Okay I am writing on my husband’s behalf. He and a female have a kid in common. My husband put in a visitation
order in with the courts in 2012, when the child was 1 going on 2 yrs old. Since then the mother
has ran the visitation plan. It states that she is to meet him at the public library every other Saturday to drop off his child and meet there to pick her up at 5pm Sunday. There has been multiple times she has not showed up and my husband has not done anything with the courts, due to taking her in on one contempt and the courts did not listen to him they just took the mothers word for it. So he thinks she will always get her way in court so why even try. The mother never has a job, she uses drugs, Herion, pops pills, sells food stamps for money for drugs and her child goes hungry. This has been the whole time the 5yr old has been born. DCF has been called on the Mother has to be 15 times and every time she is manipulates them into believing she is a wonderful mother and passes drug test.
No Fast Forward to now. My husband has been denied visitation by the mother going against the court ordered plan sine June, he has not seen his child and the mother will not communicate with my husband.
My husband put an contempt on the mother a few weeks ago and they granted him make up time. The papers states that the mother must strictly comply with the order and also give my husband every weekend visits starting from Oct 4th until March. Up until now 3 weekends later after the order been in, she has not still let him have the child nor has replied to any of his attempts to get the child.
We got phone call last night about what my husband’s child is going through.
The caller stated that my husband needed to get custody of his child bc of the conditions his child is in.
It is said that the mother and her boyfriend get prescription drugs, which is about 200 pills, and sell them in order to buy Roxies and Herion.
They get $900.00 in food stamps and sell them for cash and use the money for drugs, and the kids (my husbands child and the boyfriends 2 kids) go hungry. The kids complain about being hungry.
That the both are high on drugs, sleep all day, leaving the kids to defend on themselves. Ages ranging from 5-10yrs old.
The kids never get attended to as in never take baths or clean themselves, hair never fixed.
Company in the house they live in has found needles lying around.
The kids have missed about 14days of school since school started August 10th.
The people who rented the house have moved out and has the water turned off and they are being squatters refusing to leave. The kids have lived there for weeks without water.
The kids are around alcoholism
, drugs, and indecency.
The female and the boyfriend says that DCF visit and get called so much that they keep the kids urine in a crock pot warm for when DCF ppl just show up they will pass the drug test.
What can my husband do with out proof of this?
The ppl who always come out of no where with telling me I need to get custody of my child bc all this info they give me, but when I ask will they help me and tell the courts they back out bc they say they are snitching.
We live in Florida and it is hard to just walk into court and say I want custody of my child bc they will want something more.
Is there something a non-custodial parent
can file for emergency custody to get his child out those living conditions asap?
Please help she would be in better hands with us. We both work for the school board; we take care of our children.
We need in-depth help bc this child needs a better chance of life then what she is getting with her mother.
Before finding our all this my husband went to the court house and filed another contempt on Monday, for the mother still taking his ordered make up weekends. We are still awaiting a date for that now.
And in addition to what he can do asap to get his daughter out of the conditions asap, what can be done without proof to keep her?
