Good morning,

I will keep this short and to the point but desperate for some advice as to where I stand.

I am concerned for my children’s safety and well-being when in the care of their mother. The points being are... she is a drug addict, her partner is s drug dealer, kids always dirty and late for school, parties round house most nights when kids in bed etc etc. I have suffered this as I know deep down she does care but has a problem and I have looked to help but she is in denial. We share contact 40/60 because of my work commitments however.... something happened this weekend but by absolute luck the children (they are 8 and 9) were not there but with me. 2 masked men went to the house because of a drug debt and smashed the down stairs windows and car windows in and threatened to harm my ex and her partner. But for police intervention this would have escalated further.

I have taken the children and said they can no longer stay at the house until I feel it’s is safe to do so and I have the backing of her family. We have joint parental responsibility.

I do not believe it is safe for the children to stay there so what would be my next steps. I would genuinely like full custody.

Thankyou. A very concerned father.
