No we have not file for divorce yet, we are in the process of seeing a marriage counselor and I've removed myself and my older son from a previous relatetionship away from the house because things became physcial and I verbally attacked .
My step motherinlaw is limiting my time with my young son who is 3 yrs old and my husband is currently living with her at this time .
Can I just removed my son from the mother in law at any time ? even when my husband is not at home ? and can they go behind my back to file for custody ?
