I am writing a letter to a judge in support of my son who

I am writing a letter to a judge in support of my son who has an injunction against his wife (a divorce is in progress) to keep her out of the family home and away from the young children due to her alcoholism and mental health problems which she refuses to seek treatment for. She is violent and has been arrested for domestic violence against my son and constantly has violent rage filled outbursts in front of the children who are 2 and 4 yrs old. He has records of more than 8 calls to 911, the arrest, & recently she almost received a DUI for being intoxicated in her parked car but since the keys were not in the ignition and her mother came to her rescue the police did not arrest her. The following day her mother had to call 911 and signed papers to have her Baker acted (Florida Mental Health hold) but she convinced the Dr's she was fine and they released her after 3 hours! I have been a witness to many of her violent outbursts and her drinking problem. She is terrifying and damaging the hearts and souls of my beautiful grandchildren. My son is a wonderful patient loving father and is desperate to keep his little boys safe. I want to know how best to write a letter to help my son.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Florida....not a real estate question.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The domestic violence injucntion was filed and approved two weeks ago and there is a hearing on the 18th, my son is hoping to keep the order in place until she has an evaluation for mental health and addiction issues.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My son is in the Navy stationed in Jacksonville, the Child protection Services which have been involved several times (claims against mom) but she has been trying to convince everyone involved that she is the victim and her drinking and rage is his fault. It is not him, he is not abusive verbally or otherwise, (not saying that because I am his mother) I have been around them more than anyone and have witnessed her drinking excessively and having manic violent outburst even when my son was deployed overseas.

I live in Lancaster PA. My husband has a bad history with

I live in Lancaster PA. My husband has a bad history with alcohol abuse. He is an alcoholic. He has been drinking lately and flipping out verbally on me. He is literally verbally abusive saying such things as "you should put a gun in your mouth" and "I hope your bitch of a mom dies soon". The stuff coming out of his mouth is insane. He literally sounds like a crazy person. He was in my face yelling at me so hard yesterday he was bright red and literally foaming at the mouth. His 2 sons also live with us and he acts like this in front of them. I do not believe he should have custody of them and they should go back to living with their bio mom until he gets the help he needs. He has refused to leave the house. Could I get a PFA and have him ordered to leave the house? He is frightening. Please advise. THanks

I want to take my ex to court for primary custody of our

I want to take my ex to court for primary custody of our child. We currently have joint. The reason behind this is that might move in a few years and our daughter needs stability. I want to ensure I have a shot before I involve our daughter in the court mess. Unfortunately, the only thing I have is that my ex suffers from a narcisstic disorder so it is very difficult to prove this in court. This is what I have so far:School: has been late 11 times within a 30 day period. Homework log is never signed saying Summer(daughter) completed work. Never paid $300 in daycare fees so I paid for it even though I never used daycare and she gets child support with daycare included.Misc: Never remained consistent with bringing out daughter to her Soccer or Ballet classes because Summer didn't feel like it. Wouldn't sign her up for ballet or support ballet for our daughter so I had to work with the ballet to change days for when I have my daughter and pay for it even though her mother argued that day of performance she dressed our daughter cause she is the mother.Stability: her mother gives me a two extra days of the week cause it helps her out with school. But whenever she is mad she takes that time away causing inconsistency for our daughter. Not to mention homework never gets completed correctly or even done during that time period. She recently moved out of her bfs house with three other adults where our 5 year daughter slept in same room as her and her bf for four years. Now she lives in a new apartment but involves our daughter in her problems. She wants to break up with her bf but can't cause his name is ***** ***** lease so she stays with him but constantly tells our daughter "we hate nick." When she had my daughter call that man dad for four years and it started after two months of knowing him.Relationship: my ex never works with me. She will demand things her way and if she doesn't get it she calls me all sorts of names including making threats. I do have texts. She never works with me. I even have texts from her saying she wants to make my life difficult in purpose.Slander: she has ruined my reputation to friends and her family by accusing me of all sorts of things that are not true through messages and social media.Health: it is my ex responsibility to take care of medical and dental for our daughter and I asked her three times to take Summer to the doctors and she didn't. So I finally took her and then told her what the doctor said during the physical. She yelled at me and accused me of hurting our child because she just took her to the doctors and she received the same shots. I got worried naturally, so called her doctor who informed me they had not seen summer in two years.I even had to take Summer to the dentist recently after asking Sam to please take her couple times.Is there anyway this could help me win in court because to be honest, I DO NOT feel comfortable or at ease knowing our daughter might be spending everyday for few months with my ex especially during school. Her mother isn't physically abusive but she is definitely hurting our child.
