She didn't take them to his funeral aS requested , and then didn't allow me to visit that day. She has totally broken the agreement. Does this void it ? How do I go about throwing this out ? It's not court ordered or anything to that effect .

My wife and I have been separated for 3 years and just now

My wife and I have been separated for 3 years and just now getting around to preparing paperwork for a divorce. Our question is if it's possible for one parent to have sole custody of our child, and the other isn't responsible for child support?We do have a verbal agreement of shared responsibilities for financial care and time spent with each parent. Since we get along so well post-marriage, and the time / money changes month to month, is that possible?

My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for 8 years.

My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for 8 years. We live together and have 3 year old twins together. When we argue he says he's going to take the kids and says cruel things that do not make sense. He says he loves our children but I know what is happening is not right because he is willing to have the children experience pain and fear to try to hurt me. He does not hurt me physically but he is mentally abusive and controlling. Realizing may have no choice but to separate to protect my children and myself. If I have the kids with me this evening and want to stay overnight at my Mother's house with them would I be able to do that? Usually I would be able to no problem, but I do not trust his intentions at this time. If I have the kids with me at my Mother's house because I do not feel safe and leave the home we share with our kids, how do I protect myself and keep custody? I would be going temporarily to my mothers who lives within 5 miles.
