Quoting :*:CHRiSTiNe:*::" Awesome!! I only worry because I hear CT is very pro joint custody and its hard to fight it. Theres more ... [snip!] ... parents house I am not okay with. Obviously I know Ill have to wait to see what the judge decides but I just wanted opinions."
Quoting :*:CHRiSTiNe:Get all your ducks in a row before you go and make sure you have proof to back it up. They are very pro joint here as well. But yea no matter what he will still get visitation. I'm not sure if they release DHS records or not but if you could get those that would be great...pictures of the house ect. When we went to court the judge disregarded everything I had to say because it was "he said/she said".
Quoting ----&&:" My guess is prob not but I didn't think they'd give joint custody to someone with previous assault charges either.... "
Quoting ℳonster's ℳom:" Really? That's crazy!! I don't know if maybe it's your state but in CA one of my best friends SD lost custody because he has previous abuse & anger management issues."
Quoting :*:CHRiSTiNe:*:You can get police reports yes...at least here anyways. You can ask your lawyer to do, they will charge you more but they may have an easier time of getting the info. They are probably going to make you go to mediation first, if that's the case be really adamant about what you want. You will also have a better chance of getting what you want if you can make it seem like you have a bunch of stuff against him. Because there its not up to the judge its totally between you two.
Quoting :*:CHRiSTiNe:*::" DO NOT QUOTE PLEASE! Joint custody to the sperm donor say if he doesnt have a job, no car, is sleeping ... [snip!] ... pretty much their whole childhood. What do you think the outcome of a living situation like that would be like? Just curious."Well depending on where you live, in MY opinion
