We don't get along anymore and we fight all the time over her son, I don't want to give him back
Can you blame her? You did one thing to help her out. She did everything a responsible citizen who makes a mistake should do to atone for it and you REFUSE to return her child to her. I wouldn't get along with you either. How sad that you can't put your own child and grandson's needs before your own.
By your own admission she is fit to be his parent and you REFUSE to return him. Even in foster care the goal is reunification. Clearly you haven't done what YOU should do morally and ethically to reunite this boy with his mother. Shame on you.
she tells me she is going to take me back to court, but has never mentioned anything about her brother's criminal record being a factor as to why she is going back to court
Perhaps it is because her heart is breaking to be with her son? You seriously can't believe you don't know why she is taking you back to court.
I am a litagation paralegal and an officer of the court. Is that going to be something that will get me in serious trouble with the judge, that I should have known better then to agree to not have a felon living in my home when i knew full well he was living with me?
You think? How odd that you took your grandson believing you were a better parent and now you admit his own mother is the fit parent and you have worse decision making capability than she ever did.
Do the right thing and return him to his mother. A drug addicted convicted felon is NO ONE to raise a child around when his mother and loving step father are ready to raise him in a home without your son's issues.
