Hi there. I'm in the state of Michigan.
I'm wondering if my situation with my ex is grounds for supervised visits with our son.
The reason we split was because I found out my ex had taken my son to the city to purchase marijuana. I of course was irate and had him leave the house. Since then he has continued to take our son to the city for these special trips.
In our custody agreement a certain friend of his was put in it that he was not allowed to be around our son during parenting time since he's a drug dealer.
Everything seemed to be ok until I found that my ex is now sleeping with and bringing the wife of the man who is in our custody agreement around our son. (This man is now in jail) The fact that she can easily take my ex (and my son who is only 4) to the drugs is what gets me.
There has been numerous times I've picked up my son from his fathers and his father is so incredibly high and my son tells me "that girl" was around and he never wants to go back there again because his daddy is mean and made him cry all day.
The icing on the cake for me was last weekend when my ex thought no one was home at my mothers house and went there to steal. Little did he know that my mother WAS home. He quickly turned around and got out of the house. This made me realize how bad his addiction has gotten.
He also lost an amazing job due to the drugs a month ago.
I absolutely want my son to have his father in his life. I'd just rather have him come to our house or to a controlled environment so I know that my son is not being neglected due to drug use.
According to my sons father it's all my fault and I'm not letting him see him. I've invited him over to see him but he doesn't want to be around me which I can understand because I feel the same way but of course I want my son to have a father figure in his life.
I'm not sure if any of this would be grounds for supervised visits. There is so much more that has happened but this is basically it in a nutshell. I just want the best for our son. He'll be put in these situations as he gets older. He does not need to be in them now.
