I have been told that my ex is a CI (confidential informant)

This answer was rated:

I have been told that my ex is a CI (confidential informant) do you think the judge will sway towards giving him custody because he works for the police? My children and I are in danger being around him and I would think a judge would see that. Can we ask that the custody hearings be held in another county or in the state of GA vs. NC?
The fact that he is a CI could work against him for custody if you can show this to the court as it would present a danger to the children and thus would not be in the best interests of the children. He is not a police officer or employee, he is a snitch, which does not sway a court to give someone custody, in fact it is a negative factor because of the danger posed to the children if someone comes after him for being an informant. Unfortunately, the custody hearings have to be held in NC if that is where the case was filed and it cannot be moved to GA because GA has no personal jurisdiction in the case. You will have to provide proof that your ex is indeed a CI and you would use this to show that it exposes the children to unnecessary danger should whoever he is informing on come and try to retaliate against him.
