Im having issues with my exhusband being verbally abusive to me. I had a restraining order in the past but dropped it after a year and a half. He claimed he changed and I believed him foolishly. Now he puts me down, makes accusations of me neglecting our daughter. Which is completely untrue. He says he doesnt have time for me and I am not his problem. I have sole physical custody, I want to go for sole legal custody too, we currently have joint legal. I also want the supervised visits back. How can I go about doing this again after I dropped both things? He is bipolar and has PTSD. He also appears to me to be a Sociopath. He argyues with me about everything. My daughter just turned seven and is moody and had crying fits the next day after seeing him. She is a very happy kid and lives with me her Mom. I dont know what to file in the court? I have many ttext messages as proof of verbal abuse to me. If I have sole physical and sole legal custody would he still be obligated to pay me child support? Is verbal abuse grounds to get the restraining order reinstated? How about the supervised visitations again? Thanks.
I believe there already is a no abuse order in place seperate to the restraining order in the past. If I file a contempt because he is in contempt of that modification I did a while ago ehat would happen? Fines, jail etc. If he gets put in jail and cannot work how would I get child support? I am dependent on the child support because thr only other oncome I have is disability. What would a contempt against him do exactly? I have never filed one before. Thanks.
