Customer Question

I was living with my partner for 15+ years, 5 months ago she started accusing me of emotionally abusing her, she continued to escalate her accusations to the point of saying she could not take it any more because the knowledge of my existence was causing her stress and anxiety and she felt like she had no option but to move out and on with her life. I came across a card addressed to her "to my love" and signed "I love you baby doll, Brad". We have two boys, 11and 13 years of age and she left approximately one month ago. How can I protect my boys and myself from her pursuing custody and child support and how can I obtain custody and child support?

Good morning. Just to be clear, you were never married to her and there is no custody order in place at this time?
