my girlfiend split up with me on new years day, she however did not leave the family home, she has lived her life drinking heavy and coming in whatever time she pleases for 6months now, i threw her out last night as i can take no more, the stress of it all has affected my job, i have had to take time off due to stress and on numerous occasions to mind my son and take him to school as her drinking and behaviour towards me has gone to far, can i apply for full custody of my son and how do i go about it she has used him in the past as a weapon against me.
the property and all bills are solely in my name, my son is 8 years old.
we both live in the same house, my (ex)partner was taking him to school in the morning as she works evenings and go's to the pub straight from work, i work early so pick him up from school, and provide him with tea and sort his bedtime routine. my company has been quite supportive with the situation and are prepared to work around me if need be.
no she thought that she was going to continue to live here having a separate life doing exactly what she pleases, with me still paying the mortgage and bills our sons welfare has never really been discussed and in one of the many arguments she even stated she would get him taken into care so she could be free. the situation for me has gone to far sheput me in limbo where we can neither go back to our old lives or move forward to separate new ones. my priority at the moment is to ensure my son has a stable home life, i believe that if she took him with her the way her drinking and socialising has gone his welfare would be at risk.
I have served her with a 30day notice as you advised along with a copy of the pre mortgage loan agreement she signed stating she has no claim on the property. I will try to sort the family mediation out ASAP as my son's welfare is important to me thank you for your advice I hope I am doing things correctly
