    Answered . I am sorry that things have been difficult for you. If you feel that your spouse is mentally ill you can assemble her medical records (where appropriate) and other evidence that shows her mental state. This is usually best done by an experienced attorney for several reasons, the introduction of medical/mental status evidence is difficult and sometimes inadmissable, and you are very close to this case which will make it extremely hard for you to be objective. I hope things work out for you and I wish you and your children all the best. take good care.
