    do you think ill get custody/placement

    Basically I had a child with a man that I was never really to fond of story short we were drunk n slept together n he wasn't around the whole pregnancy. After I had the baby a few months later he started coming around, I let him take her n be a part of her life. We then went to court and I agreed via mediation to let him have 50/50 custody. I didn't know him that well and from what I could tell thought he was a good guy. I had no problem with wanting him to be in her life. Now she is turning 3 in March. I have had these past few years to get to know him more and learned much about him that I don't care to have my daughter around. In 2008 he has a drug charge and a disorderly conduct charge, he hasn't had a job the whole time I've known him up until the last few months he finally got one, he has no car or license and lives in a very disgusting apartment. I have a police report from an officer commenting how gross the apartment is , also stated that he smelled of marijuana. I initially called the officer because I walked into the apartment and seen tom smoking a joint with our daughter on his lap. I then took her to the hospital where she was tested for drugs just to be safe. The doctor witnessed my daughter was practically starved. He gave her crackers and juice and witnessed her hunger. I have now learned that toms' hanging around a crowd who was just busted for meth use and trafficking. One guy involved int he drug bust was actually toms's girlfriends brother. tom lives with his girlfriend and I have indeed seen her brother there many times that I've been over there picking up my daughter. Now, thomas was not involved in this drug bust however it is still people and the environment that my daughter is around. I have reported all of this to human services numerous times as there are other things that factor in but I was trying to keep this somewhat short. Please let me know do you think I have a chance at winning full custody if I go back to court? Thanks!

    If childrens services does not have a problem with it, the court likely will not. Most of what you said is hearsay. You have 15 more years left to pay for your choices and learn to coparent.
