I have joint custody of my kids. I am the custodial parent, kids live with me. Kids dad does absolutely nothing with kids except take them to movies or whatever. Barely picks them up, doesn't go to dr appt, school stuff, nothing. He constantly video tapes us, records us, etc. my oldest has severe anxiety because of it. doesn't want to see his dad. Dad recently came into some money. He told me he would pay me $300k plus extra for custody of kids or he will break me and my family in court and I will have nothing. Money talks he says and he will pay whomever off to testify that I am a bad mom. I want to sue for full custody and hange his visitation to once a month for the emotional abuse. Can I do that?

I have been divorced little over a year. The judge ordered

I have been divorced for a little over a year. The judge ordered joint custody, no child support but each party be equal responsible for all medical, school, extra school activities and both of us keep insurance on our 7 year old little girl. So far, I have paid everything with no reimbursement, he has no insurance on her and isn't even furnishing her a roof. He has been living in with his mother in a 1 bedroom assisted living apartment and my daughter is so unhappy. She doesn't go clean when there, I have marked her underware and she has worn for 3 days. I marked with washable markers. She has bruisies all the times and we were in a violent marriage. I worry about her, he has to listen when she talks to me when he has her and you can hear the quiver in her voice. I think she is afraid of him and he bullys her. I know I can take him back for contempt but I want the custody to be modified more so. I am willing to take full responsibility of her and all her financial needs and him have every other weekend visitation. I have document evidence of all of this very much to the point and texts where he is always threatening me to have the law come and pick me up. I have followed the court order to a perfect T. Also, now he says he is moving and the address he gave me does not exist, I called 911 to verify and can get a letter to this effect. Should I file motion for temporary custody,contempt and modification of divorce decree all at the same time.

I have a question on divorce or disillusionment. I have been

I have a question on divorce or disillusionment. I have been separated from my husband for three years in Ohio. I left him because of physical and emotional abuse. We had three kids together, the youngest will be 18 years old in two weeks. We bought a house together in the marriage, money invested, 20,000 roughly, have paperwork. Also, have police reports and children that witnessed the abuse.Now, current situation, after a year of separation I moved on, I am with someone else and 27 weeks pregnant. He also moved on and is dating someone too. We wanted a disillusionment, but since he is making things complex, thinking about a divorce. He claims he would file for adultery, but obviously we both moved on through the years and found someone else. What would be the best situation for me?Thinking about a lawyer near the Middletown OH area, thanks!~Crystal

In 2012, my ex-husband and I divorced with joint custody.currently,

In 2012, my ex-husband and I divorced with joint custody.currently, 50 50. One child, now 4 years old. My son has been saying daddy has been meaning to him, screaming angrily. My son also said daddy hit him with a stick, saying "daddy was angry with me, he hit me in the leg with a stick, because I was being rude" according to a victim advocate, Florida law allows corporal punishment as long as the child isn't pulverized, that emotional abuse isn't seen as actual abuse. My son says he's scared of daddy and he never wants to see daddy again. His father, two weeks ago, was diagnosed with rapid cycling bipolar disorder with cooccuring anxiety. When I confronted daddy with what his son was saying, he admitted the yelling but denies the hitting and has no remorse or reaction to his son being scared. He is currently in the mix of trying different meds, according to him. For now, he has agreed to stay away until meds slow down. How do I protect my child? I don't want my son to experience the same emotional abuse I did. Legal aide won't help, since a child custody evaluation would be the second time of custody court. In the state of Florida, what can I possibly do? Can I keep my son away without a revised court order due to the mental illness being recently documented? What options do I have? I do not have thousands of dollars to throw in for a battle, but I'm hoping somehow Florida can protect my child from harm
