Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, any type of domestic violence in the presence of the child is a problem for you, including the fact you did not tell the truth trying to protect the abuser. The fact you did not tell the truth will be used against you by the court and they are going to push for supervised visitation at this point, you will have to undergo therapy and will have to make a complete break from the individual abuser as well before they would consider giving you back unsupervised visitation.

I told the truth, I do not talk to no more, I didn’t know he was abusive, and would hit me in front of my child, he fell when he hit me, he’s 1 years old. The father has a history as well threaten his mom with terorist threats, I don’t think the courts know that. Would my mom be able to get custody before court.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I told them what happen, to get away from him, I didn’t know they would get cps involved.

Thank you for your reply.

It is possible your mom could get custody if you prove the father is abusive as well, but you would have to have your mom get a local attorney and they would have to file in court with proof the father is abusive and that the child is in immediate danger of harm in order to get the custody before the next court date.

Yea he did a theroist threat at him mom house before baby was born, she had him arrested.

Thank you for your reply.

Your mom would have to provide evidence of that in court. If your mom can prove he is violent that is good cause for your mom to seek custody, but it has to be recent violent acts.

It was a year ago when I was pregnant baby is one he will be 2 in September

Thank you for your reply.

You have to show violence less than a year ago, if it is almost too years, the court can claim it is not recent enough.
