Customer Question
I am dealing with custody...
I am dealing with custody over my son with my ex wife in the state of South Carolina . During our exchanges she has repeatedly brought up to the different officers claiming that I have a gun, because I have a legal permit but do not carry a firearm with me to these exchanges. The reactions have been different from officer to officer, they have told her to stop doing that someone is going to get hurt. Recently she caused an incident during a custody exchange infront of an officer and while she was being reprimanded by the officer she yelled out he has a gun and I'm afraid, this caused a tense situation between myself and the officer. At this point I am afraid for my life and am scared of getting shot. Is there anything I can do about this, and can the courts continue to make me drop of my child and put my life and my child's life in danger

Good morning. I certainly understand the situation. Is your concern about the location of the drop and that the Officers are involved and her continuing to make claims that you are armed?

My concern is her claims to the officers are going to get me shot, the drop off is done infront of the sheriffs office with an officer present, I have full custody of my child, and she is on supervised visitation
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

Thank you for the additional information. Yes, if her conduct and actions are posing a threat to not only yourself but the child, you can file a motion with the court, to modify the location of the drop off. You would need to show and explain to the Judge what she is doing and propose an alternative location for the drop off, based on what she is doing. You can suggest a 3rd party be involved with the exchange or go to a neutral, public place. The goal is to show she has no faith basis for these claims and it is outrageous and dangerous conduct, to allege you have a gun, time after time, in the presence of the officer.

What good would switching the location that does nothing to make her stop the allegations of me having a weapon to the officers present. The issue is that that needs to stop before something happens, are the courts able to force me to put my life in danger over visitation?
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

When I suggest changing locations, I mean to no longer require an officer to be there, so it could be at another public location, just without an officer needing to be present. Notwithstanding, you can 100% address the issue with her conduct and speak with the Judge about her to cease the allegations, when she knows they are not true and when your child is present.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
