Suspicions of Drug Use / Drug Dealing, What to do?
My friend is in a tough situation. She has a 1 year old daughter with a man that she is no longer with. The man is engaged to another woman and they currently live together. Due to the woman's mental state and some other things going on in the house, my friend does not feel comfortable with her daughter being there. My friend and her ex do not have any sort of legal custody agreement, he just gets the daughter on the days my friend is at work and vice versa. She is in the very beginning processes of trying to get full custody, she just spoke with a lawyer the other day and is going to go from there, so not much has been done as of yet. One of the things she mentioned to the lawyer is that her ex's fiancee may be selling drugs out of their home (marijuana specifically). The lawyer said that she needs proof and she doesn't know how to go about getting it. The reason she thinks she is selling is because the fiancee is unemployed, and a couple of people that the fiancee used to live with said that she says she sells drugs. This woman is a known pathological liar so it may not be true, but it wouldn't be surprising because of the kind of person she is. What is the best way to go about getting proof? Should my friend just call the police and tell them what she has heard? She's worried that if shes wrong and she is not selling drugs that it will make her look bad during the custody battle. Thank you for your time.
