I am 33 yrs old. Married for almost 5 years, live in ND.
I was never married to my ex, we share one daughter together. Our daughter is 11 years old. I have < parenting time > every other weekend and the whole summe. The ex moved out of town 30 miles away after her first divorce 3 years ago, remarried immediately after the divorce was final and is now in the process of being divorced again. Second husband is moving out this weekend according to my 11 year old daughter. She has 2 other children with the previous divorcee', one from me, one from another relationship before. All the children live together. Four kids altogether.
I am really concerned about the stability of the home, who is watching them while she works, ect. I get no answers, and often find out I have been lied too. Everything seems to be going down hill on her side of things. She quit a reputable job 2 years ago because of the commute, and is now working at a bar till close. My daughters grades are average, slightly below.
I tried gaining custody after her first divorce, but the judge found that there was no Prima Facie case present. We then stipulated out of court to the current < parenting time > schedule I listed above. This cost me about $5500.
I do not have a lot of money, but I feel like I should try again. I just care for our daughters well being and the environment she is in. I was wondering about your opinions if you believe I have an actual chance at having a real shot of gaining custody this time.
Thanks for listening.
