Going to court is a long and stressful thing.
If at the moment she can keep things as they are she should do nothing.
The longer the child is with her the greater the chance the court will leave things as they are. If he is threatening and abusive she should keep details and when court is started then have the dates and what was said as part of her evidence.
She is best to do nothing if things are ok.
If he is coming to the house and making threats to her she should take out an AVO
But generally she should do nothing.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further
