I am a mother of four, two of them diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, which is an Autism Spectrum Disorder. After feuding with my spouse about everything related to the children’s needs, I went to court to get legal custody of the children. Instead, the court awarded custody to my husband and ordered me out from the home, for the “safety of the children”. At the same time, I was awarded visitations twice a week plus one day overnight, all unsupervised.
The allegations? “mental health issues” “excessively dragging the children around town for unnecessary therapies, confusing and upsetting the children. Temporarily, for the safety of the children, the mother should be excluded from the marital residence”.
If your life was changed by Autism in the family, if your custody battle has gone wrong with accusations of Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy and other nonsense, please join this blog and share your views.
