“To make matters worse, my fear for the children’s safety was amplified due to the fact that petitioner had fired the children’s nanny, who had been in the children’s lives since 2010 and I do not want petitioner using drugs and drinking around the children, especially without anyone else present to care for the children,” the statement continued.
