This just happened today & I am still stunned & so shaken that this could happen that a judge could let a 4 year old girl to live in that kind of environment given the extremely high incidence of child abuse & sexual abuse in this nation. I was given standard visitation. 45 days in the summer assorted holidays etc. I will go to the court & purchase a copy of the steno notes of the court proceedings.
All of the witnesses I brought foward & all family & friends are amazed that any court would decide this. The judge awarded I pay ALL community debt. to the tune of around $60,000.& her legal fees. The mom asked for $120.00 child support a month the judge gave her $350.00. Plus all medical. I am a good father and a good husband I do not do drugs I do not drink except socially I am a peaceful man. Our home is filled with all the love and care a child could ever want or need. I work almost everynight but don't make alot of money & my mother keeps the baby when I am at work. One of us is with every hour of every day when she is not at school. I had her in tap dance & ballet & cheerleading , she went to a private church pre school. I could offer her so much more than she would get with her mother. When I talk to her on the phone she sounds so sad & asks when she can come home . Now I don't know what to tell her.
I do not know what you mean by the ratio decidendi I am not sure could you elaborate. I really do not know what I should do.
