Greetings. First, I am sorry that this issue has brought you so many sleepless nights. Your anxiety is understood.
First, you may want to speak with your daughter about the living situation and visitation to determine her desires. Next, you may want to offer him a reduction (a small reduction)in child support to avoid the costs of litigation.
Finally, if that fails, I suggest that you find witnesses to your ex’s drug and alcohol use/abuse other than your children, keep a calendar of events and visitation, record your calls with your ex, and keep all of your communications confined to positive written communications when possible. Let us know if we can help!
