|Hi there. I know a lot of you will judge me but I really need advice on what to do so I will be 100% honest.
My son who is 7 has lived with me since he was 2, his father lives about 200 miles away and gets him every other weekend and holidays. We have joint custody but he recently filed for sole custody for me to have supervised visitation.
This started because I didn't let him take our son all summer, I let him take him for 1 month straight instead of 2 weeks on 1 week off... It made less driving for him and that was suppose to be it. He claims this deal never happened and wanted him the remaining weeks of the summer, I didn't let him and he went crazy. He then filed.
Since getting his attorney they have dug up some things I'm afraid might make me lose my child.
About 2 years ago I was arrested for Domestic violence against my current husband, the charges were dropped for me going to classes but they got the photos and everything from the night.
They also pulled up 911 call outs to my home. A year ago my husband and I got into a fight, I locked myself in my car and my husband called the cops saying he was afraid I would kill myself. They came out and took a full report, now my ex has it. 2 reports are from me withholding time from him.
They pulled my medical reports, I currently am on a depression pill and was 100% honest will my doctor. The report states that I drink 3x's a week and average 8 beers as well as 2 per day, at the time I had a drinking problem. I also said I smoke, was depressed, anxiety and suicdial thoughts. I thought this stuff was private, but its not.
They also have random other things but those are the major factors. My current husband who we just recently filed for divorce beat me and I was very depressed and dealt with my issues wrong.
My child father thinks he and his wife are saints and thats the image they are portraying. She doesn't have a speeding ticket and he has nothing on him.They have a son and one on the way, will her being pregnant hurt there case?
I have my court date next month and don't know what to do to prepare. I had an attorney but when all these things came in she dropped me.
I'm really scared I'm going to not only lose physcial but be put on supervised time with my son.
I know I will get some negative, I know I messed up but I want to keep my son more than anything
