My ex boyfriend who is not my child's bio dad and we were never married has filed for custody of my daughter.
He has helped raise her for 5 years, and insists that he has more rights as a parent than I do.
This man has been arrested for theft while my daughter was in his care, and is on supervised probation for another year. He also had a child service's complaint filed against him while my child was in his care.
I have allowed the relationship between the two of them to continue because I don't have the heart to take away the only dad my child has ever known, yet him and I can not get along. We are constantly arguing and he is always going against my parenting wishes. We have been apart for 2 years now and he still berates me as a mother, name calls, and threatens to ruin my life if I don't let him see her.
My daughter has mental heath issues that need addressed but he refuses to see it. I have been diagnosed with mental health issues as well but nothing that is dangerous to my parenting. When I have depressive phases, I allow her to stay with him at his home, then she comes back to my home.
I have never been arrested or investigated by child services. Does anyone know if he has any chance in court of winning?
