She should go to the police and file a report as well as he could be arrested and charged for these threats and removed from the home. If she filed for the protective order to keep him away, there will be a temporary order in place and then she will need to appear and testify and present evidence to show the judge she is in fear for her life and those of the children and the order should be put in place permanently. She can show the text messages and video as well, to support her position. Moreover, the judge can award her custody of the children as well
