I have sole decision making for my 1 year old. her father

I have sole decision making for my 1 year old. her father has visitation wed and thurs from 430 til 600. Due to work changing my hours for an audit on wed my daughter wasn't available for his visitation due to change in who could watch her. (Normally it is my Mother but couldn't do that late) I offered father longer Thursday visitation and he denied it. What can I do to protect myself? I have no choice in audits for work and have to attend as a part of my job. I gave him notice of this on Monday as soon as I got it. In sept I have to go out of town for an internal audit and my daughter will be with family while I am gone. what can I do?

I am per pro and preparing a final settlement on our divorce

hello,I am per pro and preparing a final settlement on our divorce case in CA. Date of separation 7/2014. a domestic violence restraining order was issued, in protection of myself and my now 10 yr old daughter, from my ex spouse.we have progressed, from no visitation, to an unsupervised visitation schedule btw daughter and Dad. Also, in criminal court, former spouse, took a plea of guilty , to vandalism of personal property. Spousal abuse and child endangerment charges were dropped in the criminal court, as part of plea deal . I also have criminal protective order until May 2018 due to this plea.exspouse wants joint legal custody as part of final divorce decree. I do not want joint legal with him. does anyone know, if CA family law code, restricts joint legal or physical custody, when there is criminal protective order in place? the criminal protective order protects me, only, not the child. The DVRO protects both me and the child. But Dad does have some visitation. thanks for your help!

My husband and I are separated and living in the State of

My husband and I are separated and living in the State of Virginia.We have been living apart since Feb. 22, 2015. We have one child. My "ex" is an alcoholic. He allows me to give him a pharmacy bought BAC before driving or caring for our son.My question is this: Is it considered child endangerment or child neglect if I knowingly let the unsupervised visitation occur with my 10 year old and his father, if I have reasonable knowledge that his father is legally drunk (pharmacy BAC) at that time and allow the visitation to occur unsupervised?

We have been separated 10months. We have a longstanding

We have been separated for over 10months. We have a longstanding (none legal) agreement that I (dad) gets the kids every weekend since it suited our schedule. About 2 weeks ago, mom had requested keeping the kids (3 and 5) over the weekend to which I declined with reason that I have already made plans with them in mind. Come fri 05/13/16, Mom sends a message that she's out of town with kids. Sensing this is a ploy to keep the kids, I go over as normal, though about an hour sooner to go get the kids. Upon hearing my arrival Mom (and there were other people in the house/apartment, her mother's house) lock herself and the girls in the kids room, refusing to let the kids come with me. Leaving her mother to haul abuse at me.Our kids are such that they'll call to mommy and/or daddy no matter what. The fact that they weren't making any sound and the fact that their mother could lock them up just so she gets her way, distresses and concerns me. Not to mention the scarring and distress they kids suffered.Do I have any cause to pursue legal action?Thanks

Ex husband is a manipulative, bully, narcissist. Daughter

ex husband is a manipulative, bully, narcissist. Daughter is 15, he has told her since she was 11 that "mommy had an affair", which isn't true, but regardless isn't something that she should have ever been asked to deal with. He is constantly badmouthing me, my BF, my home, how much $$ I make. He complains to her about what I do and do not contribute financially to. I know that child endangerment might not fit, but do I have any legal recourse whatsoever?

I have a 5 year domestic violence restraining order

Hello,I have a 5 year domestic violence restraining order on my ex for my 8 yr.old daughter and I, in Santa Clara County.Wheel two years ago we had a incident at my house where my ex broke in and wouldn't leave. To make a long story short he was arrested. He was arrested for disobeying restraining order, under the influence, and resisting arrest.He some how won the disobeying restraining order. However, Monday May 2 2016 he goes back to court for fighting the under the influence charge.What I'm concerned about is that I received a letter subpoenaing me for May 2. It was sent by the D.A. Stating I am a witness and need to come to court that day.I do not want to testify or even step foot in that court room. The incident wS almost two years ago and My daughter and Zi hVe since moved on. I do not want to bring back such negativeness. What should I do or can I do lawfully?

My son-in-law received a DUI on 12/21/15 and also charged with

My son-in-law received a DUI on 12/21/15 and also charged with child endangerment because he had his 11 year old daughter with him that he picked up from school. It sure was a wake up call for all of us but certainly for him. He has attended all of the courses, counseling and alcohol related courses (AAA). His court appointment was a week ago and his charges were dropped to reckless driving alcohol related. He had a local lawyer. He received his license back so he could go to work. We all thought that was it, but consequently this did not take care of the child endangerment charge. He was put on a "national registry" for child abuse and is now in jeopardy of losing his job. If there is to be another hearing in family court how can they put him on a national registry without a judgement? My question is how can this help his children if he loses his job? He is a state employee and work in a detention center for kids.
