Jessica says she and her on-and-off partner, Ian, have been fighting to regain custody of their two children from Child Protective Services for over two years. Jessica says CPS instructed her to keep their daughter away from Ian, who is accused of injuring his son from another relationship. She says she refused the order because she felt it wasn’t fair to their little girl. Jessica admits they have a volatile relationship.

“CPS does know about my anger,” says Ian, who adamantly denies harming his son. He admits to being physically aggressive with Jessica in the past. Still, both he and Jessica insist there haven’t been any physical altercations between them in quite some time.

Ian claims that CPS is using his past against him, saying, “That could be the reason they haven’t given our children back.”
