Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com with your question. I will provide legal information related to your question.
Since you do not live in the same county, you will not likely get joint legal custody but you will get generous visitation and long summer visits. The domestic violence issue should not weigh heavily at all due to the time that has passed, the classes you have taken, and the fact that you have no reoffended. You may only get supervised short visits once a week or every other week for 6-12 months, it all depends on how the child reacts to the visits. Then you will get weekend visits and longer school break visits.
WHO WOULD NORMALLY BE THE ONE TO SUPERVISE THE VISITS IF REQUIRED? AM I TO EXPECT THIS BE AN ADDITIONAL EXPENSE FOR ME?
