I am a single mother with a 2 year and 5 month old daughter. When daughter was 8 1/2 months old never lived with father, court ordered 1 overnight (24 hour period) every other week, plus 3 daytime visits of 4 hours per week. When my daughter was 14 months old, the court gave him 6 to 7 overnights with additional weekly 4 hour visits. These overnights are a 24 hour period.
Then when she turned 26 months, he has almost 50% time. It is stressful to see her trying to cope. I am in the state of California, they are pro father, if anybody tells you otherwise, they are dreaming. If the father wants, he will get the time. How do attorneys argue on behalf of the mother for a very young child? I can't seem to find any attorneys that will help moms in that area. I have read all the developmental pro father stuff. Where are the pro-moms that believe a child shouldn't be torn away from its mother just because the father has rights? What about how the child is feeling and distress the child may be subjected to?
Any thoughts? Please don't tell me that the father has a right....I agree, the child should see the father but on such an aggressive schedule when the child is so young???
