Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. With the current protection order in place, you should have at least temporary custody. If you are going to stay separated and divorce, then you can motion the court to award you custody of the child, at this time. The Judge is ALWAYS going to act in the best interest of the child, so you would want and need to present evidence to show that she is a danger and treat to the child and can not properly care for the child. A hearing will be held and evidence will be present, advising of the same. Moreover, with DCFS involved, there will be a record and they can appear in court to share their findings as well.
