Ex-wife is meth addict advice to get custody of child
My boyfriend's ex-wife is using meth but we have no hard evidence to use against her. She was using meth while my boyfriend was still married to her and her children from a previous marriage got fed up with her and moved in with their dad full-time. Her first husband requested a drug test and she used some sort of shampoo to mask the drug use and the test came out negative. So she has worked the system in the past and he's afraid if he goes the accusation route and she may be the test again and then she will tries retaliate.
It is a super long story and I'm afraid to post all the details here, but we have talked to CPS, Welfare, etc. and because there is no hard evidence they will not do anything. His ex appears to be getting deeper and deeper in her addiction and is doing very bizarre things and the child says the mom is either up all night or sleeping all day and the child is being ignored and feels invisible. For whatever reason though when my boyfriend has asked if the child is okay and wants to live with him the child says it's fine. The child seems to be fiercely loyal to the mother.
The child is on an emotional rollercoaster during the visits with my boyfriend. Up one minute down the next, crying at the next minute at the drop of a hat. It appears and the child is young so who knows for sure.
My boyfriend is currently unemployed and doesn't have the money for a high priced lawyer or private investigator either.
Does anyone have any advice?
