Hi, this is my first question/blog, so I am hoping someone out there can advise me. I have been out of work since January and just started back working in June, so I can't afford a lawyer just yet. I've been divorced for 2 years.
There are two issues here: First, the ex had a business that failed during our marriage, which I stupidly financed. I had to file bankrupcy, while he re-opened another business, married the woman he cheated with, and now has surmounted MORE debt and is about to file bankruptcy. He and wife moved into a lakeside rental house in Georgia three-four months ago. He won't disclose his new address to me, because he says that I will tell his debtors where he lives. Oddly enough, the creditors/banks all have my address and phone number and call/send mail to me all of the time in attempts to find him. You wonder, how is this relevant to my son? I don't know where my son is going every other week. The area where my ex lives is comprised of huge communities, heavily poplulated.
Am I legally entitled to know where my son is when my ex-husband has him? My controlling exhusband gets my 8 yr-old son every other week-we have joint custody. Over the past two months, my son has become more and more aprehensive when he is to return to his father's. He broke down crying the night before last saying that his dad drinks "a LOT" and makes my son "go fishing" every day and every night(except when it rains) while my son is there. He says his dad "makes" him ride with him to liquor store, and "daddy drives crazy in his truck and his boat." I am fearful that my ex will have an accident while driving truck or boat while drinking.
When I inquired with law officials and the dept. of family and child services, both tell me that I must have an address/location in order to report him. My ex-husband denies everything. I tried to follow my exhusband, but couldn't get into his gated community. What do I do? I pray a lot.
