I am concerned for my childs safety: Advice?

My child is 11 months old, just finished court for child visitation/support order between child’s father and I. Baby goes on visitation with his dad 3x a week, 2 overnights a month. I recently found out that a family member in that household is in and out of detox for heroin and may be using heroin in the household that my son goes to for visitation. Is there anything the courts will do for this? Can I request emergency custody/supervised visitations??? I am concerned about my childs safety and being around that. (I am seeking social media opinions/thoughts while awaiting attorneys call back so please don’t be so quick to judge)

Okay so is this person in the house when your son is there? Talk to dad about it, Express your concerns if he is a decent dad he will ensure there is no paraphernalia there and that person isn’t there when your son it. Dad shouldn’t miss out because of someone else’s actions as long as he is keeping your child safe. Xxx

You better tell the police, cps and anyone else who’ll listen

Worried about your child’s safety so instead of aggressively contacting the courts…for, ya know, your kids well being…you post to facebook…? Jesus christ what happened to mama’s being tigers and protecting their babies? When did facebook become the go to instead of marching to the courts for an emergency injection? A simple Google search and out the door you go. I mean for fucks sake.

Yes take it back to court

You don’t have to play nice. This is your child’s life. This needs to be investigated for your child’s safety. Nice or life ?

Sorry you have no choice but trust that dad will protect the child until something happens ! Maybe express your concerns to the father ! I’ve been married and divorced twice with kids ! You need to work with the other parent

You can have it court ordered that the person who is doing it can not be there while your child is and if your childs dad is a good dad he will make sure that person is not there
If he’s not willing to do that then you need to involve cps and the cops and everything else
But i would try to talk to him first and go from there
Dont want to make things messy if they dont have to be

The court cannot and will. Not do anything without proof. If you decide to go to cps, remember both households will be assessed. Good Luck.

I feel like it was probably ok with u when y’all were together that the person was over there on heroin & now that y’all are broken up ur finding any reason to keep the child away. But, yes, u should get definite proof that the person is using heroin inside the home bring it up in court.

Go back to court ASAP, call authorities and anyone you can get to help. As the mom, your most important job is the safety of your baby…you can’t depend on anyone else for that. If dad was truly concerned for the child’s wellbeing…NONE of that would be going on in his home!!!

You need facts to present though. Hear say won’t work. Then after you get that absolutely go back to court. Good luck.

If I were you I’d file a emergency custody order and go back to court to express your concerns maybe there’s a alternative route he can maybe stay somewhere else with the baby when it’s his over night like with his mom or a friend so he can still see the baby and have his bonding time but if that’s going on in the house I would request a different solution supervision or stay somewhere else or dad move out to a different place or kick said family members out something but at same time still allow dad to be dad that’s important to
