JustAnswers.com 2016-02-01 1518 MonI am reading out state law and there is one part I cant tell if they are talking about the child or the adult. This statute if defining definitions. It is a paragraph for Child Protective Services. Are they talking about if an adult has a mental condition that will limit the child's welfare or are they talking about having a child that has a "Mental Disorder" that affects the childs welfare?(23) "Mental disorder" means a serious emotional and mental disturbance that severely limits a minor's development and welfare over a significant period of time.

I Have A Question regarding my child welfare. My

I Have A Question regarding my child welfare. My ex-girlfriend is the custodial parent of my 11 year old daughter. At the time of child support, we were not living together. But I soon moved in to help with the raising of my Daughter. Since my ex-Girlfriend lost her house due to forclosure they have been living in a one bedroom apt. My ex-girlfriend has a severe drinking addition. My daughter has been spending more time with me, which is great. My main problem is that my daughter has been coming over saying she is starving, no breaksfast before school. She eats a discounted meal at school at lunch, then nothing until she comes over to my house around 7:30-8:00. What can I due about this child negelect?? I am very concerned about my childs welfare.Thanks,**********@******.***

My youngest daughter is a narcissist, a thief, a

My youngest daughter is a narcissist, a thief, a pathological liar, and is selling prescription drugs. She is separated from her husband, and they have 2 sons. I am very concerned about the older grandson as he is the scapegoat, the younger son is the golden child. The young son she had with the man she is separated from, the older is from a bad relationship. I visit them frequently and last time I stayed with the father as he had the boys, we have been communicating very regularly until last week, now I am not allowed FaceTime with the boys and he cuts the phone conversations short and doesn't return my text, very odd behavior. My daughter doesn't communicate at all since New Years when she came here and robbed me. I am afraid they got back together and the oldest grandson is living in hell. I live in Ga, they live in NC. I would like to persue guardianship of the oldest, he very much enjoys being here with me and has never wanted to go home when he visits. I have contacted the sheriffs dept. but they don't seem to be doing anything. My daughter has 2 small dogs that piss on the floor everywhere they go, her house takes your breath away when you walk in, I can't believe that is a healthy environment for kids, or anyone for that matter.
