Re: Child custody

Do you have visitation? The mother's child is able to carry on a life as long as the child is properly cared for. If the mother is juggling school/work & providing proper care for your child,there is no law that restricts her activities because you deem them unnecessary.

However, if the child is being neglected, then you need to report that to the proper authorities.
