My friend Jerry called today to tell me how he could determine the legal custody of Boy-X (age 10) in Texas. The conversation went like this:

You guys tell you think the kids in this story might be vulnerable to CSA???

Rob: Why is his custody in question?
Jer: Cuz he's might come up here to Massachusetts (MA)...he's getting into too much trouble in TX.
Rob: And his parents are where?
Jer: No one knows where his father is...he was one of those one-night things...his mother is here in MA but she has nothing to do with Boy-X.
Rob: Has the mother seen this kid?
Jer: Probably not since he was a baby, then he was passed-off to Frank.
Rob: Who's Frank?
Jer: My sister's old boyfriend who moved to Texas with my sister.
Rob: How the fk did Frank get Boy-X???
Jer: He lived with Boy-X's mother for a while and she dumped Boy-X with him.
Rob: So your sister and Frank have had Boy-X living with them in TX?
Jer: and on.
Rob: Where's your sister?
Jer: I dont one's seen her for a couple of years. Maybe she's in Boston...she's a crack whore.
Rob: So Frank called you, looking for you to take Boy-X???
Jer: No. My wife's brother Jim called us from TX.
Rob: HUH???
Jer: Jim (who also lived with my sister for a while) got off-and-on custody of Boy-X.
Rob: What the fuck is that degenerate Jim doing with Boy-x?
Jer: Its a long story, but he was much better off with me!
Rob: But Jim is a coke-head, loser scumbag who refuses to work!!
Jer: Yeah...but trust me...he's better off with Jimmy.
Rob: OK...So Frank is all for sending Boy-X to you in MA?
Jer: Yeah...he really doesn't give a shit...If I send a plane ticket, he'll send Boy-X...and maybe Boy-X's little brother.
Rob: There's a little brother????
Jer: Yeah....Same mother...different father.
Rob: need a Family Law Attorney. Boy-X and his little brother need Therapy RIGHT AWAY. And probably should get them up the MA right away....DO NOT leave little brother behind in TX.
