My main question is how can he be charged with domestic

My main question is how can he be charged with domestic violence when at home, and needing emotional help. No one was home, it was a wellness check and he was drunk outside. Not a threat to anyone else.

If in a divorce situation and both parties have an attorney,

If in a divorce situation and both parties have an attorney, but one party continues to badger, harass, place the other party under duress about agreeing to their terms and then threatens to take to court to a judge to get final, what can happen to that party? This party also continues to involve the children in the middle of conversations and have them relay messages or tells them not to tell the other parent what they are talking about.This party also wants custody of minor child (16) and child wants to reside with that party, however it is not in best interest of the child. The party is an active duty military that is PCSing to a new location in another state. This would uproot the child for his senior year of high school. The child is in top 10% of current class (less than 100 students), new school would be about 400 students. Child is an introvert and does not make friends quickly. He would not be eligible for scholarships, would not be able to attain honors diploma with new school. When father is away for military business - his plan of action is to leave the child with family support group personnel (people he will not know or have the child's best interest at heart). Child also has medical issues.Through mediation I am being told that no matter what is best for the child, the judge will grant the child's wish to live with the dad.Please I need more advice.

My husband married me with a 3 yr old. We have been married

My husband married me with a 3 yr old. We have been married 33 years. He was arrested 5 times for domestic and broke my finger and it had to be surgical fix with screws. He now has taken everything and all the money. So now he wants me to offset or give him money for raising her without child support. We did get CS for first 2-4 years and have been receiving it for the last 7 and it went into the budget that he benefited from it all. Can he do this?

My husband is currently on supervised release and paying restitution

My husband is currently on supervised release and paying restitution for a federal conviction. I am looking to divorce due to domestic abuse. He's telling me I can't and that we can't sell or refinance our house to be in his name because the Feds will step in to collect the proceeds for his restitution. Am I stuck?

I have visitation with my daughter with my ex wife.. these visits were arranged at her god parents 4 hours away. Last year the God parents (or ex) changed that and now the ex won't allow me to see my daughter unless I pay an agency for the visits. I haven't seen my daughter for months as a result.

Long story short, my husband got arrested over Easter weekend

Long story short, my husband got arrested over Easter weekend for domestic abuse and going after our kids. He has a slew of charges against him, some felonies. He only had a disorderly on his record from back in 2006. He deserves to suffer the consequences of his actions, but can't fathom screwing him over so bad that he loses his good job, any chance of fixing things with his kids, and getting mental help. He has suffered with depression, anger issues, anxiety, and was in the trial period of a new medication for bi-polar. He makes too much for a public defender, but can't afford $7500 up front for a good criminal lawyer. I send in my victim forms and my requests for him (that I would like to see become of him, any tips with that??) this week, and he goes to his pretrial conference with the DA on the 13th. If he does not like the offer they put together for him, what happens next? Can he still look for a lawyer? I don't know what to expect for him. My husband is a good father and husband and very hard worker and provider. Due to his mental condition, he snapped and made some very poor choices. I want him to take responsibility for his actions, but I dont want them to lock him up and throw away the key either. ANY advice is appreciated!!
