choice. He can't become a better father unless you give him that opportunity.
My son is three months and his father doesnt communticate with me i have to go through his mom.. and he been to jail twice and just recently he served all his charges so he done with all that. He has grabbed his little brother who six and screamed at him you want me to give you something to cry about and threw him on the couch.. and i said something so he grabbed me throwing me against the wall..
i offer to take my son to his fathers mom so his father can see him but his dad wants him alone and at his apartment with his gf. his dad has made one bottle and change about a dozen diapers in three month and the times he did see him he spent 20 minutes with him and then started playing the game and i asked him to change and he started fighting with me.. my has not had one diaper rash because i change him when its need his father has let him sit in it until i took m son and changed him myself

no we didnt call the cop or anything we just stay at the neighbors until he left

Lesson learned. Call the police. Your only hope in using that in court is having your neighbor testify against him.
