My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Ca.
I am going through a child custody battle of sorts and had a few questions of the likelihood of supervised visits. I filed for divorce and Custody of our daughter I asked for joint legal custody and sole physical custody with supervised visits for my ex he has major anger issues and has broken things and thrown things as well as fought with me in front of the children many times calling me names during the fights as well once he also hit me and i called the police i was preg at the time with our daughter and when the sheriff came he almost refused to write a report because he didn't want me to go to jail as well because in ca. almost every time there is a domestic dispute both party's go to jail until they can find who is at fault so under his recommendation i did not file a report i do have photo evidence of holes he put in the wall as well as a photo of a dent he put in his vehicle after an argument between us. he also smokes weed but has a medical marijuana card which makes it legal for him to smoke but the reasons he gave to the doc to get the card were false (migraines, back pain) when we were together he never complained of any ailments I have migraines myself and manage with Excedrin migraine why cant he??? And ever since the baby was born he has never had her alone never even asked to take her anywhere alone claiming he could not handle her while she was small that she needed me and only me so his visits have always been supervised. I have always initiated visits as well he never calls to see his daughter he always rely's on me to make the effort. Recently his visits even tho i call him every week have become sparatic seeing our daughter maybe once every couple of weeks if that And when he does come she crys and wants away from him because she does not know him. Her first birthday was this last weekend he didn't even show up for that as well not a phone call a present nothing. He also doesnt have a place for her to stay he rents a room from people who party all the time they have no other rooms for rent i have proof of the partys that go on at the house from posts on facebook. What do you think the likely hood of supervised visitations will be I just want him to know his daughter and make the effort i know i cannot make him want to but i cant see sending her to him alone when she does not know him and the possibility of him getting mad and doing the things he does when he is mad in front of her or directed toward her scares me. As well as the drug use and partying i know smoking pot is like one of the less scary drugs but none the less it is inhibiting and if he uses while my daughter is around could be dangerous the partying is unacceptable at all in my opinion. Thanks for your answers in advance
