Irving, TX asked in Child Custody and Child Support for Louisiana

Q: My daughter is 3, child support order arranged, mother is custodial parent. Child has resided with mom since born.

I pay child support, and have always made an effort to see my daughter. The mother, after three years just started letting me take my child do things only one time a month though, and would tell me to go sit at my child’s grandmaws house to see my child because she knows I will not do that, my reasoning it the grandmaw has threatened me countless amounts of times, tried to hit me, and has a criminal record from beating a man in a public parking lot. I couldn’t bring my self to go around her because I was scared she would hit me or hurt me and I don’t want my child to see that. When my child’s mother moved out and got her own place I would willingly go sit and visit, even tho there’s no order for supervised visitation. The mother constantly threatens me to take my child out my life.I want to take her to court for 7 and 7 joint custody what are my chances of getting this? I have messages and proof that I have always made an effort and she said I can’t have her because of that reason.

A: I don't know how many years your time with your child has been dictated by the mother. Hire a custody attorney to get guaranteed time with your child. Create a text or email record of regularly requesting more time.
