Scared for my son
Concerned father

My son lives with his mother. For the past couple years he has been complaning of abuse that happens in his home at the hands of his mother. He says that se has punched him, kicked him and choked him on many occasions. Child protective services(CPS) have been to her home three times in the last three years and they never question the children away from their mother. The boys are scared because they get beat even worse after the police leave. I have hired an attorney in the past with no prevail. My son is now old enough to speak his mind to the judge and wishes to do so. Does anyone know how I might him his day in court?

I have also had the same thing but with my ex-husband. My daughter is 3. Her father hasn't seen her in a year. When she was 2 she came home with bruises on her body and was complaining that her privates hurt. She said her dad did it. CPS was called 3 times but they won't do a single thing about it unless it was witnessed. The state of Michigan sucks when it comes to protecting your children.
I'm just glad that he doesn't want anything to do with her anymore.
I'm sorry you have to deal with this. I hope your son will be able to speak to a judge. If your going through court for child support or custody, you could set something up with the mediator to speak with your son first. Or when your son comes to your place and says that his mom has been hitting him you could just call the police and file a report. Keep doing that until something is done for good!!
Good luck!!
