My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Mi
6 weeks after my son was born his father left, and we ended our relationship. The apartment we shared has a lease in his name, he called the landlord and had us asked to leave. He never moved back in. I have since been back to retrieve the rest of my things and saw that it was empty. The thing is, that the house he is choosing to stay in is unsafe for our now 13 week old son. He has told me to contact him in case of an emergency at the landline number of the unsafe home. He is still paying rent for the empty apartment, I'm assuming to maintain the address, so the other place he is actually is irrelevent for overnight visits and parenting time. Since, when I confront he tells me I'm lying, I can't prove it, he's still paying rent so it doesn't matter, or I didn't see what I thought I saw. I know for a fact he will say anything to try and gain ground for custody. Before this fiasco, he called CPS with complete lies, they investigated, found absolutely nothing to support his claims and never opened a case (they also know he tried to use CPS to gain ground for custody-whole different issue).
Does anyone have experience dealing with this situation? Or a similar one? What can I do to prove he's not physically living there? The home he is staying in is not clean and there are guns literally scattered throughout the home... I do not feel it is safe or appropriate to be there (and he's lying for a reason obviously).

There has not been an order for parenting time/visitation yet. His lawyer is filing the paperwork and using an address that is incorrect.
