You may file a petition for custody (or, motion to modify custody, if a custody order is already in place). You will have to show why the children are not safe with her, and why it would be in their best interest to reside with you.

can and emergency hearing be held he has been divorced three times with all domestic violence charges filed
Expert:  Amber E. replied 7 years ago.
It will depend on how long the children have been in the household. If they have been living with him for months or years, then it will be more difficult to show that there is an "emergency". However, if they recently moved in with him, then yes, an emergency hearing would appear to be appropriate, based on the information you have provided. In any case, you may always ask; the worst that could happen is that your request for an emergency hearing be denied, but a trial date would still be set; you may also ask for temporary custody and have your lawyer set the hearing as quickly as possible.
