How could I stop my daughter’s father from getting visitation rights?

He is currently in rehab and hasn’t seen her for almost a year. He has also tried to keep me from getting her when I let him see her. He has been in and out of a mental institution for several years. Her father has a lot of mental problems. He has been in the hospital 3 or 4 times for trying to kill himself. I have had to call the cops on him for throwing himself infront of my car when I was trying to leave him with my daughter. Their are so many more reasons why he shouldnt see her just not enough space to type it all. What should I do?

If you truly believe that your daughter's father would not be a good influence with respect to your daughter where he might be a possible danger to her and do not want him to have visitation rights with her, I suggest that you consult with a family law attorney to see about filing a petition to block all visitation rights of the father.

You will need to get declarations of third parties supporting the petition was well as medical records and possible police reports as exhibits.
