I am step mom, my husbands ex wife has custody of their 8 year old son(Easton) and we have every other weekend and summers. Lately, he has been seeing a psychiatrist because he is acting out at her house ALL the time. He has step siblings that basically pick on him 24/7 and make fun of him and torture him to where he just stays in his room. When he is with us he cries that he has to go back home. Also, we just found out that the school was suppose to call DFCS on his mother
because he has missed so much school and she isn't even employed but has a vehicle. The school said since it was so close to summer they didnt know if that was still going to happen. My question is, can we go through dfcs and try and get custody of him? They have been divorced for four years now. How could we go about that? I know we were granted temporary custody in 2013 because she was arrested for drug charges and spent 3 months in jail and was still given custody when she got out. Is there anything we can do?
JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?
Customer: GA and what car?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: We were going to get his school records this week showing his absences and her arrest record but i dont know if that will help. I dont know if we should try and get records from his psychiatrist or where to even begin.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: There was a verbal agreement between his mother and father that he would be paying her 360 a month in child support
because he switched jobs and was making less money and now she is upset that he wants custody and is now suing him for around 3000 in back child support but she aslo claimed him on taxes when it wasnt her year and we were told we could sue her for that child tax credit so they are still waiting to go to court for that.
