So here is the short of it, I need to pay for a parental evaluator that is ordered by the court. It is my last chance to protect my son from further abuse in the care of his father.

Here is the long of it, My ex husband still has temporary custody after 8 long years. While my son David (8yr old) was with him, David was molested by his 14 yr old step brother. I, of course, called DCF and the cops and did everything I was supposed to including immediately getting my son into counseling. DCF said because the abuser was over the age of 12, that it was a police matter. The police took their time with this. The teenager admitted what had been done and even described more than what my son had admitted to me. These incidents and reports happened back in June and July of 2013, Finally this Febuary the teenager was convicted, of a lesser charge of felony battery. He is on probation and has to go to counseling. The problem is that even while we were waiting on him to be convicted, David's father still continued to allow our son to be around his abuser. David's father has inhibited David's counseling, and sees no reason the boys cant be around each other. They live in separate houses. David's father has tried to stop me from seeing or talking to my son. He has denied visitation, he has threatened to kill me.

Now a little additional information, My ex's lawyer is the mayor of Port St Joe, where our case is held. My ex's stepfather was born and raised in this town, and has alot of pull. My ex's girlfriend's mother ( and the legal guardian of the teenager who abused my son) works for the Gulf County Sheriff. Gulf County Sheriff department is the department that has handled these cases. I have filed multiple contempt charges on my ex, as well as filing for an injunction. ALL have been denied. I had to go down to the State Attorneys Office and fight with them to have a no contact order put in place between my son and his abuser. They hadn't put one in because my son's father had requested for there to not be one.

I have fought all I can fight, I have no attorney, and am not asking for one but the court has ordered us to a parental evaluator. The cheapest one on the list is going to charge each of us about $1500. She will take payments. For those of you who dont know what a parental evaluator is; she is a highly trained counselor who has seen and been through plenty of these cases. She will meet and talk to each of us with and without David. She will do home visits. She will contact counselors and DCF workers, and the school. She will sort through all the information and give us each psychological tests. She will then give her reccomendation to the court. This same counselor has worked in a friends of mine case, and i was able to read her report, she was able to see through everything. He report really pointed out the good and bad with both parents and some of it wasnt pretty, but she was able to get to the bottom of it. I dont have a choice about paying for this Parental Evaluator. My only other choice is to give my ex what he wants and to give up my son, I can guarantee you, that will not happen. I will continue fighting until my dying breath. 

My son is not only in danger of being sexually molested again, there are alot of other circumstances. My sons grades are horrible, he has been acting out. He lives in a three bedroom house with 7 other people, His father moves constantly. His father refuses to let me talk to him when he is there. His father refuses to give me any information about his schooling, counseling or health. David begs to come live with me. He claims he is scared of his dad and that they never pay him any attention. This parental evaluator is my last hope. Please help me protect my child and get him the safety, security, love and attention that he needs.
