my ex abused me while i was pregnant with our daughter. i left him after she was born. he smokes pot and is on probation for a felony drug charge (got busted with a quarter pound of pot) and is looking to serve time because he failed a drug test while on probation. he pays support and only sees her one weekend a month. he has only held a job for a few months. when he calls she doesnt want to talk to him and she doesnt want to go to his house (shes 3) could i get his rights terminated? i dont know if its the right thing to do. i just want whats best for my daughter

Dont think you can get rights terminated based on what you have said. As for not wanting to go she is only 3 the courts will make her. Indiana usually wont let a persons right be yanked unless someone is willng to adopt.

I wouldn't. You daughter is only 3. Every you kick him out of her life before she has a chance to get to know him herself at a older age. You are gunna be on the recieving end of alot of resentment and distrust. Don't chance the emotions of a child just cause someone smokes. The fact you even considered it for those reasons makes me think your not such a great parent yourself.

I think you need to make sure your daughter is in a safe environment. You said you were abused while pregnant. Only you know the details and extent of that abuse. We need to teach children good morals, respect and kindness, not games, drama and fighting. If you run him down she will defend him over you and run to him to protect him If you help her see his illness and faults in a loving way she will respect you and be aware and much safer. I have been through a lot and can speak from experience, hence, Lucky Girl. It is hard. My prayers are with you.
