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

My husband was arrested on a domestic abuse (terrostic

My husband was arrested on a domestic abuse (terrostic threat misdemeanor). His daughter, from another woman, knew of some of the arguments that happened around his daughter. For about 4 years. She is 10 now. After he was arrested i called her and told her what happened because his daughter was close to me.After a few weeks I quit talking to her. After the protective order was lifted he came by to getsome things and also brought his daughter. Even though the ex was not happy, my husband and her had a conversation about the daughter being safe and ok. He brought her here a couple of times since. Christmas, she sent the daughter with a phone watch. She just told my husband it was a toy, but could call the mom and stepdad. Then the daughter constantly stayed on it the first night, crying for her mom. She never did that before. Long story short, i made her leave it here when we went places. The mom got ticked and now says she is going to get an attorney to keep her from here because i might hurt her. (Which I have never had any cross words with. I was close to his daughter). Can she subpoena me to work against him?He still has the case ongoing with DA reharding me. We are in the process of divorcing, but wished to remain friends .

My daughter filed for divorce almost a year ago now. The

My daughter filed for divorce almost a year ago now. The basis was ongoing domestic abuse, deceit, tax fraud and more.After 2 years of abuse (not physical) she found out that her husband was bi-sexual and concluded that was likely a major contributor to the abuse.They have one child, a 3 year old son.The judges focus at this point seems totally the well being of the child as it should be. However, there are other issues on the table.Unfortunately, the mother and father can not agree on anything regarding their son. My daughter would like primary physical custody with limited time allowed to the father due to his character and morals. In addition to the abuse, he lies, has committed adultery, tax fraud and swears incessantly.Q#1 - As our country has now embraced alternate lifestyles, will the judge not consider the bi-sexual lifestyle to be one of valid issues during custody considerations?Q#2 - Regarding the issue of tax fraud, can the judge address that or does a separate filing need to be done?Q#3 - 10 credit cards were initiated jointly without her knowledge. There is debt in the amount of 9K; none of which she created. Can the judge assign responsibility for the debt during this hearing and decree?

I left a bad relationship back in June. I had filed domestic

I left a bad relationship back in June. I had filed domestic abuse chargeso against my ex but it was determined that the incident was due to the current situation and unlucky to occur again so charges were dropped. The incident occurred in Colorado were we were considered common law. Immediately following the incident I moved back to Maine with our daughters, ages 6 and 1. My mom whom we are living with currently spoke with a lawyer who advised that we wait until I had been a resident of Maine for 6 months before filing any paperwork for divorce. My ex is asking to have our oldest daughter come to visit him over Christmas break but I feel that would be unwise without a custody agreement in place to protect all parties. So I am looking to find out what would be the best way to go about a custody agreement as well as filing for the divorce. What sort of time frame and what the difference is between Colorado law and Maine law as far as both custody and divorce go.
