You would have a VERY good case to ask for full custody. The court takes possible abuse and child pornography very seriously and just on its face, you have a great chance for full custody. You should file an expedited custody Petition with the Court in the county in which you live. The new PA custody law provides help when you believe the other party is facing a criminal charge. In this case, you may file an Expedited Petition. The court must schedule your hearing as soon as possible. To obtain evidence of the criminal charge, go to http://www.jendaveprogram.us/ and follow the instructions carefully. The court recognizes information obtained through this program as evidence in custody cases. Go to your county courthouse or family court. Call the courthouse or check its website for the address. You should bring any important papers and information such as previous custody orders, protection from abuse orders, the opposing party’s address, and social security numbers for all parties. In many PA counties, you must complete your own petition, according to the rules of your county court, and take it to court.
