My child went to her bio dads this summer. When she came home she had a laceration on her foot that got no medical attention. I took her to the doctor (dr said it needed stitches but got no medical treatment), who sent me to a foot dr. He pulled out some glass, and may even need to put her under and take her to the or and remove some more glass that is deep in her foot. Is that medical abuse or neglect?
Neglect because he didn't even bother to take her to a doctor or get treated. I'm not sure you could be in trouble for medical abuse if you're not in the medical field but I could also be wrong. He didn't even bother to treat her, that is neglect inside and out. I would sue him if I were you and have him pay for the medical bills. It happened while she was with him and he failed to do anything about it. Probably because he didn't want to pay the money for it. I'd sue him.
For you not to send her to her fathers you have to legally go through the courts, otherwise you would be in contempt of court and you could end up in jail for the night. Go to the domestic relations in your town and tell them what happened, they will decide if your daughter should go back. Make sure you keep it legal otherwise he could use it against you and you could end up eventually losing your daughter.
If it is court ordered that she see him, then you have to send her no matter how much you don't want to. You can be held for contempt of the court order and that's not something you want either. If it is not court ordered that she see him, then don't send her. Also, I would go to court immediately and change it so that you have full custody.
yes you can. My mother did the same thing because my dad kept sending me back with lice. If he wants to take it to court then thats fine because you have proof that he is not a good father to watch your child.
well yes I would say it is defenetly neglect and any neglect is abuse. I recommend not sending her anymore or at least for maybe shorter periods of time. sorry to hear that, that is just ridiculous
well no she doesnt have to send her if it is dangerous for her to be over there.
could I stop sending her because he did that?
