howdy all I hope you're doing good on this Friday night!
Short of talking to a lawyer I'm wondering if anyone could shed some light on this for me.
My ex has dealt drugs in the past (prior to us being together) and part of the reason we separated was his daily marijuana use (and harder drugs on a regular basis).
He has been living away the same city as us for about four months, he's back in a week and I have a very strong suspicion he is dealing/using again. I wouldn't put it past him to do a deal with our son in his presence.
I do not trust him in the slightest and cannot even entertain the idea of him having our son since he is so untrustworthy - he also only wants to see our son when it is convenient for him - I will not put my two year old's life at risk!
The only trouble is I have no ACTUAL proof he is doing this, just a hunch (for someone who has never been able to pay bills/save any money he suddenly has A LOT of new toys and is throwing cash around like it's going out of fashion.
I'm wondering if anyone has been here before - we have an unofficial agreement where I have 100% custody of our son - so can I legally keep him away? what are the repercussions for me?
At the end of the day I will not risk my sons well being to keep the peace with him anymore. I know there will be arguments, but I'll be damned if I'm letting a potential drug dealer anywhere near my kid.
Any advice on how to handle this?
I have previously considered getting an intervention order against him but I don't want to go there but I don't know how else to keep him away from us.
