Hi all, I've never posted here before, but I'm desperate for some direction.
WE were not granted visitation with the hubby's son.
We recently were granted visitation with my husband's son.
WE still do not have an agreement and WE do not pay child support.
Prior to going to court, we had no agreement (though we did pay child support),
You are lucky to see him now. Dad apparently did not marry mom. And hence had a child out of wedlock.
and we saw him whenever his mom decided it was okay with her.
Dad and MOM live 3.5 hours apart. And if you did driving that was on you. YOU did not have to.
We live 3.5 hours apart, and we did all the driving prior to the court order.
Oh WE do NOT have regular scheduled visits. Hubby does. And oh well on them being unhappy.
Now we have regular scheduled visits; his mom has to drive one way, and she and her new husband are VERY unhappy with the arrangement.
DFS is REQUIRED to follow up on ALL reports.
In the past few months, my stepson's mom and her husband have reported us to DFS a number of times, for offenses ranging from a splinter in his finger to there not being enough pairs of socks at our house to us getting his hair cut without their permission. The DFS has not followed up on any of the reports (and we don't wonder why),
but upon asking the mom why they don't just talk to us about any complaints they have, she responded that she thinks going through DFS is the best way, and that they will be taking their problems that route.
YOU do NOT have a custody order.
I am concerned about what effect this may have on my husband and I. Will it affect our credit or disqualify us from jobs that require security clearance? Will a giant pile of DFS reports ultimately get our custody order repealed, even if all the reports are frivolous?
If all the reports are frivolous dad can file a harassment complaint against mom IF he can prove she has filed them.
Maybe more importantly, is there anything we can do?
I gave you information and help.
Does anyone here have any experience with this kind of thing?
ANY help would be most gratefully appreciated.
Thanks.What is the name of your state?
Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.
