I am a 19 year old father of a 5 month old little girl (Elizabeth) and haven't seen her in 2 weeks because her mother and i are fighting and now she refuses to let me see my daughter. There are so many reasons I should get sole custody but i know how hard it is for a father to do so. She is using and keeping drugs in the house with the baby, has guys and girls (she is bi)coming and going, hardly ever takes care of her on her own, and never lets me see her. she is doing everything she can to keep my name off of the birth certificate. she is about to move to TX just to keep me away from Elizabeth. she called just the other day saying that my daughter will never know me as long as she has anything to do with it and will be calling one of the guys she cheated on me with a few times while we were engaged daddy. i just don't want my daughter to grow up with a druggy whore of a mother and never know me. and here are a few things you should know about me that could possibly be held against me.
-when i was 15 i was put in brentwood (mental institution). i was homicidal and suicidal, but it was a side-effect from some medication i was on.
-brentwood again just recently but i put myself in because i was having suicidal thoughts because Candice was just threatening me all the time with my daughter and i was also in the marines and about to be shipped to iraq...just a stressful time in my life
-last used drugs (weed) about 2 months ago but other than that quit when elizabeth was born.
-lives in 3 bedroom trailor with 5 other people
and this is what i got against her, i just dont know what could actually be used in court in my favor
-uses drugs (ecstacy, weed, pain pills)
-smokes in house around elizabeth
-refuses to let me see elizabeth
-keyed my car and put roaches in it incase police ever checked it out to get me in trouble
-ALWAYS leaves elizabeth with her family who is usually high on something
-lives in 2 bedroom apartment with 6 people (including her and child)
-cheated on me while i was at bootcamp and SOI with 2 diffirent people just days after we get engaged and this is after she KNOWS she is pregnant with my child
i hope you all understand why i want custody of my daughter by now, thats why im trying to put as much info on here as i can come up with right now.
and i guess thats about it. i'm sorry this was such a long post but i would REALLY appreciate any helpful feedback. THANX!!!
