My niece is 3 and her mother
didn't have custody for the first 1.5 years my parents had it temporarily because she was an addict and prostitute. Now that she is 3 she bounces from house to house. She is at my house tales st 3 nights a week and the rest of the week she is supposed to be with her dad, but she isn't because she is with either his mom or his sister in law because he is always busy and I just found out has been getting hooked on zanex again. All the while his father was being investigated for child molestation and his mom recently was too. But now my niece is at his moms house a lot but more at her other aunts. My sister has a man living with her that physically abuses her and does it in front of my niece. Recently he forgot to buckle her car seat so when he turned a corner her whole car seat fell over and when my sister got mad he started to punch her. 1.5 months ago my sister was supposed to pick my niece up and never showed. I got a call 2 hours after the time saying this man had punched her choked her out and stole her money. He has been in out of jail maybe 5 times in the last year. He sells drugs and she is back hooked on Vicodin and zanex. She recently lost her job as a dancer and now is a prostitute on a website called seeking arrangements. Com and that is how she is paying her bills. Ever since she got custody back of my niece she has had cps called on her 5 times and every time cheats the drug tests and she makes sure to tell my niece to lie and gets all the guys stuff out of her house for house visits. She is supposed to start preschool in the fall and she hasn't attempted to find one I have because it's 2 minutes down the street and I have her most the time anyways. I am worried for my niece to see that and go through that, and cps hasn't taken any of this seriously.
JA: OK. The Family Lawyer
