On valentine's day, my husband and I got into an

On valentine's day, my husband and I got into an altercation. I asked him to stop screaming in front of our son and he screamed I don't give a f**k in his face. His arms and face were bright red from screaming. He wouldn't stop. I asked him to leave at least 5 times and he wouldn't. He was blocking both entry ways. I punched him in the chest and kicked him in the balls to try and get him out of my way. He didn't even hit the floor. While I am holding Zakkary, He punched me full force in the face, putting us both on the floor. He called the cops on me and I was arrested because I hit him first. I am now facing a domestic violence charge, a child abuse charge, and a harassment charge. Is there a way to reverse this or have it dismissed? I am in Colorado.

We are going thru divorce. My ex and me cant agree on

We are going thru divorce. My ex and me cant agree on custody battle. Our son has autism.He called police to check on me, threatened to call Child Protective Services and reported me to the government agency IHSS where I receive social security payments for my son. These payments are my only income :(I have email from my ex showing that he requested that we settle for insignificant amount, otherwise he is going to call IHSS and create issues. I believe it is blackmailing.Ex said that our son doesn't have autism and doesn't need therapy and services, he also claimed that I lied on time sheets that I fill out every week because our son was spending a few days per week at daycare and with him. He also said that now we have 50% custody and child spends 1 week with me and 1 week with his dad so I should get paid for less hours.I believe I didn't violate anything because I was still watching our son 50 hours per week but I feel very uncomfortable. I never had any trouble with the law before. Now they are going to conduct investigation and he said District Attorney will be involved :(What could be possible outcome of this situation?What is the penalty for violations like this?I have pictures of my ex masturbating next to our child"s bed and video showing he left our child all by himself late at night and went to the gym. Would it be too suspicious if I show it to police? I believe these are serious criminal violations.Ex also had domestic violence, drug abuse and has mental issues- anxiety and depression for which he is taking daily medication. Will investigators going to take this into consideration?

I had a disorderly conduct charge from about 20 years ago and it had been expunged. And the horrible part was there were accusations of me saying the f word which never happened. However moving forward I was charged with child abuse and neglect by leaving my twins boys 16 months old in a car while pottying my daughter and buying a cable to get a picture for her class which is a class 6 felony. Do I need to tell my lawyer about the disorderly conduct since it was 20 years agoyears ago ?
