This week’s dilemma comes directly from the Creole in DC blog:
You go through a VERY difficult breakup with the father of your two children.
During the breakup he once told you that he would kill you AND your babies.
You have stayed away from him since then and kept your children away from him.
It’s 6 months later and you still haven’t filed for child support because you just don’t want to anger him and you have been struggling financially.
He has apologized and has said that both of you said things you’d never do during the breakup and that you know he’d NEVER do something to his children.
What do you do?
What would you do? Do you let him see the children, or do you fight his access claims in the courts?
