My question involves a child custody case from the State of: CA
The current standing order says I get my daughter friday at 6pm thru sunday at 6pm. over 3 months ago the mother gets into a domestic dispute with her father (same home) and leaves the house. She does not return. Once she has left, my daughters grandmother and I co-parent in order for my daughter to continue spending time with her family. I'm told that she is in rehab during the time that she is gone. I establish school day routines and the whole nine yards while still allowing her to visit her grandmas a few days out of the week. During her mothers 3 month absence she visits my daughter (while she was with grandma) a total of 3 times and calls her once or twice (at grandmas). Also during this time s the avoids being served all costs and I can't afford attorneys or private investigators and her family won't give me any means of reaching her. now, as of 2 days ago her mother allows her back in the home. To my knowledge, the time spent away was spent doing meth. durning one of her visits the mother uses her sisters phone to contact and harass me in a call. I hang up and switch to texting where she admits to drug abuse but claims to have recovered. I have not been shown any proof of her completing any drug program. I'm worried that another dispute in front of my daughter will take place and that her mother will still be abusing drugs while my daughter is in her care, not to mention the many safety issues involved with a drug addict caring for a child. The mother seems to think that now that she is back in the home, I must abide by the standing orders and go back to only weekends.
Can I keep my daughter from her mother do to her admitting to drug addicting but not giving me proof of sobriety?
Is this grounds for ex parte orders?
Do I involve CPS?
Not sure what to do, any help would be more than amazing.
