He is fighting me for parenting time but he has no where to live, he is lying about his living situation, as well as being unemployed he can’t even afford to partially take care of him. He is mentally unstable as well . We have a court hearing Wednesday and I want to cease parenting in full how should I go about that? He is untrustworthy and unreliable
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?

I am very sorry to hear of this issue. Since you already have a hearing scheduled for this week, at the hearing you will want to tell the judge and show any evidence of the facts above that the father is not committed, does not have a place to live, etc. In custody situations, the judge will look at what is in the best interests of the child. This includes stability in income, housing, lack of issues such as drugs, alcohol, and violence. You can also make your request for the father to not have any parenting time or supervised parenting time due to these issues. If you have any evidence that would also be very helpful to use at the hearing or any witnesses to call to testify on your behalf.

If at anytime you need an attorney to assist you, you can find a local attorney by contacting your local bar association and asking for a referral to one. You can also contact your local legal aid society as they offer free and low cost services in these types of cases. Another good resource is to contact your local law schools as they often have clinics with attorneys that will assist in these types of cases. Again, I am sorry to hear of this issue. If you have any follow up questions, I will be very happy to assist you.
