I live in IL, I have a 2 year old grandson who has lived

I live in IL, I have a 2 year old grandson who has lived with us since birth. His father is my son and has a HX of addiction. He has been sober for 2 years but remains chronically irresponsible. His mother is also in recovery and Bipolar. His mother was served an OP 2 years ago that ends in one month. She has supervised visitation and my husband and I supervise her visits. My husband and I would like to pursue seeking grandparents rights due to the HX of drug use and mental illness in order to attempt to protect our grandson. Does my grandson have any rights to be protected or is just the property of his parents and until they "do harm" we must sit by and wait?

I was wondering if you could help me in the right direction.

Hi. I was wondering if you could help me in the right direction. I have been divorced for 4 years. The kids are now 18, 16, 12, and 9. My exhusband became an alcoholic immediately after the divorce, and we just cant ignore the issue anymore. I saved all my 12 year old daughter texts about the disgust of her dads drunkedness, he really only is just unreasonable and unkind, not physically abusive, and i dont think he drinks and drives, but i really wouldnt know. I dont know what to do because my 16 year old son and i have an extremely strained relationship and i would easily guess he would want to live w his dad. But my 9 year old daughter will be so torn by this, she still wants to believe in her daddy. But my 12 year old daughters texts are too heartbreaking and disturbing. He lives four doors away and i want to fix my roof and move in the opposite direction of him. Right now we have joint custody w me having primary conservatorship. I would like to go to standard custody or even supervised visits until he cleans his act. May you please reccommend something

I left my husband, June 1, 2011 after our kids therapist

I left my husband, June 1, 2011 after our kids therapist reported him to CPS. I told him where we were staying ( a friend of mine in Pasadena who we spent most weekends at because he would be drunk and having party's at the house )CPS was called on him again a year later by a teacher at our kids school.My husband filed a petition for Dissolution of Marriage on June 30, 2011. Nothing regarding the divorce has happened since.We were married Sept. 24, 2005He has a history of drug and alcohol abuse. He is an Narcissistic Alcoholic.He has a criminal history including possession with intent and 2 DUI's that I know about.He owns this house. I moved in with him the day after he closed escrow. I owned a house in Lake View Terrace that I sold when I was pregnant with our daughter in 2003 I put the money I received into fixing his house and payed for mutual living expenses.9/28/2011 we received a judgment of 50/50 custody.7/11/2013 I filed a modification. He was not adhering to the courts instructions.Our court date was to be on Monday September 9, 2013. I agreed to settle out of court with primary physical care and custody being awarded to me (80%) on the eve of 9/6/13 ( he waits until the last minute all the time to pressure me ) .I agreed as long as he would attend counseling on his own and with our kids. It is stated in the 9/16/2013 court orders that he will attend therapy.He has not attended a single session.I have continued to keep our kids and myself in therapy.He is also not to drink alcohol in front of our kids or for 12 hours before.He drank Tequila Rose in front of our kids at Monster Truck and offered our daughter a sip of it. He was also the one driving.He drank a Bud light at the Zoo in front of our kidsOn May 14, 2016 he asked our daughter to get him a non-alcoholic beer from his refrigerator. She returned with one each of the bottles in his refrigerator. One non-alcohol and a Shiner. She asked him "which one" he replied its that one but I like this one better. He then took the Shiner ( regular alcohol beer ) opened it and drank it in front of both kids saying "One won't hurt according to the court papers I can have one, I just can't have two because I have to be in the right state of mind around you."our kids know what he is allowed to do and not do around them so they know he lied. Also, they know that we had to leave because of his life long addiction to alcohol and how is short temper is even shorter and meaner when he's drinking.He canceled me from our health insurance during my cancer treatments.He refuses to finish the divorce because the debt is in my name and I have not filed bankruptcy.He is a hoarder with unsafe living conditionsHe has a GPS on our daughter's cell phone to stalk usHe constantly brings our kids home late and uses our kids as messengersHe says mean things about me to our kidsHe took them out of state for 10 days ( he gets 7 ) without my permission.We would like to move out of state ASAP. We are offered a 3 bedroom house for 1/2 of what we pay for rent in LA. I also have incurable cancer and have no one here in CA to assist me on bad days.How do I go about being able to move out of state? ( the kids want to go - ages 9 and 12 )How do I go about custody modification for full custody?How do I finish the divorce?Am I entitled to a percentage of our house?
