I have lurked this forum for a while now, and I appreciate grasping all of the board members views and information they have provided. I'm currently pursuing full or primary custody of my daughter of 8 months in the state of Indiana. My daughter was born in Sept 2011, me and mother somewhat lived together(off and on) and after 2 weeks of my daughter being born, the mother kicked me out. Come to find out the reason she kicked me out was because the father of her second child(age 5) got out of 2 year prison term for robbery and stolen property (he has served 2 different terms in prison). After finding out I did go berserk, but I was really worried about spending time with my daughter, but she denied me time in October and November to spend time with my daughter because the convicted felon was staying between her house and his parents house an hour away. She refused to even let me see her November, saying she had all the custodial power to grant me < parenting time > even though we signed a parental affidavit of joint legal custody. Being infuriated with the lack of parenting time with my daughter in November, I accepted a job offer in Washington D.C. that offered me twice what I was being paid in Indiana to help me pursue full custody of my daughter. I was able to see my daughter around Christmas-New Year time as she needed help providing presents for our daughter and her 2 other daughters(she's a user and she's unemployed). I hired a lawyer in December and have been pursuing custody of my daughter ever since, the court process works so slow as of just now in May I am having my first hearing for emergency custody order for my daughter. In May( just couple days ago), I signed a temporary agreement that allows me 4 nights/3 days a month till September in Indianapolis. Im sick to my stomach about signing the agreement for a couple reasons: I wanted to have her at least month this summer to bring my daughter to DC but was told by my lawyer the court wouldn't allow it, so she didn't pursue it; Im paying child support, Im not mad about paying the support its just that I heard the court rarely give the non-custodial custody once there paying support; and my daughter's mother called the cops on me the day we had signed the agreement when I was to have interrupted < parenting time > with my daughter.
After giving a that long backstory, my questions are; how likely is to get custody of daughter of 8 months out of state given that the mother receives unemployment, lets newly released convicted felon live/around my daughter, was driving for 5 months on suspended license with daughter, has 2 other children by different men, lives in the ghetto, and I have audio and text messaging proof of parental alienation against me?
