I mean, if you can prove those facts by clear and convincing evidence in court, then not a snowball's chance in hell is that man going to get custody of those kids. He sounds like a lunatic.
Lawsuit / Dispute Attorney
If you can get or have a family violence protective order against him, the answer is a resounding "no". Get a lawyer involved. Protect yourself and your children.
I am not intending this to be legal advice, because I don't know the particulars of your situation. Call me if you would like to discuss this or other isues.
The default in SAPCR orders is standard possession, which is unsupervised roughly 1st, 3rd, 5th weekends, month in summer, alternating holidays. However, the restraining order (I'm guessing actually "protective order") may provide far more restrictions, or may not mention kids at all. If it's a 2 year PO, with major restrictions, that sounds like may be what you want, but worth talking to a lawyer to be ure. If it's only a 90-day EPO or something even less, DEFINITELY talk to a lawyer.
The above is legal information, not legal advice. If you have not paid me and signed a contract, we do not have an attorney-client relationship and I am not your lawyer. â€¢ Christine Henry Andresen â€¢ www.chalaw.com
