Anon I have a question for the group about gaining custody of your autistic child if the mother is unemployed and homeless living in a homeless shelter. Even more so, since I just found out a few months ago I was this child's father.
I have been informed that the mother of my child and my son, who is on the spectrum, are homeless and have been living in a shelter for the past few weeks. I have offered to take full custody of my son to give him a better life than she can currently give him.
At first, she was ok with me taking him, then literally an hour later she was wanting to change her mind. I have a screenshot of her posting on Facebook about possibly giving him up to foster care. I definitely don't want that to happen, and want to do anything I can to prevent it. I'd also like to add that she has been unemployed for the past 4 years.
What is the best way for me to gain custody, so my son doesn't have to suffer for his mother's actions? I have a very steady career, friends and family and a girlfriend who are more than willing to help me out, a house with very respectable roommates (two of which are in the military), and the resources to get him a proper education in a public school that is tailored to his needs. Any insight or information is greatly appreciated.
Anon Can you post. Today a judge ruled that my ex wife have primary psychical custody of the children . Ive had them since April. We had a move away trial, and because I did not complete my domestic violence classes but had them extended until 2020 they should go to her. During his decision he told her she used the children as pawns, she psychologically abused them, told them things about me to make them not want to come with me, and continued to put our children in danger because her current live in boyfriend had abused her in front of them. I submitted his criminal convictions which include battery, burglary, criminal threats, domestic violence. He is currently a fugitive. The children told the mediator that their mom had told them what to say. I was convicted because my daughter said she saw me punch her mom. They interviewed her 5 months later in 2015. Report taken the night of the incident said the children were not in the room. I subpoenaed CPS records for our trial and the judge read a document today saying that the children said they were not in the room. She keeps stating during our hearings that they all saw, and they began saying that also, despite them telling me their mom told them what to say. December I have to give her primary custody despite her boyfriend not completing his classes and being a fugitive. Can I stop this until I can appeal? Will a motion to set aside orders work?
Anon I wanted to reach out on behalf of my husband who is going through a nasty custody battle with his ex wife. she currently had sole custody and is trying to have this changed to joint custody and would like his daughter to live with us.
his daughter is in 3rd grade but is testing over a year behind in math and reading. she has VERY poor dental hygiene. My husband also feels like his daughters mental health is at stake.
naturally his ex wife is throwing accusations of abuse at my husband. We even have a court document accusing my husband of abusing our dog....or dogs are FAR from abused. I have been married to my husband for almost two years and together for over 3. he has never hit me or the dogs, and on TWO occasions has spanked his daughter....which was OVER a year ago.
anyways, we are concerned that she will try bulldozing my husbands case with her fabricated stories. we are trying to find a fathers right advocate that can help my husband through this difficult time.
I share custody (no court order needed) with my ex. I know first hand that co parenting is possible. I let my son see and talk to his dad when ever he asks!
we need to stop my husbands ex wife from ripping his daughter away from him again! I hope you can help or refer me to someone who can! thank you!
The South Dakota Fathers' Rights Movement Every day we hear stories of separation, pain and hopelessness right here in South Dakota. Through TFRM it is our goal to provide advice, support and awareness through each and every one of these devastating situations. Far too often family courts, along with society, assume one parent is more important than the other despite study after study showing the traumatic and damaging effects this separation has on our children. We are so appreciative to have been a part of this truly heart warming and touching moment and want to thank this family for inviting us to share this video. As beautiful as this moment is, we also know it is a rare one and far too many other children will not be so fortunate. This is why we’re here. -Jordan SD State Lead
