My daughter is 3yrs. old and had not seen her father in 2years. We was never married to each other, but he was married with 3 kids at home. Over the last year, I filed for Child Support. and they done a DNA which came back 99.98% his. The results came back in July 09. In May of this year, his wife called me and told me that they was going to take me to court in a month or two. They still have not done so. They want her every other weekend and 2 weeks in the summer. I do not want this. They live 3 hours away, and I know that there is 4 kids and 2 adults living in a 2br trailer. I also know for a fact, and have pictures of their house NASTY. Also from what I was told Social Services had been called on them several times for the kids being unfed, and not took care of. I do know that he was ordered to take anger management classes. Before you ask, no he was not like this when I knew him. If so, he hid it well around me. He had been paying his child support this year up until a few weeks ago. Now he is behind almost $1000.00. Is there any way that he can get visitation of my daughter?

  1. He is her father and he SHOULD have visitation ESPECIALLY if you expect him to support her financially. PERIOD. If you felt as though he is unfit to be dad then you should have refrained from having a child with him.
