Customer Question

I have concerns about my daughter seeing her dad. He is a weed addict, is very verbally aggressive and has a history of domestic violence in a previous relationship. He smokes weed while my daughter is in his care or asks his mum to watch her while he stays out late smoking weed with his friends. He has lost his temper with his older children in front of my daughter. Can I stop my daughter from seeing him?

I feel that the way he is, is having an affect on her as she is being monitored by an educational psychologist at school, as the teachers had concerns about her behavior and the way she can be emotionally

How often does he see her

D you trust his mother to keep her safe

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He sees her every other weekend and half the holidays, in a previous relationship her father had, his mother was not able to stop him from holding a knife to the mother of his older children's throat, I only recently found this information out, so on hearing that, no I don't feel that his mum can protect my daughter
